“I welcome Oleksandr Popov to Chicago and am proud to renew our commitment as Sister Cities, allowing for further collaboration, economic growth and cultural partnership,” said Emanuel. “Chicago’s history as a city of immigrants has been made richer by the Ukrainian people, who have played a defining role in the economic, social and cultural fabric of Chicago.”

Besides meeting with Emanuel on Dec.3, Popov took part in a street-naming ceremony with city Alderman Roberto Maldonado in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood. 

“What makes Chicago unique is our celebration of the diverse peoples and cultures that make our city, every immigrant’s home away from home. The Ukrainian people have called Chicago, and the 26th Ward, home since 1890 and have proudly joined us as a ‘Sister City’ since 1991,” said Maldonado. “Today we commemorate our historic alliance for future generations of Ukrainians by designating Chicago Avenue and Oakley Boulevard ‘Honorary Kyiv-Chicago Sister Cities Way’ and look forward to promoting mutual economic and business development for the progressive growth of both of our great cities.”
