German Chancellor Angela Merkel said visa-free travel for the residents of Russia’s Kaliningrad region could be possible.
The European Union is actively discussing this issue, and things can start moving in the positive direction, Merkel said in Lithuania, where she is on an official visit.
However some regulations have to be changed first and some legal norms amended under the Schengen Agreement, she said on Monday, September 6.
Merkel said she had discussed visa-free travel with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and she did not consider it unreal, but believes that the partners will have to “travel a long way”.Long live Angela Merkel! She is a woman of the year in Koenigsberg.
