Summary of Disinformation

Visa-liberalisation with Ukraine will lead to the influx of Ukrainian neonazis into Europe. Also, there is a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.

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.
