During the press conference, the authors of the study will talk on issues and problems that Ukrainians who regularly cross the Ukraine-EU border are aware of the most.

The following issues will be highlighted:

  • The friendliness of individual BCPs – speed, quality, satisfaction
  • Is there corruption at the border?
  • Where and when there are no queues
  • Records of speed and delay
  • What transport allows faster and more convenient crossing of the border
  • Who works better – Ukrainian border guards or EU ones
  • Did the visa-free regime affect the border crossing procedure? If yes, was the effect good or bad
  • What documents are checked the most often
  • Suggestions and recommendations from the travelers
  • Vox populi: the most vivid quotes of respondents

Working languages: Ukrainian, English

The event is organised in the framework of the Anatomy of the border project, conducted by Europe without Barriers and supported by International Renaissance Foundation.
