After the disintegration of the USSR, Ukrainian physicists suffered from the changed situation in the country and insufficient funding. Ukraine is now recovering, and participates actively in LHC experiments. In spite of a long uncertain period with several changes in the leadership of the Ministry of Science, Ukrainian collaborators have provided good contributions to CMS (through JINR), ALICE and LHCb.
There has recently been an improvement in governmental support, and there is visible scientific and official interest in expanding and strengthening Ukrainian co-operation with CERN. A new Protocol to the 1993 Co-operation Agreement is being discussed now with Ukrainian physicists and authorities.
Grid technology is developing fast in Ukraine, thanks to the support of the Academy of Sciences, which signed in 2006 the MoU for WLCG. There is some Ukrainian interest in collaboration on accelerator R&D, with a developing involvement in the R&D for CLIC/CTF3.
