Ukrainian opposition leaders  to speak in U.S. beginning June 19

NEW YORK - A three-person delegation of leading political opposition figures
from Ukraine - headed by former Foreign Affairs Minister Borys Tarasyuk
(current chair of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Euro-Integration) and
including Valeriy Chaly (former deputy minister of foreign affairs) and Dr.
Yuri Shcherbak (Ukraine's former ambassador to the U.S and Canada) - is
arriving in the United States on June 19 at the invitation of the American
Foreign Policy Council (AFPC) and the Center for U.S.-Ukrainian Relations

The group will begin its trip to the U.S. with a series of public discussion
events at a number of important Ukrainian American community centers: on
June 19 in Whippany, N.J., at the Ukrainian American Cultural Center of New
Jersey (co-sponsors: Morris County branch of the Ukrainian Congress
Committee of America and the UACCNJ's Arts, Culture and Education
Committee), June 20 in New York at the Ukrainian Institute of America at
4:30 pm (sponsor: UIA) and June 21 in Philadelphia at the Ukrainian
Educational and Cultural Center (sponsor: Philadelphia UCCA and the
Philadephia 'Nova Khvylia').

Among the prominent themes that the gatherings intend to cover are: the
first 100 days of the Yanukovych presidency, the present condition of
U.S.-Ukraine relations, the status of NATO-Ukraine ties, the shape of
European Union-Ukraine links, the potential for a future Russia-Ukraine
entente, the possible threat of an increasingly authoritarian form of
governance in Ukraine and the general state of the opposition to the
Yanukovych administration.

The delegation will be in Washington on June 22 and 23 to discuss the larger
political, economic and security ramifications of the current direction of
the Ukrainian government at the State Department, Defense Department and the
National Security Council, as well as various venues on Capitol Hill.

During their time in the capital, the distinguished visitors will also be
feted at an AFPC/CUSUR-sponsored U.S.-Ukraine Working Group dinner, a
breakfast event organized by the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council and a
luncheon organized by the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation.

Relations at 917-476-1221 or 516-477-1157.
