Attention to the practical dimension is the reason that a whole range of various undertakings is shown. These undertakings can be conducted in a situation when regions, counties, communes or various institutions show interest in cooperation.

Poland – at the onset of the changes in its internal policy – has established the basis for neighbourhood relations by concluding treaties of good neighbourship with the neighbouring countries. The existing borders have been accepted in these treaties, the mutual friendship has been emphasized and the main directions of the co-operation (economic, cultural and scientific) have been listed.

As soon as autumn 2004, as a part of government program “Polish Year in Ukraine, Ukrainian Year in Poland” in Vinnytsia, a “Regional Cultural-Economic Program of Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship in Vinnytsia Oblast”, consisting of a Presentation of the Region and the Economic Mission, was carried out. One of the results of the program was the establishment of cooperation between more cities and communes, e.g. between Busko-Zdrój and Chmielnik commune, Morawica and Baławianka commune, Zagnańsk and Strzyżawka commune and Piekoszów and Stadnica commune. At the moment, over 30 local self-governments of the Vinnytsia and Świętokrzyski regions have signed agreements on cooperation. For more, see: A.

On 23rd and 24th of June, 1999, a Polish-Ukrainian Self-Government Forum was held, with participation of the presidents of Ukraine and the Republic of Poland – Leonid Kuchma and Aleksander Kwaśniewski. Among the representatives of Ukraine was a delegation from Vinnytsia.

As a result of the actions taken by the authorities of Vinnytsia, Polish community organizations, with the support of Kielce self-government (on September 28, 2006 the City Council of Kielce adopted the resolution “Concerning the Minister of Foreign Affairs' decision”, which allowed for the consulate of the Republic of Poland to be created in Vinnytsia), Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs agreed to the creation of Consular Information Point in Vinnytsia. The Information Point started its activity on March 20, 2007.

The instructions were part of the “Self-government Tigers of Europe” project, financed with the resources of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as a part of the Polish international aid program for 2008. Kielce received an over 100.000 PLN subsidy for development and intensification of the existing relations with the Ukrainian partner, through sharing of good practices developed in the Kielce self-government, among others.

A few months later – on November 16, 2009, a transport with medicine and surgical masks set out for Ukraine. These gifts were addressed to the Vinnytsia Oblast Children's Clinical Hospital.
