Russia’s assault on Ukraine has been ongoing for more than ten months. Ukrainians are bravely defending their sovereignty, independence and freedom on all fronts – military, social and political. With the aim of highlighting these efforts as well as cementing and gaining additional support from Ukraine’s international partners, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation will host several events during the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Besides the traditional Ukrainian breakfast discussion, the foundation will present the Ukraine is You project, and will again co-organize the Ukraine House Davos.
Ukraine is You invites guests to be Ukrainian for a moment, while warning that what is happening to Ukraine is equally a threat to others. It is an experience enabling others to share some moments of power experienced by Ukrainians defending freedom, in the face of the suffering that many Ukrainians were, and still are, subjected to, during the Russian aggression.
Project Ukraine is You
At the core of the project is an exhibition with film work from recently liberated Kherson, showing its beauty, as well as the threats and suffering resulting from the Russian siege. There is also a movie built from thousands of photographs and witness statements describing Russian war crimes in Ukraine, complemented by informative maps and statistics.
Complementing this experience, an ongoing 3-day discursive program brings together global thinkers, experts and people from the ground in Ukraine. They will discuss the assault on Ukraine, Russian war crimes and also the hope and empowerment of defending and reconquering life and freedom.
Ukraine is You is located at Promenade 59, Davos, a complementary event hosted on the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum, in a space shared with Ukraine House Davos.
The Ukraine is You project is organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and the PinchukArtCentre in cooperation with the Office of the President of Ukraine.
