Lithuania's Foreign Affairs Minister hopes the European Union will accelerate a visa liberalization for Ukraine

The European Commission on Wednesday, April 20, may put forward a proposal for the abolition of a visa regime for the Ukrainians who travel to the EU, that's according to a Brussels correspondent of RFE/RL Rikard Jozwiak.

"The proposal for visa liberalization for Ukraine will most probably come tomorrow," Rikard Jozwiak tweeted.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the European Commission had not specified the date when it would decide to grant Ukraine a visa-free regime, but confirmed that it would happen in April.

On March 17, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said the European Commission in April was ready to make a proposal for visa liberalization with Ukraine.
