Meeting with a visiting delegation from Georgia's Finance Ministry today, Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said it was necessary to allow Georgian citizens to stay in Ukraine for one year without a visa.

He said the change was necessary to equate the rights of Georgians and Ukrainians, who were allowed to stay in Georgia without a visa for one year.
