A vote by the European Parliament to approve visa-free travel for Ukrainians to the European Union has not been postponed until April, Maud Noyon, the press officer of European Parliament President Martin Schulz, told the Kyiv Post on Dec. 15.
Earlier in the day, the date of April 3 appeared on the parliament’s official website as an indicative date for EU approval of visa-free travel for Ukrainians session. A date in early 2017 had been expected, and the news that the coveted visa-free travel had supposedly been postponed quickly spread among Ukraine’s media.
Noyon explained that it would be a mistake to say the date is final. No exact date has been determined yet.
