About us

The German-Ukrainian Bureau is an expert company focused on research and strategic advisory to enhance German-Ukrainian relations at business, civil society, and the state levels. 

Since the full-scale Russian invasion, the German-Ukrainian relations have reached a new intensity. Nevertheless, a better understanding and analysis of each other is necessary to realize the full potential of the partnership. We firmly believe that investing in Ukraine, its people, society, and economy now, during the war, and after the victory offers lucrative opportunities for expanding partnerships with a country on track to join the European Union.

Our team deeply understands the factors influencing German and European relations with Ukraine.

The Bureau and its founding experts have long experience working with governments, donors, non-profits, media, and businesses.

Our values are the cross-cutting element of our business:


Passion for German-Ukrainian relations: every action we take contributes to advancing bilateral relations.


Professionality: we provide high-quality services.


High integrity: we do believe in democracy, the rule of law, and human rights. We adhere to all rules and regulations. We select customers, partners, and team members according to our mission and values.


Respect: we respect each other and all stakeholders. We keep our promises. We are honest. We do not discriminate


Openness: to new ideas and other opinions. We practice constructive dialogue. We are family and pet-friendly.
