"President of Ukraine Yanukovych will lay a wreath at the Slavín Memorial to pay tribute to the memory of heroes who died in Slovakia during World War II. He will also have a presentation at the Slovak-Ukrainian Economic Forum," the Embassy of Ukraine said in a press release. During the visit, several bilateral interstate treaties are to be signed, as well as inter-regional agreements on cooperation between regions of both countries.

In the second half of 2011, several Slovak representatives plan to visit Ukraine: Prime Minister Radičová, Foreign Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda as well as Labour Minister Jozef Mihál have all scheduled visits to Slovakia's eastern neighbour.
