A legislative motion to cancel visas for Ukraine is being postponed until after a Dutch referendum on the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, Brussels reporter for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Rikard Jozwiak wrote on Twitter on Friday, February 26.

"EU Com proposal for visa lib for Georgia will come next week. Ukraine might have to wait till after 6 Apr Association Agreement referendum in the Netherlands," he tweeted.

Earlier, it was reported that the European Commission would present to the EU Council a legislative initiative to abolish visas separately for Ukraine and Georgia.

On February 25, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed laws needed for the introduction of the visa-free regime between Ukraine and the European Union, according to the president's official website.

Yet, consultations on the law on electronic declarations are under way with the European Commission in order to elaborate possible amendments to return criminal liability for false information in income declarations. The president says he believes these amendments will be in line with the best European practice.
