"We must go beyond this, because we still have many objectives in terms of European integration, since the goal of integration into the EU remains. We are entering EU's internal market not by means of an abstract integration but realistic, sectoral one carried out through the Association Agreement. We are gradually integrating into the EU's area of freedom, security, and justice through the signing of documents on visa-free travel," Yelisieiev said.
