Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Brazil Rostyslav Tronenko said this in an interview with Ukrinform.

"Ukraine and Brazil have a visa-free agreement, which helps increase the number of our tourists. In 2017-2018, more than 9.3 thousand Ukrainians visited Brazil. The most popular destinations are Rio de Janeiro, Florianopolis, Buzios, Foz do Iguacu, Sao Paulo, the Amazon, and El Salvador,” said Tronenko.
