Kyiv Post - - Independen­ce Special - BY OLENA GONCHAROVA [email protected]

Be­ing born in 1991, the year Ukraine de­clared its in­de­pen­dence from the Soviet Union, many of Ukraine’s “chil­dren of in­de­pen­dence” are now fight­ing for a bet­ter coun­try on all fronts.

They’ve wit­nessed ev­ery­thing from cur­rency de­val­u­a­tion in the 1990s and two revo­lu­tions, in 2004 and 2013, to Rus­sia’s an­nex­a­tion of Crimea and the start of Rus­sia’s war on Ukraine in the Don­bas, which has now been rag­ing for more than three years.

Raised over two tu­mul­tuous decades, th­ese 26-year-old Ukraini­ans are ones to look out for in fu­ture.
