Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

Visa-liberalisation for Ukrainians will lead to fewer working opportunities for Czechs

Visa-liberalisation for Ukrainians will lead to fewer working opportunities for Czechs; it may also lead to the spreading of Ukrainian mafias and ultranationalists into Europe. Ukraine is violating the rights of whole groups of its population.


The visa liberalisation will grant Ukrainians only short-term visits to Europe (90 days every half a year), and is not connected to the issue of labour liberalisation for Ukrainians. The visa liberalisation doesn't mean abolition of border security checks. Furthermore, all Ukrainians seeking to use the visa-free regime will have to posses a biometric passport. (More details on the visa process here).

Ukraine has no policy of repressions towards any of its population groups.
