Natalia Yuriivna Korolevska (Ukrainian: Наталія Юріївна Королевська) (born 18 May 1975 in Krasnyi Luch[4]) is a Ukrainian politician[5] and member of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament).



Korolevska was born in the former USSR in 1975, her father was a miner, her mother a teacher.[6] Korolevska graduated from the East Ukraine Volodymyr Dahl National University in 1997[7][8] and the Donetsk State Academy of Management in 2002 (speciality "Manager of organizations").[3] From 1992 Korolevska worked in several management functions, earning a "Leader of middle business" award in 2004.[3]

Political career

From 2002 until 2006 Korolevska was a deputy of the Luhansk regional parliament. During the Presidential election 2004 she supported Victor Yanukovich.[9][10] Korolevska became a member of All-Ukrainian Union "Fatherland" (a part of Bloc Yulia Tymoshenko) in autumn 2005 because "she is sure that the block of Yulia Tymoshenko is the future".[9] Korolevska decided to enter national politics: "I knew the most complex problems of the Donbass and sincerely wanted to solve them, but saw and understood that it is impossible to do at the level of the regional council.[11] It is in this spirit that I arrived in the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament) in 2006. Disappointment came quickly enough: it seems that everyone here is well aware of the difficulties, but nobody makes an attempt resolve them and to help the people."[11] During the 2006 and 2007 parliamentary elections, she was elected as a deputy to the Verkhovna Rada. Korolevska is the current chairman of the committee on issues of industrial and regulatory policy and entrepreneurship in the Verkhovna Rada.[7][12][13][14][15]

Political positions

“Almost 20 years spent talking about European values and the principles of democracy has lead us to the world of illusions and double standards”

Korolevska during the Yalta European Strategy conference 2011[16]

Korolevska political goal is "to create an efficient, transparent and stable economy".[17] She claims to stand for political reforms to combat poverty and corruption.[17] Korolevska wants to involve the non-government sector more in decision-making.[16]

Cultural and political image

Korolevska is seen as a representative of the upcoming generation of political leaders of Ukraine.[16] In 2007 "Focus" magazine placed Korolevska 66th in a survey investigating the most influential women of Ukraine.[18] In 2009 she reached the 9th spot in that survey (six places higher than the Minister of Labor and Social Policy Lyudmyla Denisova);[19] "in 2009 she increased her presence in the coal market of Ukraine", according to Focus.[20]
