Stelmashchuk and Sayenko Elected President and Vice President of Ukrainian Bar


On June 2, 2017, Andriy Stelmashchuk, the Managing Partner of Vasil Kisil & Partners, and Vladimir Sayenko, the Managing Partner of Sayenko Kharenko, were elected President and Vice President of the Ukrainian Bar Association, respectively, for two-year terms.

"During fifteen years of the development, the Association has made its way from a place where like-minded legal professionals gathered for discussions to become an active member of the civil society, whose voice now sounds louder," commented Andriy Stelmashchuk. "Though we may not say that the Association is absolutely solid, however, we have more points of contact than stumbling stones. I am convinced we will continue growing and developing as a community, since we are united, among other things, by the values we declare and implement into life. We have lots of work to do and I believe we will pass this way with dignity. As a result, we will become stronger and have less controversies among us,"

The Ukrainian Bar Association (UBA) has been operating in Ukraine since 2002. The purpose of the UBA, according to a statement released by Vasil Kisil & Partners, "is to facilitate the implementation of the rule of law and development of the legal state and legal profession."

Sayenko, who has been a Board Member of the UBA since its establishment in 2002, has been International Relations Officer for the past two years.
