Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, I have been in direct contact with our students!

I came to visit, talked to and told students of the National University of Ostroh Academy, Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Mechnikov National University of Odesa, and cadets of the Odesa Bezkorovainyi Naval Lyceum about the work of the Verkhovna Rada in wartime.

Everywhere I went, I saw in the eyes of our youth and felt great faith – faith in Ukraine and in our Victory! I felt a desire to stay here, to help the country and my community in these difficult times. Our students are actively volunteering for the Armed Forces, organising training camps and weaving camouflage nets. There are also those who are now at the front in the ranks of the Defence Forces, heroically defending our homeland from the enemy.

I am proud of the readiness of our students to defend their country, to actively participate in the post-war recovery and reconstruction of Ukraine, using all their knowledge and skills acquired during their studies, internships and military service.

We do not lose our optimism and faith in such wonderful Ukrainian youth, which means that Ukraine has a future!

I wish all students success, inspiration, self-confidence, opportunities for self-realisation and, most importantly, Victory!
