CUSUR 2016 - Project I
US-UA “Working Group” Initiative

The US-Ukraine “Working Group” Initiative was launched in 2007 in order to secure an array of experts in "areas of interest” for CUSUR and its various forums/proceedings; at the same time, it was hoped that the ‘experts’ might agree to write a series of ‘occasional papers’ to identify “major issues” impacting on US-Ukrainian relations.
CUSUR 2017 - Project II
Publication Efforts

Recognizing the urgent need to set up proper channels for the maximum circulation of the information/analysis CUSUR possessed or had at its disposal, the Center long focused on having ‘a publication presence’ of some form or another.
CUSUR 2019 - Project III
DC Occasional Briefings Series

CUSUR did not turn its attention to having a DC presence until summer 2012. Borrowing space when the need arose (particularly for various forum steering committees meetings) from the American Foreign Policy Council, its longest abiding partner, seemed to suffice; an Acela ride from the Center’s NY office did the rest. If there was a concern, it was to open an office in Kyiv.
Modern Ukrainian State at 25
An UA HES Special Event entitled: 'Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Modern Ukrainian State' took place on Sept. 17, 2016 at the Princeton Club in New York City; the list of sponsors included the Center for US-Ukrainian Relations, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America, the Ukrainian Institute of America, the Ukrainian Museum of NY, the Ukrainian National Association, the Ukrainian National Women's League of America, the Ukrainian Scouting Organization of America and the Ukrainian Youth Association of America. The gathering’s first part featured four panel discussions and three highlight presentations dedicated to taking a fresh, critical look at Ukraine’s Distant Past and Recent Past as well as carefully divining the nation’s Near Future and Further Future. The gathering’s second part featured an evening banquet with reflections upon the Ukraine’s Present Circumstances provided by senior officials (active & retired) of the Ukrainian and United States governments respectively.
