The Euro-Atlantic Youth Security Forum


November, 3, 2016 


Today I had a wonderful opportunity to welcome guests and participants at the Opening of Euro-Atlantic Youth Security Forum.

The topic of Euro-Atlantic Security and multiple topics related to it are very important nowadays, especially for Ukraine.

Today we form a new generation of Ukrainians that on the one hand are proud of the history and culture and ready to protect their Motherland, and on the other hand, are ready to cooperate and establish good cultural and economic connections with the European colleagues that respect our right on sovereignty and originality.

The organizers have invited wheelchair dancers from more than 10 countries of CIS and Europe for a dancing flash mob.

Ruta company has provided Ukrainian participants with the national costumes. In other words, we have all the reasons to mention that our dancers will be not only the most high-ranked, but the most fashionable as well.

Fashion is never asocial and Ukrainian fashionistas and fashion community gladly support the key mission of the event. This event itself is a unique chance to demonstrate to everyone the role and the meaning of sport dances on wheelchairs, to demonstrate the strength of the spirit and willpower of handicapped people, as well as to establish strong international contacts.

Ukraine will be presented by: Ilona Slugovina (three-times Wheelchair Dance World Champion) and Mykhaylo Annenkov (Wheelchair Dance Sport Ukrainian Champion, Candidate Master of Sports of international level), as well as Ivan Zamiga (three-times Champion of Ukraine and World Cup holder) and Olena Dankevych (Master of Sports of international level, World and Europe Champion, three-times Champion of Ukraine).

Fashion Show Shines Spotlight on Disabled


July 26, 2012


Models show off sleek evening gowns and glamorous hats as Ukraine’s celebrities.

Models with physical disabilities prepare to take part in a“Fashion week chance” show in Kiev July 25, 2012. Ukrainian


Kiev: At a glitzy Kiev night club brimming with neon lights and energetic pop music, the models showed off sleek evening gowns and glamorous hats as Ukraine’s celebrities cheered on. But this was no ordinary fashion show — some models rolled on wheelchairs, others were blind.

At the Wednesday night event dubbed Fashion Chance a dozen designers mostly from Ukraine presented outfits for physically handicapped women, in a bid to bring attention and dignity to some of Ukraine’s most marginalised citizens. In a country where most buildings lack wheelchair ramps and only a very few public schools accept disabled children, the show was a small but vivid step toward removing the stigma that cloaks Ukraine’s disabled. “People on wheelchairs, the blind, the handicapped should all feel accepted,” said 26-year-old Ilona Slugovina, an avid wheelchair ballroom dancer, who modeled a lilac-colored glittery evening dress.

Some models moved confidently down the runway — on wheel chairs, or accompanied by handsome young men in elegant suits — flashing smiles and some attempting to mimic the traditional model gait. One blind model coquettishly held her hand on her hip and played with a lock of hair. Others appeared nervous.

Moved by the show, some in the audience cried.

“I felt beautiful, I felt confident,” said Antonina Krivobok, who masterfully rolled and turned around in a wheelchair and posed in front of TV cameras as she presented a purple evening dress.

Beginning and already established designers presented elegant dresses and suits for women on wheelchairs or with other handicaps. Some of the outfits differed little from what ambulatory women would wear, others were cut in a more voluminous fashion to accommodate the needs of the wheelchair-bound.

But it wasn’t just about clothes.

Yulia Kozluk, 28, who runs a fund that trains and then finds computer jobs for those on wheelchairs like herself, said she hoped such projects would help Ukrainian society grow up and accept those who are different.

“When I roll in my wheelchair, people stare me like I am an alien and it wounds,” said Kozluk, who became paralysed at age 23 after a car accident. “But I am not an alien, I am a regular person.”

Ukraine’s physically handicapped people are barely visible to the country at large, confined to their homes in the absence of ramps, elevators and specially equipped buses and mostly shunned by society in a grim legacy of the Soviet era.

Children with disabilities are usually hidden away in specialized schools or orphanages, where they are deprived of a chance to interact with other children and society as a whole does not learn to co-exist, accept and help those with disabilities. Only a handful of public schools accept disabled children, because building entrances, canteens and toilets are not equipped with ramps, teachers lack the necessary training and other students and often their parents often object to having such classmates.

In Kiev, home to tens of thousands of disabled children of school age, only about 10 schools provide inclusive education, according to Larisa Baida, an education activist with Ukraine’s National Assembly for Disabled.

“It’s sad,” said Baida. “It’s a constant struggle, every day they fight for their life.”

Universities also offer very few chances for the handicapped, lacking audio books for hearing-impaired and computers for the blind. Since gaining independence from the Soviet Union over 20 years ago, not a single book in the tactile writing system called Braille has been published for the visually impaired, according to the Assembly.

Finding a job is also a major problem, with about only 25 percent of the country’s disabled employed, mostly at low-skilled and low-paid jobs, according to the United Nations Development program.

“When we look at a disabled person, we are not ready to see a person in them” who wants to study, work and eat at restaurants, said Natalia Skripka, Assembly’s director. “While we should first be seeing a person and only then notice their peculiarities - are they tall or short, do they have blond or dark hair, do they have disabilities or not.”
