Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said that the European Union has no concerns regarding possible wave of migrants from Ukraine after the introduction of a visa-free regime, an UNIAN correspondent reported on Tuesday from a press briefing following a meeting of the 13th Reform Council in Kyiv.


"It is important to understand that the European Union has no concerns regarding the migration flow from Ukraine. I remember the time when we began to implemen the agreements on small border traffic with Poland, Slovakia, Hungary; and sometimes concerns were heard in Brussels that the Ukrainians would not comply with the established 30-km zone, some of them will be in Warsaw, some in Vienna, someone in Berlin... Over the whole period, over the years of implementation of these agreements, there have only been isolated cases of violations," Klimkin said.
