Chattanooga Considers Official Partnership With Ukrainian City

Jun 19, 2023 | Political News

Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly has announced the formation of a resident-led work group meant to rally support for the Ukrainian city of Trostyanets, which reportedly survived a month of Russian occupation and is now attempting to rebuild. 

Trostyanets Mayor Yuri Bova was one of five Ukrainian mayors who attended the 2023 Cities Summit of the Americas back in April, to seek aid from American allies. He met Mayor Kelly at the summit and the two agreed to further discuss relations between their two cities. 

The Chattanooga Mayor’s office announced the resident-led work group claiming it will give Chattanoogans the opportunity to help Trostyanets recover and rebuild.
