For example, what is more important: a record of 450 kilometres of new roads in two years (among them – the route “Odessa-Reni”) or what we have eliminated in the area turn on hemodialysis, so-called “line for life”? What to choose – launch of new educational projects, opening of schools, or the development of a network of modern branches of emergency medical aid in each district? A partial refund of loans to small and medium businesses, or the opening of sports fields across the region?
Or take tourism: the first time we came to about 6.3 million guests. It’s a lot or a little? I will say this is definitely not the limit! Because we just had a huge potential not only for beach holidays but also for gastronomy, medical tourism. Take a look at our Kuyalnik. The fact that it received the status of resort of national importance, is megavino decision. On the one hand, it protects the ecology of the estuary. And on the other – gives rise to attract investors. In fact, the year my initiative Kuyalnik underwent the procedure from design to law.

Who, in your opinion, is an exemplary regional leader? (examples from around the world): We can think of many world leaders who once supervised separate regions is a good management school. But I think respect deserves any local leader who was able to establish a comfortable life of the inhabitants that the system works, and not every one of them even knows the name of the mayor or the Governor.
The main problem of all Ukrainian regions, which need to be addressed first?: The lack of a system for strategic planning – at least 3-5 years. So people already knew what will the authorities do in a few years, what challenges will decide what her plan of action. To repair roads or schools does not depend on who today sits in the big chair.
If happiness is not in money, then what?: For me, definitely happiness in my family. My parents, wife, children, brother has always been and will remain a source of inspiration and pride. Any victory my children are my greatest victories. It is the family that inspires me and makes totally happy.

And believe me, its water, dirt is truly unique. Even the Dead sea travel is not necessary.
