People of Ukraine Foundation hosted Book Presentation "WAR. RU" by Combat Veteran Yuriy Rudenko at the Army Navy Club, Washington DC.

“This book is an important contribution to understanding the current Russian war against Ukraine. It will be read both at home and internationally with deep interest. It covers the first year of the war during 2014 and early 2015. It tells day by day the shocking and often gory tale of how the war unfolded. It tells of the invasion of Crimea, the initial Russian attempts to create Novorossiya in the east of country and of the eventual invasion by battalions of Russian troops before the battle of Debaltseve, thus saving the Russian backed militants from defeat. It tells in a matter of fact way the battles, and the names of some, but not all, of the Ukrainian heroes. It tells of civilian casualties, of those captured and tortured, and gives numbers of those missing. It tells of the Russian and militant casualties and the Russian daily lies to the world. The author tries hard to put the battles in political and military context for that time” – Lt Col (Retd) Glen Grant, Royal Artillery, the first foreign adviser with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense in 2014

“Sooner or later, Russia will be forced to leave Ukraine and we will learn more details about the technologies and nuances of this hydride war. But the main thing that stopped the implementation of Putin's scenario of "forcing Ukraine to peace" was the spirit and self-sacrifice of the Ukrainian people. This is what this book is about” – Maj Gen (Retd) Volodymyr Havrylov, former Defense Attaché of Ukraine in the USA 2015-2018



Many thanks to all our dear friends and colleagues from the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA, who joined us to support and to cheer for Ukraine!

Hire Combat Veterans of Ukraine Initiative 


The goal of this initiative is to empower Ukrainian combat veterans and military spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce. These individuals thrived in tough situations and developed many skills — such as discipline, adaptability and dedication — that many employers need. Join this effort to encourage American, European and Ukrainian businesses to offer jobs to these deserving combat veterans of Ukraine. While the Ukrainian government provides some benefits for combat veterans, they do not include hiring services.

Because many veterans transition back into the civilian workforce between the ages of 30 to 40 years, they must acquire or improve their professional qualification skills to compete successfully in the local job market.

English Language Program for Combat Veterans of Ukraine 

“English Language Program for Combat Veterans of Ukraine” is on its second year of execution and continues to see an increase in program participants. Established in September 2019, it aims to improve participant communication skills and English language knowledge in order to facilitate successful transition to civilian careers. These new abilities are beneficial for everyday use as well as a valuable addition for resume building and employment applications. 


Moreover, these qualifications increase participant value to potential veteran employers in the local job market. This program creates a positive motivation for achievement in a veteran’s new phase in life as well as assisting combat veterans working through PTSD and other disabilities.


This year the program consists of 48 combat veteran and family member participants; nine of them are disabled and one is blind. We divided participants into two groups according to their prior English language knowledge. Each lesson is designed to provide differentiated learning for each specific participant in order to accelerate the learning process as much as possible.

Our new program for combat veterans:


“Basic Computer Skills for Combat Veterans and Families of Ukraine” 


This program aims to develop and improve basic computer literacy. These new abilities are beneficial for everyday use as well as a valuable addition for resume building and to facilitate second careers in an office setting. Disabled veterans benefit substantially by acquiring these critical skills to excel in a civilian setting.


Moreover, these qualifications increase participant value to potential veteran employers in the local job market. This program creates a positive motivation for achievement in a veteran’s new phase in life as well as assisting combat veterans working through PTSD and other disabilities.
