Observations of GPS satellites at permanent stations located in Ukraine and in the Eastern Europe were reprocessed with the Bernese GPS Software ver. 5.0 using new models and processing procedures adopted by the International GNSS Service since GPS week 1400. Coordinates of the GPS stations for GPS weeks 1236–1399 were determined. To estimate the quality of the solution obtained, its comparison with the combined solutions obtained during the reprocessing campaigns of the International GNSS Service and European Permanent GNSS Network was performed
