Centre for Croatian language and culture set up at Kyiv University

ZAGREB, 9 Dec (Hina) – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković on Wednesday formally opened the Centre of the Croatian language and culture at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, underscoring that the centre will continue witnessing the closeness of the Croatian and Ukrainian nations.

Addressing the university’s dean and students, the visiting Croatian Prime Minister said that it was pleasure for him to participate in the opening of the centre that would particularly witness the closeness and similarities of the Croatian and Ukrainian languages.

He recalled that the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb also had a Ukrainian language department.

In this way we build our friendship, we develop our relations and strengthen the status of the Ukrainian minority in Croatia and the status of Croats living in Ukraine, said Plenković.

During today’s ceremony, Croatia donated about a hundred books for the centre.

Plenković said that he was looking forward to the continuation of cooperation and younger generations fostering the Croatian and Ukrainian relations.

On Thursday, the Croatian premier travels to Lviv.
