In Reply to: Ukrainian view about changes to visa rules? posted by Constantine on March 04, 2005 at 23:31:06:
Ok, I understand that a lot of ukrainians are illegal immigrants, but why:
- citizen of Romania can enter EU countries without need of visa and stay for 6 months. Do you really think that desire to leave for the green pasture of romanian is lower than of ukrainian? The same applies for Bulgaria, Croatia, Baltic countries. So it is mostly political question not economical;
- a friend of mine, more than 500 K$ on banking account, numerous credit cards, a lots of property in Ukraine, owner of several reputable companies was denied the 5 years business visa despite the fact he owns 2 companies in US! How can you explain that?
To Jacko - keep silence about similarity of Ukrainian and Russian language since you most probable do not know both of them. Those languages are more different than Spanish and Italian.
