Forum on Ukrainian Economy in Kaniv
The three-day Ukrainian ID forum in Kaniv is meant to conclude with the creation of a paper by participants titled 'The Constitution of Values'
“We should think about what kind of Ukraine we want to see in five, ten, 15 or 50 years. And then we can reach this goalpost. If there’s no goalpost to aim for, there’ll be no success,” forum organizer Natalia Zabolotna said.
The ID Awards ceremony concluded the opening day of the forum. Last year, this award for contribution into humanitarian and cultural development of Ukraine was bestowed upon Ukrainian director, activist and political prisoner of the Kremlin, Oleh Sentsov. This year the statue was posthumously awarded to a young politician and anti-corruption activist Kateryna Handziuk. She died last year after a group of attackers poured acid into her face.
“I want to award this prize to Kateryna and to honour her memory here in Kaniv. And let this also be an award condemning violence against women,” journalist Anna Nemtsova said.
