General information

All-Ukrainian Civic Association “Successful Ukraine” (“Uspishna Ukraina”) is a nonpolitical All-Ukrainian civic organization (NGO) which was established in August, 2004 on initiative of a group of people concerned with the destiny of Ukrainian people. Businessmen Yuriy Boyko and Olexandr Ostryk, a state employee Volodymyr Vorobyov, a medical worker Galyna Soborova and an attorney in law Stanislav Kharlanov became founders of the organization.

The main goal of the creation of this organization is to unify our citizens’ efforts in favoring the accomplishment of a “large jump” of our country and its transformation into a developed democratic state with a civilized market economy in 10 years — a Successful Ukraine, where a majority of the citizens would be satisfied with the level of life and proud of their Motherland.

We contribute to the development of the civil society in Ukraine, support and evolve initiatives which are aimed at attainment of personal and social success, upbringing of citizens’ dignity and protection of their rights, making appropriate conditions for the successful business by means of conducting reform of Ukrainian tax system and other extremely necessary reforms.

Unfortunately current experience of activities of political parties and political elite of Ukraine demonstrates their incapability in consolidating society and leading it to success. The UCA “Successful Ukraine” unites citizens, who don’t want be involved into politics because of different reasons, but want to improve life in Ukraine: these are socially active representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, state employees, scientists, educators and others, who want to work efficiently under any authority and don’t want to depend on it. This way, to our mind, is the shortest one in gaining the civil society status: only successful citizens who went through the protection of their own property and rights will eventually help society to “give birth” to the real political elite.        

Main directions of our activity

  1. Promotion of the idea of the organization’s final goal in the society: society unification, efforts synergy, a “large jump” with the aim of transforming Ukraine into a developed competitive democratic state as soon as possible.
  2. Elaboration and approval of the Strategy of the development of Ukraine. The UCA “Successful Ukraine” supposes, that Ukraine will be able to develop in a European way and accomplish a “large jump”, if the Strategy will be elaborated and ratified on the legislative level. The Strategy would foresee principle positions of the external and internal politics, directions in building up the state irrespective of the government, which in at power at that time. A frequent change of the governments, chaos in the directions of the external and internal politics deprives Ukrainian of the answer to the question: “What country do we build?” and is one of the main factors of instability in Ukraine. This is why The UCA “Successful Ukraine” initiates the elaboration and ratification of the Strategy of the development of Ukraine.
  3. Reformation of the tax system of Ukraine. We strongly believe that existent system of taxes is one of the main reasons of the slow development of the Ukrainian economy, braking of the initiatives of the domestic businesses; it is a huge space for the blooming of the corruption and black economy. The organization is in the process of implementing a global project “Tax evolution” and its first component “Lobbying of the tax  reform of in the bodies of authority”. 
  4. Support of the activity and development of the public councils and other public advisory organizations under executive authority bodies. Work experience of the members of the UCA “Successful Ukraine” in public councils convinces us that they are one of the most effective forms of the cooperation of businesses and other sectors of the society with government, that is, civilized lobbying for citizens own interests.     
  5. Favoring the expansion of the transparency in the activities of the bodies of power of Ukraine and counteraction to corruption in all its manifestations. We prepared a number of projects which are aimed at the counteraction to corruption in Ukraine, expansion of openness and transparency of the government (“Elimination of nonconformity of delegated legislation of the state bodies with the legislation in force and international acts ratified by Ukraine as a mechanism of prevention of corruption phenomena manifestations”, “Implementation of the mechanism of realizing the rights of a citizen in receiving information for working out analytical materials and proposals based on them regarding amending the Ukraine’s legislation in force for the expansion of transparency and openness of the bodies of power, etc.” ).      
  6. Favoring the growth of the competitiveness of a person, a family, a company, a region and in such a way ensuring the creation of the developed and competitive state. In 2007 we realized that our work on the level of the central authority is low in efficiency, that is why we make an emphasis on the affairs of particular people, companies and especially in the regions of Ukraine.
  7. Overall support and protection of the rights of citizens of Ukraine. We gained success in protection the rights of the representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, we plan on developing a new direction — protection of state employees rights. We consider that both of these categories of the Ukrainian citizens should be independent of the politicians and government and attempt to guarantee the growth of stability in Ukrainian society with the help of progress in this direction of the activities. 
  8. Environment protection.  We were successful in winning a number of legal cases regarding this subject and we favor expansion of a national parks network.
