Mike is right, the email is signed by the head of the UOGCC, which is a group that split off from the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church several years ago. As can be seen from their web site they seem to retain a lot of latinization that the regular UGCC has tried to slough off. I do not think they are associated with the SSPX. In some respects they also look like they are more pro Russian than the UGCC.

Some edifying stuff, nonetheless:

Woody, you are correct. The 'SSPX equivalent' is the Priestly Society of Saint Josaphat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Priestly_Society_of_Saint_Josaphat
