Vladyslav Korniienko commented: "It is the international component that is becoming perhaps the most important aspect of the National Academy of Arts today, since the cultural and artistic features of Ukraine have proved to be of the foremost interest to the international community, and precisely during the period of a full-scale invasion."
"The range of tasks in the international activities of our Academy is stipulated by the fact that even under the statutory conditions, the Academy implements various international projects, carries out international cooperation, establishes foreign economic relations and conducts international scientific and artistic activities in order to integrate Ukrainian art and science into the world scientific and artistic space with the aim of ensuring and protecting the national interests of Ukraine," Vladyslav Korniienko continued.
He added that the international partners of the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine are the Academy of Sciences and Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Berlin Academy of Arts, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and the Alliance of European Academies.
