in Armenia, director of Ukrainian institute on analysis and management
Ruslan Bortnyk told Analitika.at.ua.
He congratulated Ukrainians and Armenians with such a significant
anniversary – the 95th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic
“However, the relationship between our two nations is much older,
and has at least a thousand-year history,” he emphasized.
Recalling that “Union of Armenians of Ukraine” NGO became the first
public organization in Ukraine, which was included in the register of
transparency of the EU, Bortnyk noted that this is not only a great
achievement of the organization’s leadership, but also evidence of
the highest level of cooperation between the Ukrainians and Armenians
in their joint efforts to achieve European living standards and the
development of civil society.
He noted considerable potential of Ukrainian-Armenian intergovernmental
and economic relations.
“Trade turnover between the two countries last year amounted to
about $230 million and may be increased at least four times due to
agricultural products, Ukrainian machine-building, development of
transport networks, and tourism,” he said.
