History

In 1996, Cherkasy Oblast, located in the heart of Ukraine, entered into a partnership with the State of Iowa. Governor Terry Branstad of Iowa and Governor Vasyl Tsybenko of Cherkasy established the partnership by signing an agreement.

 

The relationship has resulted in several professional, educational, and cultural exchanges. Our Cherkasy volunteers work closely with the Oblast administrative government and the Cherkasy Women's Center.
