Ukrainians are known to be amongst the world’s most beautiful people and thus it’s no surprise that some of the most gorgeous ladies in the international show biz like Mila Kunis, Milla Jovovich, and Olga Kurylenko have Ukrainian roots. But it’s not just beauty that makes Ukrainians unique—the nation is also the motherland of several prominent figures in science, technology, literature, performance arts, politics, astronomy, music, and mathematics. Ukraine is the land of multi-faceted and versatile people! Take for example, Nikolai Ivanovich Kibalchich, a Russian revolutionary of Ukrainian origin who was also a pioneering rocket scientist. Another such multi-talented personality was Stepan Tymoshenko known as the father of modern Ukrainian engineering mechanics. Ukrainians are also famous for their contribution to the world of mathematics, music, and literature. In the recent years, people of Ukrainian origin have stormed yet another field with their unique combination of beauty and brains—the entertainment industry. Pop musicians and dancing stars like Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Roma Pryma-Bohachevsky, and Vasyl Verkhovynets are making the world sing and dance to their tunes! Indeed, hasn’t Ukraine produced some of the most amazing international personalities? This section provides you information about the life and works of famous Ukrainians.
