    The EU Council has extended the "trade visa-free regime" for a year. For the next 12 months, the duty-free trade regime with the European Union will be in effect, thus making mutual trade more stable and predictable. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a Government meeting on 14 May.

    "We are also looking forward to the extension of the 'transport visa-free regime'. And we look forward to the signing of the ACAA agreement, which will remove barriers for exporters of our industrial goods," said Denys Shmyhal.

    In addition, the Council of the European Union approved the Plan developed by the Ukrainian Government, which paves the way for the activation of all options of the Ukraine Facility programme.

    " With the approval of the Plan, Ukraine will receive almost EUR 1.9 billion in funding this month. In total, this year we expect to receive EUR 16 billion under the Ukraine Facility. And the total amount of support under this programme will be EUR 50 billion for the upcoming 4 years," the Prime Minister said.

    Denys Shmyhal stressed that Ukraine's European course meant not only the prospect of EU membership, but also tangible and practical results right now.
