On 27 June, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will pay a working visit to Brussels to take part in the Ukraine-EU high-level political consultations, according to his official website.

Consultations or the Ukraine-EU mini-summit will be dedicated to the discussion of the results of the UK referendum on the EU membership and their influence on the Ukraine-EU relations, ways to further mobilize EU support for reforms in Ukraine, maximum use of DCFTA potential and introduction of the visa-free regime.

Poroshenko plans to use the negotiations in Brussels for the formation of consensus among the EU member-states on the prolongation of economic sanctions against Russia due to its aggression against Ukraine.

The mini-summit will be attended by President of the European Council Donald Tusk, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini and leading commissioners.

The president will have a separate meeting with European Parliament President Martin Schulz to coordinate actions on visa liberalization for Ukraine.
