Ukraine for me is my native land, the country which has a great economy, natural beauty, and above all, fantastic human potential. We have absolutely everything for the development of our country. But the irony is that we have not learned how to use our national heritage for the benefit of the Ukrainian people. I admire the human industry and warm-heartedness of my people; I see the twinkle in the eyes of the youth and their sincere smiles. Now Ukraine is not only a geographical part of Europe. It has become associated with the European family not long ago. That is why Ukrainians deserve to live in the European way.
I went into politics because I am aware of the responsibility for the future of Ukraine, and I feel it is necessary to use politics as a tool in the achievement of the supreme goal – the development of a united, democratic, legal, European country.
I choose the Ukraine Development Party because its priorities and tasks are close to me: the development of a civil society, reform of the local self-government, decentralization of power and the European choice have been declared in the program and the statutory rules. This is the centrist party, which affirms the ideals of social liberalism. The Ukraine Development Party stated its principles as assistance to the party structure reforming, protection of the interests of the party fellows, its supporters and the Ukrainian society as a whole.
Life creed (motto): to work for people, for the benefit of Vinnitsia land, in the name of Ukraine! It is not only my life motto; it is the style of my life.

Sports, lawn tennis and swimming in particular have played the main role in my life. But the biggest hobby is spending my free time with my grand-daughters.
Plans for the future.
I want to create an effective team in the region, which will work for the benefit of the development of the Vinnitsia territorial society dwellers, and will protect their interests. In the context of the economic development we are planning to implement with our partners from European countries common projects, investment in particular. We are planning to create a modern business-incubator in Vinnitsia according to the model of the European countries, promoting the development of small and medium businesses. My task as a politician and a public figure is to promote the completeness of the decentralisation of power and local self-government reform. I have a reliable team of partners and opinion allies, and that is why all the above mentioned will be successfully achieved.
