He particularly noted works produced by Serhiy Bratkov. According to the Vice-PM, they symbolize "hymn to Ukraine, love and life".

The President of the Academy of Arts of Ukraine, Andriy Chebykin, while delivering speech at the opening of the Ukrainian pavilion, pointed out that Ukraine's participation in Biennale 2007 "has consolidated the State's support with private initiative, and it was a very important fact that would facilitate development of contemporary art in Ukraine". In his comments about "A Poem about an Inland Sea" show the President of the Academy of Arts of Ukraine said that "through the exhibition we did not put a question but we have answered it in a clear voice. "We are Ukrainians! What else matters?"
