He was born on December 24, 1995 in Korosten, Ukraine into a family of engineer and driver. He is a winner of nationwide competitions. He graduated from Korosten Secondary school №11 with honors and entered the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv on the Department of Philisophy, specializing in political sciences in 2013. He also protested during Euromaidan. He was elected Head of the Department of liberal democracy of the LDLU in December 2015.
Serhii is fond of football and he is a big fan of London Arsenal. He is interested in the war history and military affairs of the first half of the 20th century and travels across the Ukraine a lot. He studies the theory of liberalism and its interaction with other political and philosophical ideologies and Canadian model of liberal democracy. He speaks English and professes values of moderate liberalism.
«I believe that the Ukrainian Revolution of 2014 if not completely changed our perception of our role in the society and the world, it at least made us think about it. Apparently, a nation under certain pressure can develop necessary values in months, instead of decades. All you need is to unite.
The most pleasant thing for me as an individual, who has always believed in freedom as the highest good, is that “European” values as we understand them appeared to be liberal.
Recently I adopted the moral maxim, told by a member of a certain NGO, which consults the government. He literally said, “The goal of my life is to improve those systems which I am part of”.
Ukraine is the system I want to improve the most and in that, I am willing to put my effort, in order to become a better person and to help others to do the same because the success of system depends on its members whom I also represent.
Existence of such organizations as LDLU made it clear for me that I am not the only one who sees liberal democracy as the only way of the Ukrainian development.
Being the head of the Department of Liberal Democracy I want to make Ukraine batter by destroying socialistic rudiments and other mental barriers the Ukrainians have and which prevent them from becoming truly free.
After all, what I really want to do is to create new liberal democratic European Ukraine together with like –minded people.»
