The UWC Mission is also closely cooperating with the observation mission of the UWC member organization – Ukrainian Congress Committee of America with 78 short-term observers. Together, the two missions have deployed 297 short term observers.
122 long-term observers from 28 countries with the UWC Mission are also continuing their monitoring of Western media for any evidence of disinformation on the election.
