Ukraine welcomes opening of Vietnam painting exhibition

VOV.VN - A painting exhibition showcasing Vietnam recently opened in Ukraine to mark the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

In his opening speech at the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Hong Thach emphasised that the organisation of the exhibition demonstrates the positive development of the close ties of friendship, despite enduring numerous difficulties.

The exhibition also conveys the enthusiastic support that exists for Ukrainian friends of the embassy's operations, helping to promote mutual understanding and co-operation, he said.

In response, Konstantin Chernyavsky, head of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine, highlighted the initiative of the Vietnamese Embassy in inviting various Ukrainian artists to draw the Vietnamese landscape and its people, noting that the paintings serve to give Ukraine people greater insights into Vietnam through sketches of their native painters.

Sharing this perspective, Andrei Sheketa, acting chairman of the Zarkapatia Oblast Council, underscored the importance of the exhibition in broadening his knowledge about the country, adding that he would introduce the people of Zakarpatia to works on show in the future.

At the ceremony, a number of representatives from several Ukrainian social organisations also applauded co-operation with the Vietnamese Embassy as part of efforts to help the two peoples learn more about each other through the implementation of joint cultural projects.

Ambassador Thach later awarded certificates of merit to Zakapatia painters who submitted pieces to the exhibition, as well as individuals who actively contributed to hosting the event.
