Ukraine and Kenya are set to take their relations to the next level as a Ukrainian delegation prepares to visit Nairobi next week, heralding a new era of cooperation between the two countries.

The delegation, representing Ukraine’s civil, academic, cultural and political communities will be led by Lesia Vasylenko, a Ukrainian Parliamentarian.

“Kenya and Ukraine share the same values of democracy and belief in the right to self-determination, as well as both being hustler nations with big futures ahead of us,” Vasylenko, member of Ukraine’s parliament said.

Common values, Vasylenko said, make the two countries natural partners.

“I hope my visit to Kenya will open up a host of new opportunities,” the MP said.

Building on the success of previous delegations to Kenya, Ukrainian parliamentary, academic, business and cultural leaders are now set to visit Nairobi to deepen relations and seek new opportunities for partnerships.  The delegation will be in Nairobi from February 5 to 10.

A particular focus for the delegation will be on building links between the Ukrainian and Kenyan parliaments.

Vasylenko will meet senior Kenyan parliamentarians, including National Assembly speaker Moses Wetangula to discuss how the two parliaments can work more closely.  “Africa has always looked to Kenya for leadership, making Kenya a crucial partner for Ukraine as we look to strengthen our relationships on the continent,” Vasylenko said.
