Thank you to all who came today to the first-ever Ukrainian-Russian/Russian-speaking diaspora dialogue. Thank you to our distinguished speakers Andrew Grigorenko and Dr. Alexander Burakovsky, as well as to Maryland State House Delegate Kirill Reznik (the only Ukraine-born and one of the only two Russian-speaking immigrant elected officials in the US) for his video greeting. The event, held at Columbia University, was focused upon the shared history of Russian and Ukrainian democrats’ struggle against one-party rule and for the peaceful dismantling of the Soviet empire a quarter century ago. Our Association presented a playlist of video documentaries on this topic that can be used for antiwar and anti-hate education in both communities. Event participants created a task force on Ukraino-Russian peace dialogue in the diaspora that will be planning future events.
