EU should grant work permits to Ukrainians in addition to visa-free travel - Putin
Russian President Vladimir Putin supported the visa-free travel regime between Ukraine and the European Union but said that Europe should also grant work permits to Ukrainians.
"I wholeheartedly support this. What is more, I believe that the visa regime in Europe is a Cold War anachronism and it should be rid of as soon as possible," Putin said at a press conference on Friday.
"If Ukraine, Ukrainian citizens are given the right of visa-free travel to Europe, I believe it would be a right step in the right direction," the Russian president said.
