Štefan Füle, European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy, spoke at the International Conference "The Way Ahead for the Eastern Partnership" in Ukraine on the 11 October 2013, about the content of this agreement and the path which needs to be followed in this respect.
Despite the benefits of EU's Eastern Partnership, which would allow Ukrainian citizens to benefit from a lighter visa regime and be issued long-term multiple visas, a number of Ukrainian journalists invited to attend a Brussels conference on the 15 October 2013 were issued with visas valid for only two days, a decision that showed the "bad will attitude" of the EU towards Ukrainian media, according to the affected journalists.
