UKRAINIAN SECURITY AND COOPERATION CENTER

TRUST IN UKRAINE IS THE TRUST IN THE FREE FUTURE OF THE WORLD

Wars, repressions, Holodomors, and other grave ordeals fell on the shoulders of the Ukrainian people in the XX century. Totalitarian Russia, which occupied the newly created Ukrainian state after the First World War, killed millions of people during 70 years of enslavement. Representatives of many generations of Ukrainians gave their lives in the struggle for freedom and independence, which was restored in 1991 with the fall of the Soviet Union.

In 2013, Moscow again desired to deprive Ukrainians’ of their freedom with the help of its puppets, but the nation defended it in the flames of the Revolution of Dignity. Because of this, the following 2014, the Russian army occupied Crimea, parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and unleashed hostilities against Ukraine. But the Ukrainian people and their army have restrained the Kremlin’s offensive and continue to defend democracy and the entire free world.

We are open to all those who support Ukraine’s path to NATO and the EU, to all those who understand that one of the greatest threats to a free Europe is Russia and Russian aggression, to all those who understand that protecting national dignity, freedom, and democracy is the guarantee of the existence of the free world.

ABOUT US

Ukrainian Security and Cooperation Center was founded in April 2021 by a team formed during the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine.

With the beginning of the Russian armed aggression, the occupation of Crimea and parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, the main part of the team organized support for the Anti-Terrorist Operation (Joint Forces Operation), delivering humanitarian aid to forward units of the Ukrainian Army on the contact line. At the same time, the team launched a #VymknyRosiyske (Switch Russian Off) public campaign aimed at labeling, identifying, and countering the Kremlin’s influence in Ukraine and around the world, including in politics, economics, culture, and the humanitarian spheres.

Moreover, the team organized dozens of visits of representatives of Western think tanks, scientists, politicians, and journalists to Ukraine, which included meetings with top officials, heads of law enforcement agencies, commanders, and fighters of forward units, which hold the line against Russian military formations in the East of Ukraine.

The USCC’s major mission is to establish new communication channels, create new platforms for dialogue and cooperation, support at the public and expert level steps on Euro-Atlantic integration, strengthening Ukraine’s national security and defense.
