What does Biden's Presidency mean for Ukraine?

Former Presidents such as Petro Poroshenko have been calling Joe Biden's victory a "blessing." In fact, he has knowledge of Ukraine that surpasses all other U.S. leaders. However, we must all take a closer look to see what his Presidency really means for Ukraine.

Although Ukraine has enjoyed bipartisan support from the US, analysts predict an improvement of ties under Biden.

What can Ukraine expect from the U.S. election results?

As the United States grapples with the question concerning who will win the presidential election, Kyiv Post reporter, Volodymyr Ohryzko, reflects on what Ukraine can expect.

Whatever the results may be, you can count on F.O.U.N to continue doing its diligent work in publishing recommendations for U.S. assistance to Ukraine. You can view its recommendations for the year 2020 here:

Although personalities do play a role in history, Ukraine shouldn’t worry about them. Neither Trump nor Biden – whoever wins the U.S. presidential election – will be able to make a U-turn in relations with Ukraine. That’s because the change of the country’s course depends not only on the p...

Your contributions also sponsor new programs!

Katherine Sorenson Trust has decided to donate $50,000 to assist Orphans in Western Ukraine through the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation.

In October and November 2019, the Foundation conducted an assessment trip to Western Ukraine to report and recommend strategies targeting assistance that is most needed and most effective for orphans. Much of the aid is anticipated to provide youth with “life and vocational skill-sets.”

We hope that this new humanitarian and educational assistance project will have a transformative impact on the lives of Ukrainian youth. Most importantly, we hope this unique legacy gift will inspire you to generously support USUF.

The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation Story ...

The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation (USUF) is a strategic “do tank,” headquartered in Washington, D.C., with a permanent presence working on the ground in Ukraine since 1991. From its inception, the Foundation, a non–governmental, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, initiated programs focused on enhancing Ukraine’s ability to become a cornerstone of regional stability and a full member of the community of nations. The work at the Foundation is aimed at supporting the development of democracy, a free-market economy and human rights in Ukraine, and the strategic partnership between the U.S. and Ukraine. Its programs have focused on the areas of democracy, economic development, education/training, health, humanitarian aid, and national security policy.

Today, the Friends of Ukraine Network (FOUN), the Biotech Initiative, and Leadership Development are among the critical activities of the Foundation.

USUF also partners with the Kyiv-based Pylyp Orlyk Institute for Democracy to help the people of Ukraine explore and recapture their democratic roots and aspirations. Supporting Ukraine’s institutional capacity and civil society’s preeminent role in Ukraine’s development remains a priority. Our success is made possible by the cooperation and financial support from a broad base of individuals and organizations in the United States, Ukraine, and around the world.

Пані та Панове! Друзі та Подруги! Шановна Українська Громадо! Наша скромна твірня @OFF Laboratory продовжує працювати на 2-гою частиною документальної стрічки про одного з найвизначніших Українських поетів ХХ століття — Олега Лишегу. Стрічка так і називається: «Lysheha». Першу частину стрічки нам вдалося презентувати на день народження цього непересічного поета, драматурга та перекладача — тобто 30 жовтня. Запрошуємо її переглянути за цією ланкою: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gH4IRkvfX1Q На жаль, на завершення 1-ї частини фільму «Lysheha» нам вдалося зібрати лише близько половини необхідної суми, але ми дотрималися взятої на себе обіцянки, і таки оприлюднили цю частину саме 30 жовтня! І ми продовжуємо працювати на «Лишегою» далі. Другу частину відео життєпису Олега Лишеги ми хочемо доробити й представити 17 грудня 2020 року — до чергових роковин: до дня смерти Мистця. Накручування (зйомки) відбуваються в Україні та США. Наша невеличка творча спіла працює цілодобово, аби встигнути це здійснити до оголошеної дати: залишається буквально кілька тижнів.... Ми не втомлюємося дякувати всім, хто вже долучився своїм внеском до 1-ї частини стрічки «Lysheha»! Але нам досі потрібна ваша допомога... Ціна питання порівняно невеличка — $2000. Самі розумієте: така стрічка — це не якась осоружна попсня, це не скандальна політична одноденка, це не тупі цицьки-пуцьки, зрештою — це явно НЕ комерційний проєкт, здатний підтягнути під себе бізнесових спонсорів! Тому й звертаємося до Небайдужих! Збираємо толокою! Сума пожертви — значення не має: будемо вдячні за будь-який внесок! Тож Підіймаймо і Тримаймо Українську Культуру Разом!

Впродовж останніх п’яти років ми працювали над фільмом власними силами й коштами. Наступні 3 тижні ми інтенсивно працюватимемо, щоб завершити другу частину фільму до роковин смерті Олега — 17 грудня. Для цього нам дуууже потрібна ваша фінансова допомога. Ціна питання — $2000, яка необхідна на: — дознімання і опрацювання нових інтерв'ю та відео спогадів про Поета — створення і запис музики, якою займається чудовий композитор Андрій Орел; — монтаж, постпродакшн — організацію онлайн-прем’єри та, якщо це буде можливим — офлайн.

Spare a minute of your time to get word "Holodomor" included in major English dictionaries. This will help to spread the knowledge about Holodomor, facilitate the recognition of Holodomor as genocide and prevent such atrocities from happening again. https://www.facebook.com/uuarc/posts/3232634343441456
Шановні українці! Запрошую вас підписати петицію щодо включення слова "Голодомор" в словники англійської мови. Кожен підпис важливий, так ми допоможемо підвищити обізнаність про Голодомор, і таким чином збільшимо число країн, які визнають його актом геноциду. Це сприятиме розкриттю правди про сучасні геноциди, що продовжують скоюватися у світі.
