GoCamp’s Open Call for Volunteers

GoCamp’s Open Call for Volunteers

GoCamp | GoGlobal | NGO Global Office

This summer Ukraine invites volunteers for the largest educational programme in Eastern Europe. Join it and teach Ukrainian kids English and French at school camps all over the country! Options available for volunteers:

  • French program, where students will be encouraged to learn more about French culture and conduct changes in their communities.
  • Arts & Creativity program, where students will be encouraged to express themselves and the places they live in different art forms.

Both programs will take place online, from June 28 – July 9, 2021. Don’t miss the chance to help Ukrainian children, who might have never been to other countries or have never interacted with foreigners, get an amazing possibility to become real team players, critical thinkers and tolerant people who are ready to work in a multicultural environment.

35th Anniversary of the Chornobyl Disaster

35th Anniversary of the Chornobyl Disaster

The Ukrainian Weekly | Sunday, May 4, 1986, No. 18, Vol. LIV

The_Ukrainian_Weekly_1986-18

On April 26, 1986, a tragedy of unspeakable magnitude occurred at the Chornobyl nuclear power plant in Northern Ukraine. At 1:23 AM, an explosion at the plant blew the concrete roof off Reactor #4 spewing huge amounts of toxic radioactive particles into the atmosphere. Other than immediate attempts by Chornobyl workers to put out the fire caused by the explosion, there was no official government reaction to this catastrophe – no announcements were made, no warnings given – nothing that showed the slightest concern for the population of Ukraine, or for the global community in general. In a deliberate act of what can only be seen as negligence and disregard for the safety of millions, Soviet authorities remained silent. Continue reading “35th Anniversary of the Chornobyl Disaster”

35 Years Later: Remembering the 1986 Chornobyl (Chernobyl) Nuclear Disaster

The Ukrainian Museum in New York City

35 years ago today, on April 26, 1986, the worst nuclear accident in history occurred in Chornobyl (Chernobyl), Ukraine.

Chronicle of Severe Days (1986) | 6.5 min
Film by Volodymyr (Vladimir) Shevchenko | Narrated by Elena Filatova

What you will see:

  • Pictures of workers digging under the reactor wearing no protective equipment. They attempted to stabilize the melting base of the destroyed reactor.
  • Pictures of the workers on the roof of the reactor putting radioactive debris back into the radioactive container. Shevchenko made these pictures on the roof himself, and it is likely that he was exposed to excessive radiation at this point.
  • Shevchenko filmed a falling MI-24 helicopter. The helicopter flew directly over the destroyed reactor container, and the pilot likely suffered excessive radiation that debilitated him in the air.

UCCA’s advocacy recognized in Washington, calls for increased military assistance of Ukraine

UCCA’s advocacy recognized in Washington, calls for increased military assistance of Ukraine

Ukrainian Congress Committee of America | Український Конґресовий Комітет Америки

Following an historic election, during an unprecedented year not only for the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), but also for our entire global hromada, UCCA welcomed the incoming 117th United States Congress and newly elected presidential administration on behalf of the Ukrainian American community. In addition to proposing that the United States and Ukraine move toward specific goals in the next decade, was the reminder that for the incoming government to retreat from current sanctions against the Russian Federation and its proxies, or from continued military, political and economic support of Ukraine by the United States, would entail terrifying consequences for Ukraine, our European partners and the global geo-political security structure.

As UCCA made known just last week, the head of the Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute, was being considered for appointment as the new Russia director on the White House National Security Council (NSC). Earlier today, it was reported that following UCCA’s open letter to President Biden, Matthew Rojansky is no longer under consideration to join the Biden National Security Council.
