Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kostiantyn Hryschenko on Feb. 15 signed an agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the U.S. government on cooperation in fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS in 2011-2015. "The document defines the main areas of cooperation between the two countries in preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS in Ukraine, as the situation with the disease has seriously worsened in recent years, despite the efforts by our state," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry's press service reported on Wednesday.

A signing ceremony for the agreement took place at the Embassy of Ukraine in the U.S.
