Ukrainian government – is the youngest in Europe

Censor.net: With an average age of 39, the new Ukrainian government is now the youngest in Europe. Censor.net reported that the new Ukrainian government is the youngest in Europe, with a reference to DW. “When the old-timers of the German government had already started their political careers or worked in the Bundestag or the civil service, the new Ukrainian prime minister was not even born yet. 35-year-old Oleksiy Honcharuk is 30 years younger than Chancellor Angela Merkel and four years younger than German Health Minister Jens Spahn.

After analysing the structure of the European governments, DW came to the conclusion that the new government of Ukraine is the youngest on the continent. The middle age of the current government in Armenia is about 40 years old. But Ukrainian officials are six to ten years younger than their colleagues from the Baltic States, Finland and Belarus, and on average 20 years younger than ministers in Spain or Portugal. In France, the average age is 56 years. This is twice the age of the youngest Ukrainian official – Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation Mikhail Fedorov. Fedorov, 28, is the youngest minister in Europe.
