Ukraine for me is my native land, where I was born, with which I associate my own future and the future of my children; it is the country where I see the most opportunities for my self-fulfillment as a person.
I went into politics because I possess the knowledge and vision to develop and strengthen my country on the international stage. I understand the mistakes in the internal politics of Ukraine have made it vulnerable to external aggression, and they also carry the threat of Ukraine’s loss of subjectivity in global politics.
I choose the Ukraine Development Party because I see that it provides opportunities for young people with adequate and reasonable ambitions, whose only capital is their intelligence, to obtain access to the political system for the implementation of their ideas in the conditions of fair competition.
