The Continuity team has just returned from a trade delegation to Ukraine sponsored by the charitable organization August Mission and the State of Utah. Led by a Utah State Senator and State Congressman, the diverse delegation included:
- August Mission
- Continuity Global Solutions
- Utah Aerospace and Defense Association (UADA)
- Utah World Trade Center
- Various Utah businesses working/looking to work in Ukraine
- Several charitable organizations
- Embedded correspondents from Deseret News
The delegation traveled to Poland, which has offered robust support for the Ukraine war effort, functioning as a major logistical hub and taking in over two million refugees. In Warsaw, the group met with members of the American Chamber of Commerce. They then traveled by bus and van to Kmelnitsky, Kiev and Lviv in Ukraine.
During the 6-day tour, the delegation met with local and federal Ukrainian government agencies, military organizations and local businesses, networking and exploring ways to bring support to the war-torn country. The Ukrainians expressed deep gratitude for U.S. support in their fight to expel the Russian invaders and were happy to meet and share their stories. Other than a few hours spent in a bomb shelter in Kiev watching a drone being shot down with antiaircraft fire, the delegation had a successful trip without incident. The visit was an excellent opportunity to connect with and better understand the plight of the Ukrainian people.
