On April 17, 2012, an exhibition of works in oil and watercolor by member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, Mr. Bohdan Kuziv, devoted to the 2012 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Ukraine and the Hellenic Republic opened at the Embassy of Ukraine to the Hellenic Republic.
Attendees of the ceremony included intellectuals, representatives of the diplomatic corps, mass media, members of the Ukrainian diaspora in Greece, as well as the public at large.
In addressing the attendees, the Ambassador of Ukraine in the Hellenic Repulic, Mr. Volodymyr Shkurov, underscored that during two decades after the establishment of diplomatic relations between Ukraine and Greece, the contacts between the two countries, that have been connected since ancient times by common pages of history, cultural and inter-human ties and the Orthodox religion, have never been clouded by any misunderstandings, but have only witnessed a stable development of cooperation in various fields, including in culture.
This is evidenced, noted the Ukrainian Ambassador, inter alia, by the fact of holding in Greece of an exhibition of paintings by Bohdan Kuziv who is known in Ukraine and abroad by the realistic and refined manner of painting.
The Head of Ukraine’s diplomatic mission familiarized the attendees with Mr. Kuziv’s creative biography and work, and wished him continued artistic success.
The exhibition will be open to the public till the end of May.
