President of the city of Odesa paid a working visit to Petro Poroshenko. The head of state together with the Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Filipp and the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov took part in the opening of the updated Ukrainian-Moldovan passport "Palanka-Mayaki-Udobna".

"It is very important that our countries fulfill their commitments, their program of cooperation with our EU partners, because there was an agreement that the work will be carried out and the launch will take place in 2018. One check of passports instead of two, one common customs care, one common base. And for ordinary people, this is an element of protection of their rights, freedoms, security, and at the same time it is an extremely effective measure to combat smuggling and corruption, "said Petro Poroshenko.

The Ukrainian-Moldavian crossing point for the motorway "Palanka" is located 60 km from Odesa on the route "Odessa - Reni". Its development was carried out at the expense of the European Union with a budget of $ 5 million in the territory of the Republic of Moldova. It is expected that within a day he will miss up to 6 thousand people and up to 2 thousand units of transport.

The head of state added that this is the implementation of the Eastern Partnership program on integrated border management. To date, Ukraine has allocated an additional 4 million euros to build infrastructure for common border crossing points, including Kuchurgan and Reni.
