Vadim Valerievich Tryukhan is a Ukrainian diplomat and public figure. Among the famous experts who "settled" on Russian television, he stands out for his appearance and behavior. A well-fed citizen with a forelock is an ardent Russophobe who defends the interests of his country and the European path of development it has chosen.
Vadim Tryukhan was born in the Zaporozhye region in 1972. The child graduated well from school and retained a love of knowledge for a long time. The thirst for knowledge led to the fact that the young man received several educations. In 1997 he was awarded a red diploma from the Institute of Oriental Studies and International Relations. He continued his further studies at the College of International Security in Germany. This was followed by a master's degree in management from the National Academy, which Vadim received in 2001. The pinnacle of education was postgraduate studies. Truchan is fluent in English and Croatian.
The international specialist began his career in the diplomatic service. He worked in various positions, dealt with legal, foreign policy and issues of European integration. In 2010, he became ambassador-at-large at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. Three years later, he headed the work of the Foreign Economic Department of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy. After his dismissal, he took up analytics at the International Center for Advanced Study. Tryukhan received high ranks of an official and a diplomat.
Since 2014, a stage of active social activity began in Tryukhan's biography. He headed the political council of the "Power of the People" organization, which was guided by the principle "power for people, not people for power." The organization set itself the goal of creating a strong Ukrainian state in which people would decide how to live. Since 2015, Tryukhan has headed the board of the European Movement of Ukraine organization. Two years later, he became a member of the public council under the Ministry of Information Policy.
Vadim's private life is in the shadows. It is known that he has underage son and daughter. The politician himself is a divorce.
How does he live today
Recently, the figure of Tryukhan has become public. He is a frequent guest on Russian television talk shows. Vadim takes a tough and principled pro-Ukrainian position. For many, the persona of a statesman and politician is annoying. He was not noticed in fights, no one dares to enter into a fight with an outwardly rather strong man who is able to stand up for himself. Despite the abundance of formations, he is boorish, communicates with opponents insolently, forgetting about elementary ethics. Even during a minute of silence on one of the television broadcasts, his hatred and Russophobia prevailed, for which the guest was removed from the studio.
Vadim Valerievich's optimism surprises and amazes. Not paying attention to the problems that are present in Ukraine, he believes that everything is fine in his country. Probably, this demeanor is an attempt to return to power and big politics.
