Recently in Kyiv it was held the XIII International Scientific Seminar “Ukrainian paths of St. Petersburg”, which was attended by Valentyna Kravchenko, associate professor of the Department of Ukrainian literature and Lesya Korol, the postgraduate student of the same department (supervisor is Professor Vitaliy Shevchenko).

Seven consecutive years the seminar in St. Petersburg was held traditionally under the leadership of its founder Tetyana Lebedynska, PhD., professor, member of the National Union of Writers of Ukraine. The meeting of this year's seminar took place at the Academy of Advocacy of Ukraine. The organizers also were St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University, Institute of International Educational Programs, Institute of Literature of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, University “Eastern European Slavic University” and the National Museum of Taras Shevchenko.
Welcoming speech to the participants was delivered by Tetyana Varfolomeyeva, the rector of the Academy of Advocacy. Also the colleagues were welcomed by Mykola Rudko, the General Consul of the General Consulate of Ukraine in St. Petersburg in 2004-2009. The folk group “Chumaky” also greeted everyone. The members of this folk group performed folk songs to the words of Taras Shevchenko.
Mykola Sulyma, Doctor of Philological Sciences, corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Deputy Director of the T.G. Shevchenko Institute of Literature of the NAS of Ukraine was also invited to the seminar. The report “Mykhail Semenko: St. Petersburg – Leningrad” the researcher analyzed the biographies of little-known facts futurist related with North Palmyra.
The organizer of this year's seminar, Tetyana Kononchuk, professor, the Head of the Department of Ukrainian Philology and Social Sciences of Ukrainian Academy of Advocacy, made the report “Russian small prose and science about the Ukrainian being in the 30s of the XX century”. The researcher highlighted the Holodomor, comparing the stories “Bread for the dog” written by V. Tendryakova and the “Sparrow” (2005) written by the modern author A. Illichevsky. Tetyana Chuyko, Deputy Director of Research of the Taras Shevchenko National Museum, presented the report “The image of St. Petersburg in painting and graphic art of the twentieth century” on Shevchenko's theme, illustrated with reproductions.
The report of Valentyna Kravchenko “The Lukashevich in the works of Taras Shevchenko” aroused the great interest of the audience, because it has been quite a bit developed. It’s crucial that on the eve of the 200th anniversary of Taras Shevchenko many speakers have devoted their scientific research just the figure of the great poet. In her speech, Lesya Korol spoke about the model of the historical novel “No right for return” and the novel-essay “Mannerheim Line” of V. Chemerys.
The participants of the International Seminar agreed that the Ukrainian people had a significant impact on the cultural life of St. Petersburg, and therefore the issue chosen for discussion certainly has prospects for further development.
