Israel, Ukraine now visa free


Israel and Ukraine signed an agreement canceling visas between the two countries.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kostyantyn Gryshchenko on Wednesday signed a reciprocal visa cancellation agreement in Jerusalem.

The agreement, which means that Israelis and Ukrainians do not need visas to visit the other country, is “an expression of the good and stable relationship” between the two countries, Lieberman said.

It is the second such agreement Israel has signed. Israel and Russia have had a visa-free agreement for more than a year.

The Shas Party, a member of the coalition government, objected to the agreement, saying it would increase crime and prostitution.
