"My goal is to make Ukraine part of the Schengen zone so that one can travel non-stop on the borders from Kharkiv [in Ukraine's east] to Lisbon," he said on Ukraine's ICTV channel on Monday evening.

As reported earlier, Poroshenko said he would go to Berlin on May 20 to hold talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
