his thesis project, under the supervision of Mr. Daniel Petit (ENS), is part of his current research after a first PhD in Slavic linguistics at Kyiv University, defended in 2016. As a refugee in France since 2022, he intends to prepare a new PhD on a different subject, focusing on the modern Greek dialects of Azov (Ukraine), known as Roumekou dialects. His learning of Modern Greek began in 2009, when he chose it as an elective course at Kyiv National University-Mohyla Academy. At the same time, he was intensively learning French for three years and Turkish for a year. In 2011, he also studied at the University of Thessaloniki (Greece) as part of the Jason program for Greek language studies. In 2013, he obtained my master's degree in comparative literature at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy National University (Kyiv, Ukraine) on the following topic: Reception of ancient Greek tragedy in the theater of Slavic modernism (Lesia Ukrainka, Stanislaw Wyspianski, Innokentiy Annenskiy). In 2016, he defended his doctoral thesis entitled Ukrainian etymological Lexicography : theory, history and practice at the Taras Shevchenko National University in Kiev. His doctoral thesis entitled Ukrainian Etymological Lexicography : Theory, History and Practice. At the time the war in Ukraine began, he was preparing his habilitation thesis on the comparative poetics of Slavic folklore. Earlier, in the summer of 2021, he had begun collecting unpublished documents on the Greek dialects of Azov from the Kiev archives.
