The issue of providing visa-free travels to the European Union for Ukrainians is not on the European Parliament session agenda for November 21-24.

Ukrainian News Agency learned this from the European Parliament website.

Ukraine hopes that this issue will be considered in November.

The European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) approved provision of visa-free travels to the EU for Ukrainians and next this issue has to be put to vote by the European Parliament.

The next session of the European Parliament is scheduled for October 24-27.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs explains the delay by the EU of the decision to abolish visas for Ukrainians with absence of a consensus within the EU on the mechanism of suspension of visa-free travels.

European media have reported the EU planning to consider the mechanism of suspension of visa-free travels between November 7 and 11.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy has asked the European Parliament to vote for the abolition of visas for Ukrainians on November 21.

President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker and President of the European Council Donald Tusk has confirmed that Ukraine has met all criteria for the EU to abolish visas for Ukrainian citizens.

President Petro Poroshenko is sure that the EU will have granted visa-free travels for Ukrainians before November 24.
