The international subcommittee will work with the UCSN Steering Committee to share information and support projects in aid of Ukraine and its people affected by the war.
The new subcommittee will
The UCSN, co-chaired by Nataliya Popovych and David Gallagher, was established by the PRCA and ICCO in March 2022 to coordinate volunteer communications activity in support of Ukraine following Russia’s invasion.
UCSN Co-Chair, Nataliya Popovych commented, “Ukraine is fighting a fight against an aggressive Russian bully not only for the right of Ukrainians to exist and live freely as a sovereign democratic nation. It now fights for every person in the world who wants to live freely and peacefully in a rules-based world. Ukraine fights for a world where no nation can redraw internationally recognised borders based on its sense of mistaken superiority or a delusion that it can impose its will over free people.
"To win against a nuclear-armed aggressor like Russia and serve all the responsible for this horrible war justice within the international law, Ukraine needs a global coalition of the free world and the role of the public relations professionals is very important here.
"We call on the best communications experts in their respective markets to support Ukraine, counter Russian disinformation and manipulation of history, work to cripple Russia's economy to wage this war against Ukraine or any other sovereign state. We look forward to working together for the lasting peace in Europe and the world!"
