Political issues of Ukraine and USA

History and modern context of Ukraine-U.S. relations

The United States of America recognized Ukraine as an independent state on December 25, 1991. Diplomatic relations were established on January 3, 1992.

H.E. Valeriy Chaly is Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States of America (his credentials were presented on August 3, 2015). H.E. Geoffrey R. Pyatt is Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to Ukraine (his credentials were presented on August 15, 2013).

On April 4, 2005 the Presidents of Ukraine and the U.S. with their Joint Statement have upgraded bilateral relations to the level of a Strategic Partnership. In December 2008, a key document - the Charter on Strategic Partnership - was signed.

The strategic partnership between Ukraine and the U.S. is one of the key priorities of Ukrainian foreign policy, along with its relations with Russia and the European Union.

The Ukraine-U.S. Strategic Partnership Commission (SPC), established in December, 2009 and co-chaired by Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the U.S. Secretary of State, is a key inter-government body tasked with implementation of the Charter provisions and coordinating inter-agency bilateral mechanisms. Since that time there have been three sessions of the SPC.

The inter-agency mechanisms under the SPC umbrella deal with Trade and Investment, Energy and Nuclear Security, Nonproliferation and Export Control, Science and Technology, Rule of Law and Political Dialog, as well as Defense-related issues.

Ukraine is appreciative of the U.S. support for its integration with European structures and practical cooperation with NATO, and cooperation in the field of international security. The United States respects Ukraine’s non-aligned status and believes that Ukraine, like any other country, has the right to choose how its national security is ensured.

Supporting Ukraine’s practical cooperation with NATO, the U.S. provides assistance in implementing Annual National Programs which are crucial to reforming the Armed Forces according to the highest standards. In 2010, the United States supported Ukraine’s candidacy for the OSCE presidency in 2013.

On September 17-18, 2014, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko made a working visit to the United States and had a meeting with the President of the United States Barack Obama. The agenda included bilateral meetings with U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. The President addressed a joint session of the U.S. Congress.

The Presidents of Ukraine and the United States discussed a wide range of issues on bilateral cooperation in various spheres. In particular the issues of maintaining security, economy, and financial cooperation were addressed. The participants paid special attention to the topic of energy cooperation. The Ukrainian President noted the importance of support from the USA in the implementation of international coordination considering Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. Petro Poroshenko underlined that the only way towards de-escalation of the situation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions is the Peace Plan that includes a ceasefire, liberation of all hostages, the withdrawal of Russian troops, the establishment of control over the border, and the prevention of the supply of Russian arms. The President of the United States expressed full support for the Peace Plan and announced that, in addition to the assistance granted to Ukraine by the United States in the amount of $240 million USD and $1 billion USD of financial guarantees, Ukraine would receive more practical assistance including enhanced financial support aimed at security goals and assistance in the economic, financial, and energy spheres. President Obama stressed that the U.S. would lead the international community, and join the EU in combating Russian aggression.

The legal framework for bilateral cooperation has advanced considerably in recent years. Ukraine and the U.S. have concluded 143 agreements.

Ukraine’s priority issues for bilateral cooperation in the energy field include the attraction of U.S. know-how in energy resource exploration (including shale gas and coal-bed methane), investment in Ukraine’s energy sector (in particular in gas and oil exploration on the Black Sea shelf), and further cooperation in the diversification of nuclear energy fuel for Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plants. As a result of tenders in 2012 U.S. companies Exxon Mobil and Chevron will participate in Ukraine’s energy sector.  

The United States ranks 12th in terms of direct investments in Ukraine’s economy.

The U.S. remains the largest donor of technical assistance to Ukraine, especially in the framework of Chornobyl projects. The United States granted over $360 million for Chornobyl confinement projects, including $123 million – as a result of the Kyiv Summit on Secure and Innovative Use of Nuclear Energy (April, 2011).

The main efforts of military cooperation are focused on U.S. Defense Department assistance for the implementation of defense reform in Ukraine, improvement of Joint response forces within the national Armed Forces, development and modernization of military training facilities, increasing financing of military assistance programs, improvement of inter-operability level of the defense bodies of both countries, joint military training exercises, and international anti-terrorism operations.

Important areas of cooperation include implementation of a number of projects under the G8 initiative “Global Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction”, realization of the NATO/PfP Trust Fund Project to eliminate surplus small weapons and munitions in Ukraine, bilateral negotiation process regarding funding of SS-24 solid rocket propellant liquidation program, implementation of a number of projects related to strengthening the physical protection of nuclear materials, as well as Ukraine’s potential in countering illegal trafficking in nuclear and radioactive materials.

Bilateral cooperation in the sphere of science and technology, as well as in space exploration and rocket building, remains a high priority for both countries.

The United States is Ukraine’s leading partner in the field of health care, particularly in fighting HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and avian and pandemic flu. A number of programs involving use of U.S. medical technologies to help Ukrainian children and persons suffering from grave diseases are being implemented. A number of U.S. state and private funds are financing the supply of medical equipment to Ukraine. The United States played an important role in thwarting the H1N1 pandemic in Ukraine.

U.S.-Ukraine inter-parliamentary cooperation is also characterized by positive dynamics. The Ukrainian Congressional Caucus unites more than 30 U.S. lawmakers and plays a significant role in deepening our bilateral relations. The Ukraine-U.S. group for parliamentary cooperation in Verkhovna Rada consists of over 100 members. Ukrainian legislators frequently visit the U.S. capital within the framework of the inter-parliamentary exchange program sponsored by the House Democracy Assistance Commission.

