Ukrainians together – the future is ours!
This year marks 50 years of the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC), the international coordinating body for Ukrainian communities in the diaspora that represents the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians with a network of member organizations and ties with Ukrainians in 53 countries.
To raise awareness of the work of the UWC, its history, present and plans for the future, in 2017 the UWC has planned a range of anniversary events in Ukraine and in the countries of the Ukrainian diaspora with the goal of engaging the participation of its network, Ukrainians in Ukraine, friends of Ukraine around the world, and the international community.
Stay tuned for detailed programs in each country.
