UWC President meets with Ukraine’s Ambassador to US

Paul Grod, the President of the Ukrainian World Congress, held a fruitful meeting with Oksana Markarova, Ukraine’s Ambassador to the United States, in Washington, D.C. 

Thank you to Ambassador Markarova for her effective leadership and advocacy for Ukraine during this critical time.  Impactful meeting to map out future cooperation with the Ukrainian World Congress,” the UWC President said.

The parties discussed efforts to support the interests of Ukraine in the international arena, advocacy activities of the Ukrainian community, as well as preparations for commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor of 1932-1933.

The Embassy of Ukraine in the USA, together with the US National Committee for the Recognition of the Holodomor as Genocide, is actively working to expand the geography of recognition of the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people. Recently, three more American states – Washington, Maryland, and Arizona – recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people.

In this context, the Ambassador of Ukraine to the USA also met with Michael Sawkiw, a UWC Board of Directors member and Vice President of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA).

The parties discussed joint actions and agreed on plans to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor, as well as further recognition of the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people.

We invite the Ukrainian community in all states to join the campaign to honor the memory of the Holodomor victims by organizing educational events about the terrible crime of the Soviet regime against Ukrainians committed 90 years ago,” Markarova wrote earlier. In total, 31 American states have already issued relevant proclamations recognizing the Holodomor as genocide.

Diplomatic representatives Denys Sienik and Oresta Starak also took part in the meeting.
