CIC Victoria: Via Zoom – The War in Ukraine featuring Yulia Kovaliv, the Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada

January 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST

Wednesday, 25 January from 10 – 11:00 am PT via Zoom:  The War in Ukraine. Join us as Yulia Kovaliv, the Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada, discusses Canada and Ukraine’s diplomatic and economic relations, past and present, the current situation in Ukraine including the Canadian government’s support to Kyiv, and her thoughts about the support coming from Canadians and the Ukrainian diaspora in Canada.  The talk will also offer participants an opportunity to ask the Ambassador how Canada and Canadians can continue supporting Ukraine and what support, if any, is missing or needs further addressing.  Ambassador Kovaliv will also speak about President Zelensky’s detailed 10-point peace formula that he announced late last year at the G20, and the G7, when he urged G7 leaders to convene a Global Peace Formula Summit to decide how and when to implement his Ukrainian peace formula.

Our speaker, Ambassador Kovaliv, was appointed Ukraine’s Ambassador to Canada and arrived in Ottawa in March 2022.
