Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ukraine
Ukraine as one of the largest European countries is an extremely important part of Czech foreign policy. The main attention is paid to political, trade and economic cooperation between the two countries. Diplomatic ties at the embassy level between the two countries were established on 1.1.1993.
The location of Ukraine on the eastern borders of NATO and the enlarged European Union determines its place in the European security architecture. In asserting independence and prosperity in Ukraine, the Czech Republic sees its contribution to strengthening security and stability in Central Europe. And integration into European structures is a strategic priority of Ukraine's foreign policy. Ukraine's entry into European structures is a key to maintaining this positive trend. The Czech Republic participates in the activities of the V4 group of partners, which are the immediate neighbors of Ukraine, whose purpose is to eliminate the adverse effects of EU enlargement on Ukraine. The integration of Ukraine into the integration processes in Europe is also a contribution to the building of civil society and the strengthening of human rights and civil liberties,
The Czech Republic pays systematic attention to Czech communities in Ukraine. Despite the limited funds, it is possible to support a few investment measures of compatriot societies. Interest in the study of the Czech language has also increased.
The Czech Republic has long been helping Ukraine for its further development.
