    The Chair for Hellenistics and the Centre of Greek Studies and Culture were founded in 1999. The Centre was named after a well-known Ukrainian classicist, prof. Andriy Biletskiy, who was the first, together with Tatiana Tsernissova, to teach Modern Greek in 1958. Andriy Biletskiy wrote the concise grammar of Modern Greek, which is included in the Greek-Russian Dictionary published in Moscow in 1950. The first scholars studying the Greek dialect of the inhabitants of the regions of the Azofic sea (rumeiki), together with their students, were the first to introduce the Ukrainian people to the works of Modern Greek writers (N. Kazantzakis, A. Samarakis, G. Ritsos and others were translated into Ukrainian during the 1060s) and the Greek people to the Ukrainian culture (e.g., the known Ukrainian poet Taras Shevtsenko was translated into Greek).
    Modern Greek has been offered at the Institute of Philology, the Institute for Foreign Relations, and the School of Journalism, as a primary or secondary foreign language, since 1993. The graduates of the Institute of Philology are awarded the degree of philologist, teacher of Modern Greek and another foreign language (English, German) and literature, or of the interpreter/translator of two foreign languages (usually English-Greek). Students have a choice to enroll in the postgraduate courses or simply learn the language. Workshops and conferences of Greek interest are held every two years.
    Important publications: the first Greek-Ukrainian Dictionary (2003).
    An organized library has been compiled with books donated by Andriy Biletskiy, the Jason Project (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), the University of Athens, and other Greek institutions.
    Students have the opportunity to continue with postgraduate studies. Courses are also provided to interested students not studying at the Centre.
    The Centre also organizes the Pan-Ukrainian contest for the best translation of a Greek literary work for Greek-speaking University students from all over the country.
    Faculty: Nina Klimenko, Alexander Ponomariv, Eugenie Chernukhin, Svitlana Perepliotchykova, Andrey Savenko, Irina Titarenko, Tahisia Poushkar.
