On April 12th, 2024 CUCC President Zenon Potichny had the distinct honor of meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky, as part of the Ukrainian World Congress – Свiтовий Конґрес Українців delegation.

The dialogue centered around the profound impact Ukrainian World Congress, its member organizations like Canada-Ukraine Chamber of Commerce and the influential Ukrainian diaspora around the world have on rallying international support and mobilizing resources for Ukraine’s pursuit of freedom and democracy. The UWC delegation and President Zelenskyy discussed the promotion of President Zelenskyy’s Peace Formula and Ukraine’s accession to NATO and the European Union. Discussions also covered the Ukrainian diaspora’s role in securing victory and rebuilding Ukraine, and a strong global Ukrainian community abroad.

UWC President Paul Grod outlined key initiatives of the Ukrainian World Congress to President Zelenskyy, including the #Unite With Ukraine and the Energize Ukraine initiative to support and rebuild damaged Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

Since February 2022, the UWC’s groundbreaking initiative, #UniteWithUkraine, has emerged as a beacon of solidarity, amassing over $55 million in donations from benefactors spanning across more than 70 nations. These funds stand as a testament to the unwavering commitment of global citizens towards bolstering the Territorial Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and fortifying other critical Ukrainian security apparatuses.
