The last electoral cycle in Ukraine ended with the total defeat of traditional politicians and parties at the national level. A new cycle begins with local elections in 2020 and should wrap up in 2024, when the next presidential race is scheduled. The dates could change significantly, of course, as has happened more than once in the past, but one thing is certain: Ukrainians born between 2002 and 2006 will join the voting electorate for the first time. Information about how many of them there are, their interests and lifestyles are presented here.
Ukraine’s baby boom
At the beginning of the 2000s the birthrate began to climb in Ukraine after declining throughout the 1990s to a historical low. The peak of this Ukrainian baby boom came later, as there are somewhat more 13-17 year-olds today than 18-22 year-olds.
