Mr. Tolstoukhov paid an official visit to the Library of Congress on June 28 to make a book presentation "Ukraine: History of a Great Nation" co-sponsored by the European Division and the LCPA Ukrainian Language Table in cooperation with the Foundation.  The event was held in conjunction with his donation of over  90 books to the Library of Congress, thus expanding the Library's holdings related to Ukraine and Ukrainian history.
  
The Foundation assisted in other meetings and visits, including with The George Washington University,  Voice of America, Taras Shevchenko Monument and with Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John A. Boehner (R-OH).
