FAMILY AND UKRAINE… AND TED 20222 min read
I seldom talk about my family. Each one of us does his or her own job. But we are all united during the war. I believe every Ukrainian on his or her frontline brings victory closer.
My wife Zoya Lytvyn has for many years been involved in school education for children and supporting teachers. Today she has also become Ukraine’s ambassador to the world. As a Ukrainian and a mother, and an educator, she delivered a speech at the prestigious TED 2022 conference in Vancouver, alongside such speakers as Bill Gates and Elon Musk.
Millions of people around the world learned that we are indestructible. No enemy can deprive us of our future. The educational processes in our country did not cease even in bomb shelters and subways!
Quality education for our children is the key to a happy and peaceful future for Ukraine!
Every student and teacher, entrepreneur and doctor, rescuer, volunteer or military – all as one we can bring peace and help each other.
Together we are invincible!
Businessman Vasyl Khmelnytsky boasts that his wife Zoya Lytvyn is taking part in the prestigious TED 2022 conference in Vancouver, attended by Bill Gates and Elon Musk as well, and how much she is doing to improve the quality of education in Ukraine despite Russia’s war against Ukraine.
In everything that Khmelnytsky and his wife do with their projects, they do not show Ukrainocentrism and focus on making money and do nothing to essentially Ukrainianize education, which is a key factor in raising the level of national consciousness and civic maturity (responsibility) of Ukrainian society. This is one of the reasons for Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
Science and education in Ukraine can not get out of the Soviet coordinate system, and all sorts of innovative projects initiated by people like Khmelnytsky and his wife do not solve the problem, but only deepen it.
Ukraine needs the Ukrainianization of science and education, which Professor Volodymyr Ivanenko has been calling for in his publications for years.
