An exceptional programme of events with the participation of world-famous speakers: www.ukrainehousedavos.com

The Ukrainian House in Davos will open its doors on January 16, 2023 for a four-day programme of panel discussions and cultural events during the World Economic Forum. This year's programme of the Ukrainian House, which is being opened for the fifth time, is focused on strengthening international solidarity and support for Ukraine.

The Armed Forces, the government headed by the President of Ukraine, and ordinary Ukrainians have inspired the world with exceptional acts of bravery – from the battlefield to volunteering, from diplomacy to the economy. Western countries, along with other allied governments and conscious citizens around the globe, are united in unprecedented support for Ukraine. Despite Russia’s brutal onslaught, Ukraine remains united, defiant, determined, strong, and resilient. This is not only a war against Ukraine, but an attack on the principles and values of the democratic world.

Ukraine House is returning to Davos and aims to unify and inform the response of the global community to Russia’s war on Ukraine. Ukraine House will bring together high-level government, civic society, and business leaders amplifying the country’s voice, including what Ukraine needs to ensure a victorious outcome; its immense contribution to global food security; the ongoing attack on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure and what support is needed urgently now; shining a spotlight on Ukraine’s heroic defenders, humanitarian heroes and global ambassadors; as well as focusing on economic resilience, rebuilding cities, investment opportunities now and in the future, and much more.

"This year, at the Ukrainian House in Davos, we will contribute to the strengthening of global support for Ukraine, which during the last year has united the entire democratic world around itself," said Ulyana Khromyak, executive director of the Ukrainian House in Davos. "This year has been extremely difficult for Ukrainians.", it was marked by difficulties, pain, and suffering, which multiply daily. The realization that Davos and the wider international community are on the side of Ukraine gives our people the strength to continue the struggle. We must defend our sovereignty, continue to fight for freedom and the European future, and patiently wait for our great country's reconstruction and revival. We must defend our sovereignty, continue to fight for freedom and the European future, and wait patiently for the rebuilding and revitalization of our great country. We have the honor of hosting world-renowned speakers, first-class moderators, and, most importantly, inspired Ukrainians who defend their country at the front and do everything to ensure it remains stable and indomitable. We will welcome you to the Ukrainian House in Davos!".

Among the speakers are high-ranking Ukrainian officials, mayors of Ukrainian cities who have been under siege, leading foreign politicians, humanitarian sector activists, and international business leaders, journalists, and supporters of a free Ukraine.
