Ukraine on agenda for Visegrad meeting

Czech Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek will discuss the situation in Ukraine with ministers from Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia at a Visegrad Four meeting in Budapest on Monday. The meeting will also be attended by representatives of Bulgaria, Romania, and Greece. One issue likely to be raised is whether visa restrictions on Ukrainians can be relaxed if the situation in their country deteriorates even further. The Czech minister of the interior, Milan Chovanec, said on Wednesday that such a step could be taken.
