Oleksandr graduated from the Institute of international relations of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv with a Bachelor’s degree in international law. Currently continues his studies there as a Master’s student. Oleksandr says he finally established himself as libertarian after reading Henry Hazlitt’s “Economics in one lesson”, although he was leaning towards the ideas of free market his whole life. Oleksandr believes that freedom is not just a vague concept but an ultimate recipe for success in the country dimension. That’s why he concentrates his main efforts in the organization on our legislative initiatives.
On Ukrainian Students For Freedom: «For me libertarianism ultimately began with the desire to make my country a better place. After years of studies and pondering I have come to a conclusion that the only reliable and proven way to do it is (economic) freedom. It is very important to have the support of your like-minds if you don’t want to sit aside while changes are happening. That’s why I am with USF – to implement projects and ideas I couldn’t implement alone. And to have fun doing it!»
