‘I believe that society can live in harmony and wealth only if each individual understands and takes responsibility for their own happiness. The idea that someone else can decide for a person what is better for him seems to me criminal and immoral. I believe that the organization Ukrainian Students for Freedom is the light that will kindle the fire of the idea of individual freedom as the highest value in the hearts of millions of Ukrainians and will help to completely understand this value.’
