Illia is an alumni of the Ukrainian Academy of Leadership. He is a first year student in the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, studying Applied Mathematics. Also, he is an intern at the Horizon Capital. In the first place, he found out about the libertarian ideas in the end of his studying at the UAL. Then with his friend, he joined the Ukrainian Students for Freedom.
On Ukrainian Students for Freedom: «Unfortunately, in Ukraine, even after 26 years since the collapse of the USSR, society still stuck in communism and socialism, which impedes the stable development of the country. I think that what we are doing here in the Ukrainian Students for Freedom will help dispel myths about capitalism, and will help Ukraine build a free society.»
