Ukrainian Ambassador H.E. Volodymyr Tolkach hosted a reception on the occasion of the 27th anniversary of his country’s Independence Day. State Minister for National Assembly Affairs Adel Al-Kharafi was the chief guest at the function held at Marina Salwa Al Sabah Hall on 21 October. In his address to the gathering, the Ukrainian Ambassador Tolkach highlighted the anniversaries being celebrated this year, such as the 100th Anniversary of the creation of the first Ukrainian state, the 85th anniversary of the Great Famine (1932-1933) in Ukraine as well as the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Ukraine and Kuwait.

Ukraine officially declared itself an independent state on 24 August, 1991 by adopting the Act of Independence that was later approved and formalized by a referendum in December. Following the dissolution of the former Soviet Union, the presidents of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine formed the Commonwealth of Independent States on 21 December 1991.

With extensive fertile farmlands, Ukraine is one of the world’s largest grain exporters. Ukraine also has numerous tourist attractions, including mountain ranges suitable for skiing, hiking and fishing; the Black Sea coastline that is a popular summer destination; nature reserves of different ecosystems; as well as churches, castle ruins and other architectural landmarks.
