Activists during Ukraine's short-lived statehood of 1917-1920 are also on the list. A quarter of the top 100 is composed of Ukrainians alive today.
Unexpectedly, there are relatively few public Soviet figures, who only comprise 10 percent of the list, according to preliminary data, Kipiani said.
"It is surprising because it is recent history," he said. "It looks like the Soviet period has been driven out of Ukraine's consciousness. There are many plausible explanations for this. It may be due to discomfort and lack of freedom that was dominant during the Soviet times."
This says a lot about the Soviet Era Mistake
