Davos Ukrainian Breakfast
To foster change in Ukraine and put Ukraine on the international agenda, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation organizes the Davos Ukrainian Breakfast during the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum. Each year since 2005, the event has brought together Ukrainian and international leaders.

In 2019, the speakers discussed the challenges and choices lying ahead in light of the upcoming presidential elections in Ukraine.
The fact that Ukraine is able to have a competitive election is valuable and really important. I think it speaks above all of the strength of the Ukrainian civil society. The really great resource that Ukraine has is a strong, authentic, genuine civil society which showed its commitment to real democracy during the Revolution of dignity, and we are continuing to see the Ukrainian civil society really active.
Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada (2017-2019)
The event featured a keynote speech by the Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, (2014-2019). Fareed Zakaria, host of Zakaria GPS on CNN, moderated the discussion with Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada (2017-2019), John Kerry, 68th United States Secretary of State, Jared Cohen, Founder and CEO of Jigsaw, Anatoliy Grytsenko, leader of the "Civic Position" political party and Yulia Tymoshenko, leader of the political party "Batkivshchyna."

Previous speakers at the event have included José Manuel Barroso, Sir Richard Branson, David Cameron, Thomas Friedman, Robert Gates, David Lipton, Larry Summers, George Soros, and others.
Everybody who cares about the future of Ukraine, it is vital to take part in this election, to have real choices through it and not to be interfered by any outside forces.
— John Kerry, 68th United States Secretary of State
