European Commission congratulated Ukraine on its decision to drop the visa regime for Bulgaria and Romania on Thursday.

"We highly appreciate the assurance of Ukraine's Foreign Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk that this step aims at easing the seal of an agreement between his country and the block on alleviating visa regime for Ukrainian nationals wishing to visit the EU," an EC spokesperson said.

The institution however failed to announce when the agreement is to be signed.

"We expect to receive some document from Ukraine and then should peruse them," the spokesperson added.

The EU has called on Ukraine to undertake such an action about a month ago. The main argument was that as of January 2007Bulgaria and Romania are members of the EU and all relations with them should be equal to those with older members.

Its all well and good congratulating the Ukrainians for dropping the need for visa's for Bulgarians and Romanians but really, come on, who wants to go to the Ukraine? Even if the Ukrainians payed people to go to their country i'm sure not many people would bother.
