Interview with Ukrainian Political Expert – Anna Rohova
Anna Rohova is a Member of the Board “First International Ukrainian Foundation of Development” and an expert on environmental and energy security in international relations
Hello Anna Rohova, Welcome to WorldAuthors.Org!
Anna tell us what exactly influenced your desire to become an expert in the field of ecology and energy?
I was born in the industrial city of Shostka, which is located in the north of Ukraine. Back in my school years, I wanted to change the ecological situation in our city.
In Soviet times, my city was an important center of the chemical industry and the military industry (“Impulse”, “Zvezda”). The Impulse enterprise, specializing in the manufacture of ammunition, is one of the strategically important facilities of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. Also “Zvezda” is included in the list of strategically important enterprises in Ukraine.
Therefore, I have chosen a professional path to help my city in the future.
Tell us about your personal scientific experience?
At the moment I already have higher education (Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv – Political Science Department). This year I started Master Degree Program “Environmental and energy security in international relations”. Also took courses in public administration in the United States (Harvard University).
This year one of my articles was published in Cognum Publishing House. London, United Kingdom.
In what ways is it possible to combat global warming?
The problem of global warming is one of the most pressing problems of our time, and we know that we must respond to it with all seriousness.
So far, I think the best option would be to use natural mechanisms to mitigate the effects of climate change. But I believe that more radical approaches to solving these problems are quite legitimate.
If we simply reduce our emissions, we will only achieve that global warming will slow down. And this is bad, because even now the average temperature of the planet is too high and we already have too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

I. promotion and protection of the image of Ukraine and the Ukrainian economy;
