We are the Liberal Democratic League of Ukraine, a non-governmental organization that unites the best representatives of the young Ukrainian generation.
We have chosen the path of liberalism, as we believe that it is the best way to build a democratic state. Moreover, we sincerely believe that for creating such a state we need to empower people born in Ukraine and not in the country that no longer exists.
We know that liberal thought has not received worthy support among the Ukrainian people in the past. And this is not only because of the destructive influence of socialistic vestiges, but because of incompetence and inefficiency of the political entities that represented the ideas of liberal democracy during the last twenty-four years.
However, our approach is fundamentally different from that offered by our predecessors. Understanding the nature of the modern world, Ukrainian and global politics, we dare to fight for life, liberty and the right to the happiness of every Ukrainian.
Objectivism, healthy selfishness, rationalism and freedom of the individual, which ends where the freedom of another begins, are the virtues we profess. We do know that society can only develop in conditions of fair competition, free market, when the state is only a service center that provides services to Ukrainian people, and that no one shall be limited of his or her birthrights.
Moreover, our activities are based on the principle of uniting talented and perspective young people, born after 1991, for whom the progressive Ukraine is not just a dream; it is a goal, which has to be reached through hardship and challenges. We are the generation that government representatives choose to ignore.
We are the union of progressive lawyers, specialists in international affairs, economists, financial, political and sociological scientists, and representatives of other humanitarian movements.
We are not going to tolerate influence of the old post-socialistic on our country.
We have no sponsors and patrons, because we do not recognize any authority other than Ukrainian nation. Transparency and sometimes harsh honesty are the foundation of our social activities.
Today we act within public organization, but we aim to create powerful political force, which shall become a basis for development of liberal and democratic model of statehood.
We are the Liberal Democratic League of Ukraine and we swear not to stop our struggle for Ukraine and Ukrainians until we reach our high ideals!
