At the GNSS data analysis centre of the Main Astronomical Observatory NAS of Ukraine crustal strain were obtained with the use method of triangles, whose vertices are the GNSS stations. Crustal strain estimations was carried out using the GPS Triangle Strain Calculator, developed by UNAVCO software.

Keywords: crustal strain, GNSS data analysis, method of triangles, movements of GNSS stations
