The actor most known as the host of the EuroMaidan Revolution and 2004 Orange Revolution, Nyshchuk continues his acting career even after his appointment as minister on Feb. 27. It was at his recent mono-performance at “Suziriya” theater where famous TV host and celebrity interviewer Katya Osadcha took a hold of Nyshchuk and questioned him about his new job.
A theatrical actor, Nyshchuk made his first step into politics during the 2004 Orange Revolution. After that, he got the Honorary Artist of Ukraine award. Three months of being the voice of EuroMaidan stage events brought Nyshchuk the position of minister.
“I wasn’t doing any kind of election campaign at the Maidan and I wasn’t standing there because of politicians. Neither did Ukrainians. And certainly I wasn’t preparing for this position and I’ve been there not because of it,” the actor said.
