Fedor Smirnov. Providing the citizens of Ukraine visa-free regime from EU will cause a sharp reaction from Ankara, said Last news Turkish political scientist Aydin Sezer.
The dialogue between the EU and Ukraine on visa liberalisation was launched in 2008, and in November 2010 the EU has made the initiative of Ukraine action plan on visa liberalization. Since then, the European Commission published five reports on the progress of Kiev on the way to the abolition of visas, the sixth report is required to be published in early winter.
"If the right to visa-free travel to the EU Ukraine will be granted, then Turkey, which for many years cannot get from the EU a visa-free regime, demonstrate quite a sharp reaction. We are With the EU in the Customs Union, But our businessmen have to obtain visas to conduct its activities in the European Union. For this reason, such a decision in relation to Ukraine, Turkey deems it a great injustice, " said Sezer.
according to his statement, the conclusion on granting Ukraine a visa-free regime will Not have an impact on similar dialogues that lead Turkey To the EU. But, said the expert, granting the right to visa-free entry for citizens of Ukraine from the EU is now unlikely.
"If such a decision is made, It will be a big surprise. The EU on the background of migration falls, as well as the Paris terrorist attacks to any liberalization of the visa regime will Not go. Don't think for the sake of Ukraine will be grandfathered. Moreover, certain countries due to security at the present time put the question of withdrawal from the Schengen area. If in the near future terrorist attacks in the European Union will continue with the Schengen agreement it will be possible to put a cross ", - said the expert.
From the EU perspective, there is no advantage in granting Ukrainian citizens visa-free entry, on the contrary there are significant risks, paid attention Sezer.
"The European Union is currently trying to solve the problem of illegal migration and illegal labour market. Taking into account the difficult economic situation in Ukraine, the number of its Inhabitants, wishing to get the European Union to find a job there will be more. This will exacerbate pressure on the labour market in the EU. In addition, there are other risks associated With prostitution and crime ", - added the head of the Department.
