The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation announces the creation of a new interactive, Internet webcasting program service, AHA! Network.  The AHA! Network will communicate information relating to the Baltic-Black-Caspian Region and its relevance to U.S. and European foreign policy interests. The AHA! Network will bring together organizations and experts specializing in the area.  The Moldova Foundation and the U.S.-Baltic Foundation are helping to launch this webcasting program service.

The AHA! Network is also designed to support the Baltic-Black-Caspian Initiative. The Baltic-Black-Caspian Initiative brings together a number of U.S. and foreign non-profit organizations, including the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation, U.S.-Ukraine Business Council, U.S.-Baltic Foundation, Pylyp Orlyk Institute for Democracy, Moldova Foundation, Belarusan-American Association, and America-Georgia Business Council, to build and support trans-border cooperation at the local grass roots level in the areas of Democratic Leadership Development, Crisis Management, Energy Security, Economic & Trade Development, and Conflict Prevention and Resolution for the nations in the region.

For the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation, the Baltic-Black-Caspian Initiative and the AHA! Network aim to elevate the importance of Ukraine to the region and to focus on solving those trans-national issues which have plagued Ukraine since independence.

Through the AHA! Network, the Foundation intends to increase the importance of the region and the trans-national issues hindering democratic development, energy independence and economic progress.  Through  AHA! Network webcasts, the Foundation aims to make complex information more understandable and thereby build a wider audience in support of the region and Ukraine.

You can go to the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation’s website, http://www.usukraine.org, to watch previously-produced videos on Russian energy, Moldova’s Twitter Revolution and Belarus’s Domestic and Foreign Policies.

For anyone interested in joining the AHA! Network or the Baltic-Black-Caspian Initiative, please contact Nadia K. McConnell, President, at info@usukraine.org.  Questions and suggestions are also welcomed.
