On September 22, 4:30 PM by Kyiv, the Reanimation Package of Reforms Coalition and the German Marshall Fund of the United States will organize the Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU) special briefing on: “Building a Stronger U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership”.
The event will focused on the recent meeting between President Biden and President Zelenskyy and the outcomes and commitments aimed at revitalizing strategic relations between the United States and Ukraine. The Biden-Zelenskyy meeting on September 1 and joint statement on the U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership highlight a bilateral relationship that continues to evolve and deepen with Washington pledging to enhance security, economic, energy, and democracy support.
In their joint statement, Washington and Kyiv acknowledge that Ukraine’s success is central to the global struggle between democracy and autocracy. At the same time, they argue that reforming the defense, security, and energy sectors, overhauling the judiciary, and developing anticorruption infrastructure, as well as ensuring sustainable economic growth, should be top priorities in Ukraine’s ongoing transformation.
How do Ukrainian experts assess the outcome of the Zelenskyy-Biden meeting and priorities going forward, including implementation of agreements and commitments? Can these agreements be the catalyst for democratic reforms and Euro-Atlantic integration? What are the key current challenges and where is the help of international partners needed?

About the Transatlantic Task Force on Ukraine (TTFU)
The task force was established in October 2018 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States and Reanimation Package of Reforms (RPR) with support from several civil society organizations in Ukraine, including the Ukraine Crisis Media Center. The main focus of the task force is to provide a real-time platform for stronger U.S., European and Ukrainian engagement and information sharing among policymakers, opinion-makers and civil society organizations on political, economic and security issues affecting Ukraine, its democratic transition and engagement with Western partners.
Given the state of global, regional and domestic challenges, including COVID19, facing the U.S., Europe and Ukraine the mission of TTFU is more important than ever to strengthen the transatlantic partnership with Ukraine and the region that continues to confront threats and hostile activities by Russian President Putin.
