On Monday, 4 October 2010, the 42nd President of the United States William Jefferson Clinton met with Ukrainian students, as part of the “Public Lectures” project of the Victor Pinchuk Fundation. The Victor Pinchuk Foundation regularly invites internationally renowned economists, politicians and public figures to Ukraine to discuss today’s challenges facing Ukraine and the world.

On Wednesday, 6 October 2010, President Clinton visted the Kiev Caves Lavra and was welcomed by Archbishop Paul. The former President showed much enthusiasm on visiting the Lavra and on hearing the stories of the Saints who lived there in the past. He was also told by the Archbishop of the incorrupt relics of these Saints which the President had a chance to see. The Archbishop gave Mr. Clinton a jar of honey from the Lavra as a gift.
