Nobel Peace Prize winner Oleksandra Matviichuk
is visiting Canada (June 2024)

Nobel Peace Prize winner Oleksandra Matviichuk has been documenting Russian war crimes in Ukraine for 10 years, since the occupation of Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk.  Her centre has documented thousands of war crimes in the last two years alone, since the full-scale invasion in February 2022.  She has become the face and voice of resistance and human dignity, leading the international effort to try the perpetrators of crimes against humanity – from the Crime of Aggression to the systematic murder of civilians, to the state abduction of thousands of Ukrainian children in an effort to erase their Ukrainian identity or train them into “cannon fodder” for the Russian war machine.

On June 3-5, 2024 Oleksandra will be in Ottawa. 

On June 6-8, 2024 Oleksandra will be visiting Toronto.

For more details and tickets to events with Oleksandra Matviichuk, please visit the official page on Canada-Ukraine Foundation’s website.
