Before the debate began on the issue of granting a visa-free regime for Ukraine, fire alarms were activated in the premises of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, so all deputies were evacuated from the building of the European Parliament.
Earlier, during his visit in Denmark, the President of Ukraine said that, the voting in the European Parliament on visa-free regime for Ukrainians would take place on April 6.
“Now the European Parliament is debating on the completion of considerating the visa-free regime for Ukraine. And April 6, there must be a final vote on granting Ukrainians rights to travel around free Europe without visas," the President said.
Previously, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine predicted the introduction of a visa-free regime for Ukrainian citizens by the summer of this year.
