Ukraine, the Brest region in Belarus and the Lublin voivodship in
Poland. Its activities contributed to creation of adequate border
infrastructure, strengthening economic collaboration, environment
protection, establishment of close ties between local self-government
authorities, etc. A programme of common actions within this cross-border
association is aimed also to ensure free and lasting co-operation
