The bookshelf was opened as part of the project initiated by the First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the Ministry of Culure and Information Policy of Ukraine and Ukrainian Book Institute.


“The representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affaird of Norway, the mayor of Longyear city, library director, Ukrainians who have found refuge there and Norwegians curious about Ukraine and Ukrainian language and culture as well as the Ambassadors of other countries – all welcomed the first Ukrainian bookshelf in Svalbard,” goes in the post.


The visitors also discussed the possibility of expanding the project and purchase of new books and promotion of Ukrainian culture.


“It is important now for Ukrainian book to appear anywhere where there are Ukrainians. It is a bridge that connects their homeland and a temporary home,” points out Olena Zelenska.


Earlier this year Ukrainian books appeared in the National Norwegian Library.


As is known Olena Zelenska has donated new Ukrainian books to the Main Library of Masovian Voivodeship (Province) in Warsaw.
