  1. "Building resilient Ukraine: promoting the Ukrainian agenda in Europe"
    International Center for Defense and Security (Estonia)
  2. "Ukraine. Europe 1921-1939: Reviews" in "New Eastern Europe" and "Nowa Europa Wschodnia"

For the first open call of the Lysiak-Rudnytsky Programme, the Ukrainian Institute has received 56 applications from 15 countries (Austria, Australia, Belarus, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Estonia, Finland, France, Poland, Spain, the U.S.A., the United Kingdom).

The applicants submitted the projects in music, history, literature, film, ethnography, visual arts, etc.

"We received more applications than we expected. The number of applications proves that the Lysiak-Rudnytsky Programme is a timely and needed programme. Each project promotes the Ukrainian agenda in Europe and North America in a certain way. Although we have chosen eight projects, the selection process was highly competitive. It makes us optimistic about the future of the Programme" — notes Oleksandra Gaidai, programme manager of Academic Programmes of the Ukrainian Institute.

The Lysiak-Rudnytsky Ukrainian Studies is a long-term programme of the Ukrainian Institute devoted to promotion of the Ukrainian Studies. The Programme is committed to deepen public understanding of Ukraine's past and present by supporting projects in cultural, educational, and research institutions abroad.
