People of Action

2011 was defined by Ukrainians able to overcome inertia

This is not a rating. The Ukrainian Week has decided to put aside that common approach for determining the "most influential," "richest" and "most successful" Ukrainians. Our chief criteria for inclusion was different - the ability to move ahead, counteract, develop and act as a catalyst for healthy processes. Remarkably, 2011 offered a number of collective images. These are communities of like-minded people who feel their responsibility for what is happening in the country. They may be evidence of a nascent civil society.
