Chapter

Abstract

One of the realities of the today’s political life in Ukraine is its aspirations for European integration. In order to make progress towards this goal, certain changes in political approaches to the issue must be made in the country, but also, there must be close cooperation with EU member states, and in particular with Ukraine’s neighbouring states. Among those states, the Republic of Poland holds one of the most important places. The nature of the Ukrainian-Polish relations is multifaceted and ambiguous. This chapter deals with issues related to the establishment and development of bilateral relations and cooperation between Ukraine and Poland since the 1990s. The development of a regulatory and legal framework for cooperation between them is outlined, and the formation of that framework is divided into periods. This chapter focuses on areas of Ukrainian and Polish cooperation that include the economy, politics, science and culture.
