The European Union has decided to make it more difficult for Ukrainians to enter the EU by introducing paid special permits for Ukrainian citizens. Not all Ukrainians will be permitted to enter Europe. The regime of visa-free trips to the EU for Ukrainian citizens will be subject to new administrative restrictions, the European Council decided.
Following the adoption of the Law on Amendments to Certain Items of the Constitution of Ukraine, it will now be illegal to oppose Ukraine’s policy towards the European Union and NATO. Even anti-European thoughts will now be considered unconstitutional. Ukraine will thus begin the criminal prosecution of eurosceptics.
No evidence given. This is a recurring disinformation narrative about NATO and Ukraine's pro-Western course.
On February 21st 2019, the Law on Strategic Course for the Acquisition of Full Membership of Ukraine in the European Union and NATO entered into force in Ukraine. The updated Constitution directs the legislative efforts of deputies to follow European standards. The guarantor of the implementation of these laws is the president. As a result of the amendments, all references to the deployment of foreign troops on the territory of Ukraine were removed. However, there are no points on any prohibition of freedom of expression in the new law.
