The life of Ukrainian Youth
Nowadays when our independent state Ukraine is
developing, much attention is paid for our youth because
we are the future of our country. In today’s Ukraine,
people aged between 15 and 28 number a little less than
10 million, and their ration is dropping. Some 80
percent of the younger generation various physical
malfunctions. Among the problems most actually for our
Youth are low personal income, low parent’s take-home
pay, and bad living conditions because of our current
economical situation. Youth problems are caused not only
by today’s economic hardships. The worst destabilising
factor in the modern Ukrainian community is the crisis
of consciousness and cultural and moral values.
Nevertheless our youth take active part in life of
community. For example in Greenpeace young people learn
to love their land and the world that surrounds them.
This organisation protest against environmental
pollution, against murder of all animals. Some young
people work in their church organisations. Future
belongs to the young, that is why the political life of
our country is important to us. Many young people are
engaged is political parties and organisations such as:
“the greens”, the Union of Ukrainian Youth, the Scouts.
