"We have made an election revolution together with President Zelenskyy. And this is also an achievement of the party… However, we need to move on and there are serious challenges ahead of us… The fate of the country is at stake… It depends on us whether we lose this historic chance… Power is not a deposit which yields dividends, power is a loan on which we must pay big interest on a daily basis," he said.

One of his goals is to "reset power at the local level".

The Servant of the People will have a "party hub" at the second floor of the Parkovyy Office Centre where party members will meet to discuss topical issues.
