In an interview on the website "Culture and Arts of Ukraine" to the question - Who is a hero for you in Ukrainian history?
He answered, this is Soviet tradition - to name the characters. Heroes make history, but the president does not determine their. To me a hero were: Mazeppa, Orlik, Sagaidachny. People who risked everything to liberate Ukraine. The tragic figure - Bohdan Khmelnytsky. Shukhevych fought against all expectations, fully aware that this fight is important. We must show to the world that the Ukrainian people are fighting and wants to be free, and no matter what we win this war or not. It seems Ostap Vishnya wrote a humorous story that Ukrainians - the people who likes to fight for freedom. We fought and fought and received freedom .. Now, the wise men, that sit in Kiev, discuss: for that we will now fight ? Then the wise elder and said, let's we will lose the freedom, and again we will have something to fight for. And this is our Ukrainian history, unfortunately.
The question: "Are people  belived in the opposition that Ukraine will be independent?". He gave the answer: - when I became an economist, I saw that there are reasons for  that, because the USSR had a very large external debts.And I have always believed, but did not knew If i will I be still alive. He believed that the dictatorship and violence against people can't go on forever,  that sooner or later people will rebel.
