Washington, D.C. -- As we remember and honor a somber milestone – the second anniversary of the ongoing Russia’s war in Ukraine – our thoughts turn to the resilience and unwavering spirit of the Ukrainian people. The U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC) www.USUBC.org stands firm in its commitment to supporting a free, independent, and democratic Ukraine.

In light of the current situation, now, more than ever, Ukraine needs our collective assistance to continue its fight for sovereignty and freedom. We believe that through our concerted efforts, together can make a significant difference.

Current Initiatives - How Your Support Can Make a Difference

The UFF is currently focused on two critical initiatives that provide immediate aid to the most vulnerable areas in Eastern Ukraine:

  1. Military Training Reform: Enhancing the capabilities of Ukraine's defenders through comprehensive training programs developed with the Ministry of Defense and General Staff.  While many US companies are providing hardware to help Ukraine, UFF is working to ensure it’s being properly and effectively used.
  2. Drones for Defenders: Supplying advanced drone technology to ensure the safety of those on the front lines.
