Ukraine's ambassador to Israel Yevhen Korniychuk did not say that the Cabinet of Ministers was to consider suspending visa-free travel with Israel in the coming days. This information is not true, he told LB.ua.
"The issue of suspending visa-free travel is indeed being considered in Kyiv at the highest political level, but there is no talk of an urgent government decision. This is a fake that, unfortunately, was picked up by the Ukrainian and some Israeli media," the ambassador said.
He noted that the situation is complicated due to a sharp increase in the number of deportations of Ukrainian refugees from Israel.
"Ukraine will protect the interests of its citizens wherever they are, at any cost," he added.
According to some recent reports, the Cabinet of Ministers will make a final decision on suspending visa-free travel with Israel in the coming days.
