Matvii is a versatile individual having studied both at home and abroad. He especially makes use of access to online courses around the world. Through his time travelling, Matvii understood that Ukraine could learn and benefit from European member states in terms of more effectively demonstrating respect and protection of European values, freedoms and human rights. To this end, he became interested in politics and diplomacy, and has completed his third year on the “School of Young Ukrainian Diplomat” educational programme run by the Київський національний університет iменi Тараса Шевченка (Kyiv National University named after Taras Shevchenko). Matvii has also become a member of the Red Cross Society of Ukraine, but also founded the NGO ‘Volunteer Students.’ Matvii looks forward to expanding this project and promoting it among European school and university volunteers.