The fact that there are more than 900,000 Ukrainians living in the United States is an important factor for the more efficient realization of Ukraine-U.S. cooperation potential (the U.S. media, published in Ukrainian, state that there are 2 million Ukrainians). That is why it is a high priority for Ukraine to strengthen relations with the Ukrainian community and ensure that its ethnic and cultural needs are met.

Twenty-three Ukrainian and American cities enjoy fruitful sister-cities cooperation.  

U.S.-Ukraine interparliamentary cooperation

The cooperation between Ukrainian and American legislators goes back to the Soviet times, when delegations of members of the U.S. Congress visited Kyiv on numerous occasions as part of trips to the Soviet Union. Many of them, who first visited our country in the 1980’s, are still active in politics and often recall how warm and hospitably they were welcomed in Ukraine.

As Ukraine became independent in early 1990s, the inter-parliamentary dialogue reached a new level. The first parliamentary delegation of the independent Ukraine visited Washington DC in October 1991, two months after the declaration of independence, and was led by then Speaker of the Ukrainian parliament L.Kravchuk. Members of the U.S. Congress and the Verkhovna Rada were actively involved in establishing a network of bilateral relations. It was back in those days when Senators R. Lugar, J. McCain, M. McConnell, as well as House Representatives C. Weldon and M. Kaptur became the champions of the Ukraine-U.S. relations.

Subsequently a number of Ukrainian MPs established the Ukraine-U.S. Group for Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation. This group has become one of the largest in the Verkhovna Rada.

In 1997, the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus (in the U.S. House of Representatives) was founded. Creation of the Caucus was supported by the Ukrainian diaspora in the U.S. and was initiated by Rep. S. Levin, J. Fox, L. Slaughter and B. Schaffer. This important achievement was announced to the public at a reception commemorating the first anniversary of the adoption of the Ukrainian Constitution, held at the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States.

The Ukrainian Congressional Committee of America and Head of its Washington branch M. Sawkiw made a significant contribution to further development of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus.

The Caucus became one of the largest caucuses in the Congress. Currently it consists of 30 members of the U.S. Congress representing both the Democratic and Republican parties. Today the Ukrainian Caucus is led by three co-chairs – M. Fitzpatrick (R-PA), M. Kaptur (D-OH) and S. Levin (D-MI). Most of the Caucus members have a large Ukrainian constituency in their home districts. Some of them, for example M. Kaptur, are of Ukrainian descend.

The Caucus is aimed at expanding bilateral Ukraine-U.S. cooperation, including authoring legislation. Another goal is to disseminate information to the members of Congress about current political, economic, social, and cultural events occurring in Ukraine, as well as drafting recommendations on the further development of the U.S. policy toward Ukraine. Special attention is paid to supporting Ukraine in democratization and market-oriented reforms, as well as to shaping the U.S. Congress official position regarding Ukraine’s success in their implementation.

Among other important achievements, which were greatly contributed to by the Caucus,  should be mentioned the U.S. annual financial support of Ukraine, adoption of legislation to create a Washington DC memorial honoring the victims of the 1932-1933 Holodomor, and Ukraine's graduation from the provisions of the U.S. Jackson-Vanik amendment.

In February 2015, the Senate Ukraine Caucus was created. It is co-chaired by Sen. R. Portman (R-OH) and Sen. R. Durbin (D-IL). Vice Co-chairs are Sen. K. Ayotte (R-NH), M. Kirk (R-IL), R. Johnson (R-WI), C. Murphy (D-CT), Sh. Brown (D-OH) and J. Shaheen (D-NH).

Developments at the Maidan, establishment of new Government, election of new Verkovna Rada and President of Ukraine on the one hand, occupation of Crimea and Russian aggression in east Ukraine on the other hand, came in focus of the U.S. Congress. During the Maidan, Representatives and Senators condemned use of force and arms against the protesters, as well as they supported European aspirations of the Ukrainian people. Occupation of Crimea and Russian aggression mobilized the U.S. Congress, which demonstrated unprecedented bipartisan unity in support of our country. Since February 2014, Members of the U.S. Congress introduced dozens of draft resolutions and bills on Ukraine. 12 of them have passed, including bills “Support for the Sovereignty, Integrity, Democracy, and Economic Stability of Ukraine”, “United States international programming to Ukraine and neighboring regions” and “Ukraine Freedom Support Act”. As of today, the US Congress is overwhelmingly united in providing Ukraine with additional financial and military support, including defensive arms.

Members of the Caucuses meet with representatives of the Ukrainian Government and members of the Ukrainian Parliament. They also actively participate in events on the Hill that are dedicated to the benefit of Ukraine. One example is the annual Ukrainian Days in Congress. Active position of the Ukrainian community in the United States is an important factor of the Caucuses’ work.

Since February 2014, an unprecedented amount of Congressional delegations visited Ukraine. Dozens of Representatives and Senators came to our country in order to see with their own yes Ukraine’s existing challenges and to figure out, how the U.S. Congress further help to the Ukrainian people.

At the same, Ukrainian MPs visit the United States on a regular basis. They meet with members of the Congress and participate in a variety of international events.
