Since January 2007 Ukraine has a law mandating open access to publicly funded researches. It was widely supported by most of the Parliament members. And it is already the second parliamentary inquiry mandating the Cabinet of Ministers to take actions on creating favorable conditions for developing open access repositories in archives, libraries, museums, scientific and research institutions with open access condition to state funded researches. And for the second time the implementation of this law was interrupted by the political crises. Governmental institutions are still the unique donors of research and development in Ukraine. This is why a law mandating open access to publicly funded research plays a crucial role in open access initiatives. Delays with implementation of this law cause delays in the development of open access institutional repositories. (all in Ukrainian - Decree of the Parliament of Ukraine "On Recommendations of parliamentary hearings on developing information society in Ukraine: http://zakon.rada.gov.ua/cgi-bin/laws/main.cgi?nreg=3175%2D15 The Law of Ukraine On the principles of developing information society in Ukraine for 2007-20015 (Закон України "Про Основні засади розвитку інформаційного суспільства в Україні на 2007-2015 роки") at www.rada.gov.ua)
