Russia wants to agree with the European Union in the near time on steps that would allow drawing up an accord on a visa-free travel regime
Russia wants to agree with the European Union in the near time on steps that would allow drawing up an accord on a visa-free travel regime, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko has said. “I can call certain criteria that are of great significance. First of all, these are protection of travel documents, cooperation in the border development, cooperation in the migration sphere and some other questions that are an indispensable part of the visa-free regime,” he said in an interview with the newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta published on Wednesday. He was asked how many years the transition to the visa-free regime could take. “I want this period to be as short as possible, but, of course, much will depend in this matter on the stance of the European Union,” Grushko said. He said that two agreements, on simpler visa procedures and on readmission, were to be signed at the Russia-EU summit in Sochi. “The first agreement that we consider as a step in the direction of establishing a visa-fee regime between Russia and the EU is oriented towards substantially facilitating mutual trips for categories of citizens who most frequently visit the European Union and Russia, respectively,” Grushko said. He explained that the categories would include businessmen, artists, athletes, university and school students and some others
