UWC delegation in Washington, D.C.: NATO Summit Day 2 highlights

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) delegation, consisting of UWC President Paul Grod; Andriy Futey, UWC Vice President and President of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA); Marta Farion, UWC Vice President for North America and Vice President of the UCCA; and Michael Sawkiw, Jr., Executive Vice President of the UCCA and Director of the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS) in Washington, D.C., continues its work in Washington, D.C. as part of public and expert events taking place on the sidelines of the NATO Summit.

The UWC leadership participated in a NATO Public Forum. The event brought together world leaders, leading experts, diplomats, and public figures to discuss the future of the Alliance and the challenges facing the Euro-Atlantic community.

The conference, organized by the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA in collaboration with the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, addressed the necessity of advancing Ukrainian studies in leading academic institutions worldwide. Participants included Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Iryna Borovets, and the UWC delegation. Participants announced an initiative to establish a Global Coalition for the Advancement of Ukrainian Studies following the event.

In his address to Ukrainian communities from the NATO Summit, UWC President Paul Grod emphasized the critical role of the global Ukrainian community in actively collaborating with civil society, supporters of Ukraine, and voters to communicate the realities of Russia’s war against Ukraine. He stressed that only NATO membership could ensure long-term peace and security for Ukraine.

“It is our duty. Each of us is an ambassador of Ukraine and must do everything possible to achieve high public support for Ukraine. Together, we will prevail. Slava Ukraini,” Paul Grod declared.

Earlier, it was reported that NATO leaders unanimously supported the Alliance’s new rhetoric regarding Ukraine’s future membership in the military-political bloc, according to a decision at the NATO Summit in Washington, D.C.
