As Ukraine’s recovery and transformation, and Ukraine and Moldova’s accession to the EU will be in the focus of the 11th Danube Participation Day and the 13th Annual Forum of the EUSDR in Vienna in June 2024, the preparation of a message to these major annual events, bringing together various actors of the Danube Region Strategy, has become another important aim of the 4th NPD Ukraine.

Prospects for the development of Ukrainian-Chinese relations in the south of Odessa region

Izmail State University of Humanities hosted a meeting of the scientific seminar «Prospects for the development of Ukrainian-Chinese relations: economics and education (regional aspect)», during which two sections were organized.


The main speaker during the meeting of the first section was the director of the center for regional development of the Ukrainian Danube Region, candidate of Geographical Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Business and Tourism Management of the University Vyacheslav Todorov. He introduced the participants to the peculiarities of accelerated economic growth and the transformation of the People’s Republic of China into the second economy of the world, as well as the peculiarities of its domestic and foreign policy. He focused on the peculiarities of the country’s scientific and technological progress, primarily due to the effective development of Free Economic Zones and the prospects for restoring the «Great Silk Road». Regarding the prospects for the implementation of the latest Logistics Project «East – West», participants and experts of the scientific seminar noted that the south of the Odessa region has a favorable geographical location, because it is located at the intersection of the main (southern) historical route of the territories of modern countries – India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Turkey and European countries, and the northern route – through the territory of Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine. Exit to the Trans-European artery – the Danube River provides communication with the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and determines the strategic importance of this region as a priority link in the system of European transport corridors. The south-western part of the Odessa region (between the Danube and Dniester Rivers) is unique, one of the most multiethnic regions in Europe.

The speech by Tetiana Stanieva, a graduate of our university in 2022, at the Association of European Border Regions conference
Tetiana Stanieva

“Good morning/afternoon, my name is Tetiana Stanieva. I’m from Ukraine. And it seems to me that today this is enough to understand who I am and what I feel at the moment. For now, this is more important than any of my other titles and achievements.

I didn’t plan to but before I start talking about my region, its pain, and its specifics and briefly describe the projects we are implementing there, I would like to talk to you seriously.

I will not repeat the news, but right now Putin did his next crime trying to annex our boarding region and this morning my friend died, he was a teacher, who went to the front line to defend his land. Yesterday in Dnipro region the Russian bomb killed one family, that moved from the town to the village hoping it is more safety there. And they all died except there dog which was looking for its owner on ruin of there houses. So we see there is no safety places in Ukraine. And yesterday they bombed humanitarian convoy, 28 people died, more than 50 are in the hospital. Just imagine, the same amount as we are here. And there are thousands of such stories. I want to honor the memory of all innocent Ukrainians with a moment of silence.


Sines the February 24, the heartbeat of my country stopped as Russia started dirty and unwarranted aggression.

South Ukrainian Humanitarian Hub

From the first days of the war, the administration of the Izmail State University of Humanities (ISUH) organized the work of the South Ukrainian Humanitarian Hub, which operates on the basis of our two dormitories.

The unique geographical location of Izmail and the safe situation contribute to the systematic provision of the necessary consulting and humanitarian support for potential refugees from Ukraine who transit to Moldova and Romania. We organized the provision of free accommodation, food and psychological, social, legal support for temporarily displaced persons as a result of the Russian-Ukrainian war.


They are residents of the Kyiv region, Lisichansk, Mariupol, Mykolaiv, Stakhanov, Kharkiv, Kherson. We also have an opportunity to travel to the areas of active military actions to evacuate most vulnerable civilians to Izmail and host them in ISUH’s two dormitories. Thus, during last months, we hosted 498 refugees (mostly single mothers with children including orphans whose parents had their paternal right revoked) in ISUH’s two dormitories. We expect many more refugees to flee to Izmail who would need our free help and accommodation as the military actions in south Ukraine have now intensified.
