The “Ukrainian Connection Society” is a not-for-profit organisation which seeks to strengthen the ties between Ukraine and Republic of Ireland at all levels by providing a platform for closer contact and cooperation between the two countries in the fields of politics, business, culture, education and science.

The primary focus of the Society is to promote Ukraine among the Irish and international public – a country with a rich historical heritage and vibrant contemporary culture offering business opportunities and tourist attractions, as well as being strategically important.

By promoting closer cultural exchanges, the Society is laying the foundations for a better understanding of Ukraine and its people among the Irish public, while improved perceptions of the country also help Ukraine’s businesses foster partnerships with and attract investment from Irish and international businesses.

The Society provides a platform for closer cultural exchanges by organizing and sponsoring various cultural events in Ireland, fostering partnerships between Irish and Ukrainian artists, with a special focus on helping Ukrainian artists gain exposure and recognition in Ireland and internationally.
