The Ukrainian World Congress is collaborating as an informational partner. Additionally, the organizers have announced a comprehensive schedule of related initiatives.

At the first meeting, experts will discuss the environmental dimension of Russian war crimes and the aftermath of the Russian brutal attack on the Kakhovka HPP last June.

The project’s primary objective is to engage in conversations about critical aspects of international law in the context of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

The Ukrainian World Congress is set to play a pivotal part in facilitating these discussions by distributing webinar resources, connecting Ukrainian communities globally, enhancing dialogue between the National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” and the Ukrainian diaspora, and creating a network centered around these vital conversations.
