Nominating Criteria

Ruslana's victory at the Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul in May 2004 has also become a victory for poor and disenfranchised Ukrainians. Ruslana's talent and dedicated humanitarian work have given them voice.

Ms. Lyzhychko is heralded as a champion of humanitarian causes. She has committed herself to the fight against human trafficking and violence against women and also to defending issues of child welfare. In recognition of these efforts, UNICEF has named her Good Will Ambassador of Ukraine.

"It is the public's duty to relieve the suffering which was inflicted on the flooded areas of Ivano-Frankivs'k and Chernivetskiy". This was her rallying cry when she called upon other influential Ukrainians to take the lead in relief efforts. She led by example in donating her time and resources. But her efforts didn't stop there. Ruslana also relieved the suffering by personally delivering kind words as well as direly needed goods and medical supplies to the flood's victims. She dedicated herself to making certain a sense of dignity was returned tothe flood victims.

It has already passed, right? But it seems to me, at that time Ruslana was in Ukraine.

This was before Ruslana's North America tour. It wasn't mentioned in the main site blog. Maybe it wasn't mention, because she didn't attend the event.

Yes, looks like it. She was in America from 16th July until about 4th August.

I agree with you. Informations by Alexandru were usually not reliable. Such a thing would be proudly announced on the main site otherwise.

It is correct. I do not know, but it seems to me, Ruslana's office would write this in the news section about this award. May be the event has got some changes.

As Ruslana obviously didn't attend the event, maybe the office "forgot" to mentioon it on the main site. Or the event didn't take place. Who knows.
