On numerous Russian political talk shows, Olesya Yakhno is a frequent guest, whose biography is quite specific. She positions herself as a Ukrainian independent journalist, but this is not entirely true. Olesya - or Alesya - often speaks out against what the other guests of the programs are discussing. What is behind these statements - the desire to adhere to the truth or the banal thirst for PR?
Olesya is from the Vinnitsa region, namely from the city of Nemirov. This city gave its name to the well-known vodka brand, for which it is mainly used for deductions. He founded a distillery in 1872, Count Stroganov.
There is practically no information about Alesya's parents in open sources. It is only known that they worked in the public service.
In social networks, Olesya prefers to keep silent about her hometown, calling Kyiv as her birthplace.
After graduating from high school Olesya studied at the Kiev Institute of Journalism, referring to the National University. Shevchenko. Then, for some time, Olesya studied in the magistracy.
The next place of study is the Academy of Tax Service, where she received the specialty "public finances".
In 2006 she defended her thesis on the topic: "Ukraine in the modern geopolitical space: the political and media aspect." That is, political scientist Olesya Yakhno (biography of the witness) must be at least an educated and erudite person.
As a journalist, Olesya has been known since the end of 1990, when she began working as a special correspondent for the newspaper Golos Ukrainy. This is the official printed edition of the Verkhovna Rada, which publishes decrees, resolutions and other documents. That is, the first reports by a novice journalist could conduct a maximum from the meeting room of the official authority.
Since September 2005, Olesya has been the director of the Institute of National Strategy of Ukraine. In the sphere of interests of this institute such important things as state ideology, communications within the country, branding, internal and external vectors of the development of the state, political technologies.
How did Oles Yakhno achieve such success? Biography - namely, existing kinship - gives the answer.
In social networks Olesya is designated as Yakhno-Belkovskaya. Olesya Yakhno, whose biography is closely connected with Russia, expresses only in words a negative attitude towards a great country.
Olesya's husband is a Russian political technologist, Muscovite Stanislav Belkovsky. Occurs from a Polish-Jewish family, a systems engineer by education, who received a diploma during the Soviet era at the Moscow Institute of Management.
Work began in 1985 as a system administrator in a Russian state oil company. Then he became a political consultant, began to work closely with Berezovsky, Khakamada, Weibairg and other liberals.
Evil tongues say that it is to Berezovsky that he owes his popularity and financial freedom. There are persistent rumors that Belkovsky represented the interests of a fugitive in Russia.
He consistently created the APS, the Institute of National Strategy of Russia, collaborates with the Dozhd channel, leads the author’s column in Moskovsky Komsomolets. An active blogger, a supporter of the separation of the Caucasus from Russia. Experts point out that the main occupation of Belkovsky is a political outrage, an absolutely unprincipled use of any political technology.
Political analyst Olesya Yakhno, whose biography in recent years is directly related to events in Ukraine, picked up the initiative of her husband and headed the Institute of National Strategy of Ukraine, founded by him in 2004, right under the first maidan.
Many people call Belkovsky a professional fundraiser or a person who collects funds for specific purposes.
What is noticeable Olesya
Most of his performances on Russian TV channels. Because nothing else can be found - neither publications, nor coherent opinions, nor even high-quality journalistic reports. There is only a blog that Olesya leads on the “Ukrainian Truth”. Olesya Yakhno, a biography whose family assumes at least a good mastery of the word, allows herself such pearls as “the proletarianization of the intelligentsia”, the “cyganicity of politicians”, the “civilized format of nationalism”, the “sin of intellectuality” and the like.
To understand what exactly Olesya wants to say to readers is extremely difficult. Thoughts are wrapped around one another, glide and fly away. That is a lot of words, but there is no meaning. There are only statements that are not subject to the discussion of the type "in the east resides the underclass".
It seems that inside it - the emptiness. He speaks a lot and for a long time, but about nothing. This seems to many viewers Olesya Yahno. Biography, family, children - separately, and the verbal chatter lives by itself.
All this would be funny if Olesya, through her husband, was not involved in the 2004 Orange Revolution. Belkovsky, by his own admission, was a consultant to Berezovsky on this event in Ukraine.
The pain, war, and the difficulties that we all go through now are largely due to the appearance of the movement to which Olesya Yakhno was involved. Demonstration of the suffering of people does not cause her the slightest spiritual movement, witnessed by millions of Russian-speaking television viewers around the world.
