…I got to know Viola in 2014 after the Revolution of Dignity when Viola brought a group of German activist to introduce them to Ukraine. At that time I co-founded the Professional Government Association (PGA) which consists of around 3000 western-educated alumni who came back to Ukraine and were ready to help with the reforms.
Since then Viola was an active supporter of the PGA, she introduced us to a lot of useful contacts in Germany with which we are still cooperating. Viola also took part in many meetings with the Ukrainian youth where she actively promoted transparency and openness of the reforms which needed to be done in Ukraine. Viola is a great role model and motivator.
During the course of our collaboration with Viola she is also helped a lot within the green energy agenda, guiding through the reforms which were successfully done in Germany and could be implemented in Ukraine. I am looking forward to fruitful cooperation with Viola in this area.
Overall, I support Viola because she is genuinely passionate about the right things, she thinks about people and justice. You can feel her sincerity and passion since the first minute you talk with her and throughout all of her actions.
