Abstract

The article analyzes the state policy towards foreign Ukrainians on the basis of its implemen- tation regarding the Ukrainian minority in Romania.

An overview of the situation of the Ukrainian diaspora and the main identification trends characteristic of the Ukrainian community of Romanian society, as well as the provision of their rights and needs for the preservation of their own ethno-cultural identity have been carried out.

The article states that despite the developed contractual basis of the Ukrainian-Romanian relations, the state of providing the educational, cultural and information needs of the Ukrainian diaspora in Romania, the Ukrainian diaspora undergoes significant assimilation processes. The author, in particular, draws attention to the ineffectiveness of the policy of the Ukrainian side in meeting the needs of the Ukrainian diaspora in the bilateral Ukrainian-Romanian relations. The article draws attention to the fact that to a large extent the provision of the rights of the ethnic community depends on the activity of its social activity. Thus, the effectiveness of social activity of the Ukrainian diaspora, at one time, was negatively impacted by internal disputes between the public elite of Ukrainians in Romania. Despite the current positive dynamics in the activities of the public representation of Ukrainian activities due to the change of leadership of the Union of Ukrainians in Romania, consolidation and support of the public sector of foreign Ukrainians in Romania in particular should remain one of the basic priorities of state policy in this area.

It is noted that the intensification of Ukrainian-Romanian relations since 2014 greatly creates favorable conditions for improving the effectiveness of the state policy towards the Ukrainian diaspora in Romania. Proposed measures to improve the process of its formation and implementation.
