Ukraine Does Not Pose a “Migration Threat” to the European Union

16 October 2015


In an article published on the news portal EurActiv, Iryna Sushko and Kateryna Kulchytska from ‪EaP CSF member organization, the Ukrainian think tank “Europe without Barriers”, show that despite political unrest and internal conflict, ‪‎Ukraine does not pose any “‪‎migration threat” to the EU.

Given Ukraine’s considerable progress in implementing the Visa Liberalisation Action Plan (VLAP), the effective measures in tackling cross-border trafficking and other important arguments based on verified data presented in the article, the authors conclude that the EU member states should support the visa-free regime after the Visa Liberalisation Action Plan (‪‎VLAP) is fully implemented.
