Message from the President

Welcome to Oxford University Ukrainian Society! As a first Ukrainian studying public policy in Oxford I feel a great sense of responsibility for being an ambassador of the country I love with all my heart. Ukrainian story is dramatic but very beautiful and special. I truly believe it can inspire millions of people around the globe.

As a president of Oxford University Ukrainian Society I want to spread Ukrainian voice by arranging various events and establishing long term cooperation with other societies, organizations so that we all together benefit social life in Oxford and learn from each other. I will do my best to work hard on running society to three directions - Smart, Creative and Fun.

Ukrainians share one core value - freedom that became as deep as religion. I truly believe that  today’s Ukraine is a unique place that will be one of the most interesting discoveries in the 21th century. And, with our help, the academia will be one of the first institutions to acknowledge it.

If you don’t want to miss it, come and join us at the Oxford University Ukrainian Society.

Looking forward to meet you!

Truly yours, Lisa Yasko

President of OUUS 2016-2017

Andrei Sheptytsky, the Metropolitan Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, is an extraordinary figure among Christian church hierarchs of the 20th century. Presiding over the Church under the Nazi occupation of Galicia during WW2, he was put into a situation where difficult compromises had to be made while struggled to remain true to the idea of a sovereign Ukrainian nation and to protect Jews during the Holocaust.

This event will bring together a Jewish academic studying Sheptytsky’s legacy and a Jewish Holocaust survivor who knew Sheptytsky and was saved by him.
