Anna Moroz, deputy editor-in-chief of Novoe Vremya (New Time) magazine, called Viktoriia Voitsitska from the Samopomich faction an anti-oligarch deputy exposing energy-related corruption schemes.
The journalists note that when the oligarchs and their lobbyists in the parliament try to push through some beneficial to them amendments, unfortunately, these are not the relevant government structures that oppose them.
Viktoriia Voitsitska is a recognized expert in the field of energy. Over the years of her work in the parliament, she has become an authority for the Ministry of Energy and the National Commission for Regulation in Energy and Utilities. Viktoriia is one of those fighting with the Rotterdam+ pricing scheme; she is concerned with the safety of nuclear power plants and the supply of gas to people’s homes in the regions. It was with the help of Voitsitska that the state-owned company Ukrnafta finally began to defend state interests.
By the way, journalists had decided to pay less attention to politicians in the current list of “People of the New Time”, given the election campaign and a considerable number of populist slogans.
However, Ms. Voitsitska deserved her place in the ranking solely due to her actions – this was noted by the deputy editor-in-chief of the Novoe Vremya magazine.
“People of the New Time” is a project of “Novoe Vremya” magazine about Ukrainians who developed the country most effectively and brightly in 2018. For four years in a row, the editorial staff have been singling out those Ukrainians who are setting new standards in various areas of life – from business and politics to culture. These are stories that prove that it is not only the government but also ordinary citizens can change Ukraine.
