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.

Disproof

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.

Ukraine considers ending its cooperation with the Crimean Tatar Mejlis

Ukraine is reassessing its friendly relations with Turkey and considering ending its cooperation with the Crimean Tatar representative council, the Mejlis.

Disproof

Zvezda does not cite any particular source for this claim and only generically refers to Ukrainian and European media. Further debunking at StopFake.
