The article analyzes the Polish experience of using the potential of “soft power” and its instruments in the context of post-socialist transformation of society. The author stresses on the changes of the foreign policy preferences since the political party “Law and Justice” has come to power in Poland and underlines the impact of its activities on the international image of the state. The instruments of “soft power” of Poland are characterized, myths and stereotypes in Polish-Ukrainian relations are described. The author analyzes the main features of highlighting the information and news about Poland in the Ukrainian printed media and evaluates the sociological data concerning Ukrainians’ attitude towards Poland and Poles. In addition in the paper Polish “soft power” is contradistinguished to the Russian “soft power” in the context of its presence in Ukraine today.
