RUSLANA KHARKOVENKO

Ukraine for me is my father's home, mother's eyes, a child's laughter, family's well-being and the land blessed by God.

I went into politics because I wanted to actively influence socially important decisions, and I am used to making my choices consciously. I have understood that the state of public health depends on political decisions in the medical sphere, and health is the most valuable need of each person. I have served people in the medical profession, but now if it is necessary to go into politics in order to save the lives of little patients - I am ready to go into politics!

I choose the Ukraine Development Party because it is a new possibility for team work and a democratic approach; also, I can make a personal contribution into peace-making in my native country.

Life creed (motto): the winner is not the one who finishes in first place, but is the one who does not give up.
