U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland and Lichtenstein Scott C. Miller traveled to Lugano, Switzerland from July 4 to 5 to lead the U.S. delegation at the Ukraine Recovery Conference (URC 2022). The United States’ delegation included representatives from USAID, U.S. Department of the Treasury, and U.S. Department of State.
URC 2022, co-hosted by the Swiss and Ukrainian governments, served as a key engagement for the international community to facilitate Ukraine’s recovery from Russia’s brutal and unjustified war. Additionally, the conference provided an opportunity for the United States to demonstrate its strong support for Ukraine’s recovery, and to coordinate with international partners as Ukraine pursues a European path. U.S. leadership will be vital in ensuring that the government of Ukraine succeeds in stabilizing its economic and security situation, and in facilitating support for reconstruction efforts. The United States continues to support Ukraine as it defends itself from Russia’s unprovoked attack and rebuilds for a more democratic and prosperous future.
