The participants will discuss how charity can become an object of manipulations, why politicians create charity funds, whether one can win elections through philanthropic activity, and whether philanthropy unrelated to elections exists at all. Representatives of charity funds named after politicians as well as journalists and members of international observer organizations will take part in the discussion.
Hanna Starostenko, representative of the “UDAR” fraction in Kyiv City Council and director of Klitschko Brothers Foundation will also take part in the event. She emphasizes that “Vitaliy and Volodymyr Klychko separate their political and their philanthropic activities. For them, these are two parallel roads to basic changes in the society, which use completely different tools and methods”.
