“По завершенню Другої світової війни ведеться нерівна на теренах Західної України боротьба на два фронти: спочатку проти німецьких військ та диверсійних загонів НКВС СРСР, а потім – самотужки у лютому герці з усією каральною силою СРСР. У Карпатах продовжують збройну боротьбу частини та невеликі боївки Української повстанської армії.

2020 Holodomor Memorial Service at St Patrick Cathedral

2020 Holodomor Memorial Service at St Patrick Cathedral

Ukraine’s Holodomor, Stalin’s Famine Genocide of 7–10 million Ukrainians in 1932-1933, ranks among the worst cases of man’s inhumanity towards man. In memory of the innocent victims of this Soviet Genocide, 3 million of which were children, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), annually co-organizes an ecumenical commemoration at St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on the 3rd Saturday of November, which regularly attracts thousands of attendees from across the tri-state metropolitan area.

This year, the organizers of our annual event advise our community not to travel to St Patrick’s Cathedral this November 21st. Case reporting of COVID-19 continues to spread in New York City with increases recent hospitalizations concerning local authorities enough to begin limiting non-essential gatherings in certain neighborhoods. We encourage you to instead watch the livestream from St Patrick’s Cathedral to mark the 87th year of Holodomor commemoration.

In lieu of a mass gathering with remarks by elected officials, Metropolitan Antony, Prime Hierarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, and Bishop Paul Chomnycky, Eparch of the Ukrainian Catholic Diocese of Stamford, will lead a panakhyda (the solemn Ukrainian liturgical service for the repose of the departed) at the cathedral without the usual masses of priests from the surrounding parishes con-celebrating, nor the revered sound of the Ukrainian Chorus “Dumka” of New York singing the responses.


This service will be livestreamed at https://saintpatrickscathedral.org/live.

While this annual event is an iconic and treasured event for our community, UCCA puts the health and safety of our community, especially those few remaining survivors of the Holodomor Genocide who attend this commemoration every year. After careful consultation with church hierarchs, and following on the global concern regarding the coronavirus outbreak, travel concerns and other circumstances, UCCA has informed our invited speakers that this year’s program will be abbreviated.

UCCA and the rest of our event organizers look forward to once again organizing this solemn commemoration on November 20th, 2021, marking the the 88th year since the crime of the Holodomor was committed against the Ukrainian people.

The 2020 United States Presidential Election

UCCA ENCOURAGES INCREASED VOTER TURNOUT AMONG UKRAINIAN AMERICANS

The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the largest representation of Americans of Ukrainian descent, looks to increase voter participation by the Ukrainian American community in this year’s elections. At the beginning of the primary season, UCCA President Andriy Futey stated, “We strongly encourage our Ukrainian-American community to exercise their right to vote and make their voice heard. Do not sit back and watch from the sidelines. Make your voice heard.”

Since the 11th Congress of Ukrainians in America in 1972, UCCA’s quadrennial conventions have coincided with Presidential Election years and have served as a venue for presidential campaigns to share their visions of U.S.-Ukraine relations. Due to the Coronavirus epidemic, the 23rd Congress of Ukrainians in America was rescheduled to October 2021.

Following the 2020 political conventions at which the Republican and Democratic parties affirmed their candidates for president of the United States, UCCA and its Washington, D.C., bureau – the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS) – sent out a presidential questionnaire to help summarize their campaign’s overview of U.S. relations with Ukraine.

This year, the two campaigns have responded with their overview of U.S. relations with Ukraine. Below, please find information about Ukraine from the Democratic and Republican campaigns. We share them publicly to help encourage Ukrainians in America to head to the polls this year.

UCCA and UNIS also reminds our membership and followers that all 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for election, as well 35 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate. Only by maximizing the Ukrainian American presence at the polls, will incoming Representatives and Senators understand the importance of continued bipartisan support of Ukraine, and continue to enact vital Congressional funding for aid to Ukraine.

Remember to cast your ballot! Your Vote Matters!
