On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, the Ukrainian Canadian Professional & Business Association of Toronto, and the Ukrainian Canadian Bar Association held a luncheon at the Albany Club with keynote speaker Mr. Bill Browder, CEO and co-founder of the investment fund Hermitage Capital Management and noted critic of Vladimir Putin.
Mr. Browder previously spoke to our associations in 2015.
In April 2022, Mr. Browder published his second New York Times Bestseller “Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin’s Wrath” an account of how he became Vladimir Putin’s number one enemy by exposing Putin’s campaign to steal and launder hundreds of billions of dollars and kill anyone who stands in his way.
The luncheon was attended by 135 guests, and once again the net proceeds from the luncheon will be donated to the Canada Ukraine Foundation.
With remarks by Uliana Tomiuk, UCPBA – Toronto, Alexandra Chyczij, UCC President, and Alesia Nahirny, UCBA. Organizers also included Jason Woycheshyn, Olha Senyshyn, Taras Kulish, and Yuri Chumak.
