Sergiy Korsunsky, Ambassador of Ukraine to Japan: “Today 35 Japan universities opened their doors to Ukrainian students”

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Japan Sergiy Korsunsky is one of the most experienced Ukrainian diplomats with an impressive background (the USA, Turkey, Israel), a well-known expert on geopolitical issues, as well as innovations and education (Doctor of Science in Physics and Mathematics). We asked Mr. Korsunsky about Asia-Pacific priorities for Ukraine, support during the full-scale invasion by Japan, cooperation and partnership in tech and science spheres, and the future of Ukrainian innovations.


  • In some areas, particularly in the broad spectrum of IT applications, Ukraine is ahead of Japan. But IT is not the only area. In dozens of Japanese universities, we have Ukrainian researchers in biotechnologies, new materials, space explorations, linguists, robotics, etc.
  • Russian hackers have attacked Ukraine for years, and we learned a lot about how to protect our Governmental services and business environment in this global cyber war.
  • The creation of the National Science Fund, and the other is the Ukrainian Startup Fund. This is how the tech world should work… in considering the new future of Ukraine, we must strongly support the R&D sphere and invest in education and research facilities.
