  2. Supporting the process of subregional integration in Central Europe, including Ukraine.
  3. Supporting dialogue and understanding between the societies of Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine by presenting, among others, positive elements in bilateral and multilateral relations.

  5. Promoting the Eastern Partnership as an important component of European eastern policy, which contributes to building political and social ties, economic and cultural relations between the European Union and the countries of the Eastern Partnership region.
  6. Popularizing knowledge as part of conference and publishing activities in the field of history, politics, culture and socio-economic affairs of the "Lublin Triangle" countries.
  7. Promoting the formula of the strategic partnership of the Three Nations within the framework of the " Lublin Triangle".
