Friends of Ukraine

The Friends of Ukraine Network (FOUN) is a non-partisan, informal coalition of former ambassadors, leading foreign policy and international security professionals, and other experts who have dealt with key aspects of Ukraine’s relations with the U.S. and the international community.

FOUN has four task force areas of focus: National Security, Economy and Energy, Humanitarian, and Democracy, Civil Society, Media and Educational Development.

FOUN’s 2017 Priority Recommendations for U.S. Assistance was produced as a practical and actionable set of policy recommendations to: stand with the People of Ukraine, support civil society’s fight against corruption, allow the People of Ukraine to defend themselves, and help victims of Putin’s war.

A component of the Friends of Ukraine Network is the Retired Members Ukraine Caucus, composed of former Members of the U.S. Congress.

FOUN evolved out of the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation’s 2006 – 2012 State Department funded U.S.-Ukraine Policy Dialogue programs.
