President of Ukraine


We don't have peace for one reason: Russians are not interested in reaching peace. They are interested in exerting control.

The decision of the European Parliament is much broader than visa-free travel or freedom of movement. It means greater pride for Ukrainian citizenship and greater attractiveness of Ukrainian passport. It is a symbol of Ukraine’s belonging to common European civilization. It is a bright marker that Ukraine is a part of united Europe, from Lisbon to Kharkiv, and we share common values. It is an evidence of strategic correctness of our European choice, success and irreversibility of our course towards integration into Europe.
