Union of Ukrainian Associations in Spain ‘KRAI’ elects new president

The Congress of the Union of Ukrainian Associations in Spain ‘KRAI’ took place in Spain from January 19 to 21 in Bilbao. The assembly analyzed the results of joint work in recent years; among the honored guests were the UWC Second Vice President Jaroszlava Hartyányi and UWC Vice President for Southern Europe Pavlo Sadokha. Jaroszlava Hartyányi read the greetings from the UWC President, Paul Grod.

“I am glad Ukraine has strong support from Ukrainians and their friends, including the Spanish! I represented the World Federation of Ukrainian Women Organizations (​​WFUWO) and the UWC. A great event for Ukraine Unity Day! Happy Unity Day!” commented Jaroszlava Hartyányi.

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) sincerely congratulates the Ukrainian community in Spain on the successful Congress. The UWC acknowledges the dedicated, tireless work of Larysa Ponomarenko in developing Ukrainian civic life in Spain as the President of the Union of Ukrainian Associations in Spain ‘KRAI,’ whose term ended this year according to the statute.

Larysa Ponomarenko said that over the past years, ‘KRAI’ has grown from six members to seventeen and continues to expand.

“Common aspirations and boundless love for Ukraine, tireless activity, and the ability to collaborate are the keys to our growth. Meetings, discussions, joint festivals – we have become almost one family… Sincere gratitude to our moral authorities – representatives of the Ukrainian World Congress, the WFUWO, for their support and the opportunity to be with us during these days. We recently became members of these esteemed organizations,” emphasized Larysa Ponomarenko.

The UWC also congratulates Liliya Mykolayiv on her appointment as the President of the Union of Ukrainian Associations in Spain ‘KRAI,’ leading the association Con Ucrania.

In recent years, the Union of Ukrainian Associations in Spain ‘KRAI’ has developed cooperation with more than 40 Ukrainian associations within the framework of the Ukrainian platform for the activities of communities.
