40 Ukrainian women who help their husbands develop and change Ukraine

On the eve of International Women's Day and the anniversary of the start of a full-scale war International Expert Club and rating agency EliteExpert in cooperation with experts in the field of social and cultural life presented their new project - "Women who inspire". It collects the stories of 40 Ukrainian women who help their husbands to develop and change Ukraine.

The well-known saying that behind every great man is a great woman took on a new meaning in 2022, when millions of Ukrainian women were simultaneously burdened by the terrible war that our country had not seen for 80 years.

This year has become a real test for tens of millions of people - but despite all the troubles, the separation and breakup of families, the extremely difficult conditions for business and the collapse of the economy, the values ​​characteristic of the Ukrainian people - loyalty, tenacity and courage - have become even brighter and stronger.

The ElitExpert rating agency collected the stories of forty women who inspire their husbands to achieve great things for our country. Each of them has one that gives meaning to life and creates a special atmosphere in which a man becomes successful.

At the same time, many heroines of our ranking are in the shadow of their husbands and were not known to the general public.
By the way, you should not be surprised to see the names of star women in the list. The fact is that even the most famous Ukrainian woman is someone's wife, and sometimes it happens that her husband is no less famous and successful. Therefore, we also decided to include such couples in our rating.

And the most important thing. We did not rank women according to the degree of their inspiration to their husbands, this is, of course, impossible. They limited themselves only to the spheres of their activity. With one single exception, all the experts, indisputably and unanimously, put first the collective image of a Ukrainian woman who is waiting from the front for a loved one - a husband, fiance, son or father.


The impact of women supporting their husbands on the front lines cannot be measured in words. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians who are now fighting at the front live, fight and even die primarily for their families.

Ukrainian woman

Each of the warriors, from a simple soldier to a general, fights for his wife, for his mother, for his bride, for his daughter - to save them, to protect them from death and destruction, to give them a future. Even in the most difficult moments of battle, men know that they simply have to return to their women. Come back alive.

And this silent feat of millions of Ukrainian women who, despite the rivers of tears shed and hundreds of sleepless nights, continue to inspire our men to victory - can never be forgotten.

Kristen Pazik

She was born on August 11, 1978 in Minneapolis (USA).

They met at one of the parties for Milan players. At that time, the beautiful Kristen was a friend of the son of the owner of the club Silvio Berlusconi - Pier Silvio. However, soon their relationship ended, and an affair began between Kristen and Andrii.

Their wedding took place on July 14, 2004 in Washington, where Shevchenko was on vacation. Now the couple has four sons: Jordan (2004), Christian (2006), Alexander (2012) and Ryder-Gabriel (2014).

She was born in 1969.

The future couple met right after school, while studying at a medical school. Since then, the couple has been together for 34 years, being a model of partnership.

Somehow they were almost destined to "die in one day", surviving the most destructive tsunami of the 21st century, in which more than half a million people died. It happened in 2004, during a vacation in Thailand, when they miraculously managed to survive, although they were injured.

Their only son Maksym was born in 1989 and is now a well-known Kyiv restaurateur.

Very little is known about the wife of the director of the Heart Institute, a world-renowned doctor who saved thousands of lives.

Having met her husband in her youth, the couple has been together for over 30 years.

At first, Olena had nothing to do with medicine and graduated from the Kyiv University of Trade and Economics. However, her husband later took her to his Heart Institute, where she still holds one of the administrative positions.

The couple has two children who continued the family dynasty. Daughter Natalya became a cardiologist, and son Mykhailo a cardiac surgeon, like his father.

Kateryna's mustache

The husband is Olympic champion, undefeated world boxing champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Ekaterina Usyk

She was born in 1986.

Kateryna Khmelevska and Oleksandr Usyk met while still at school, and immediately after graduation they started dating and lived in a civil marriage for the next four years. The couple got married only in 2009, when Kateryna was already expecting her first child, daughter Elizaveta.

Currently, the Usyki family is considered one of the strongest "star couples" in Ukraine.

"I don't give reasons for jealousy at all. She too. My dream is to live with my wife for many years and celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary," Oleksandr Usyk says, and he still dedicates poems to his beloved.

Kateryna is a happy mother who raises three children - daughter Elizaveta (2010) and two sons Kyril (2013) and Mykhailo (2015).
