Poland introduces a visa-free regime for Ukrainian citizens, living in the 50km border zone.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this at a press conference after the meeting of Ukrainian and Polish delegations in Kyiv today.

“The agreement, which was signed today, facilitates crossing the border for citizens of Ukraine, living in 50km border zone. This means they will be able to cross the border without visas and as many times as they need. This is a visa-free regime of border crossing”, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.

In his turn, Prime Minister of Poland Donald Tusk pointed out that the negotiations with Ukraine on the text of the agreement were rather complicated and long due to the demands, set by the European Union after Poland joined the Schengen Zone.

Yulia Tymoshenko stressed that in the course of the talks, Poland support the variant of the text that was the best for Ukraine.

As UNIAN reported earlier, today the Polish and Ukrainian Prime Ministers signed four documents, including the Agreement on Local Border Movement Regulations.
