Vitali Klitschko got into politics tired of the regime that dominated his country, he left the ring to fight for his fellow citizens: Right now all my concentration is on the politics of Ukraine, declared this son of a Soviet soldier born in Kyrgyzstan when he decided in mid month to concentrate exclusively on his tasks as leader of the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform (UDAR) party. Vitali was seen walking and fighting through the streets of kyiv alongside protesters calling for his country's rapprochement with the European Union. He also expressed his solidarity with the Orange Revolution, after the fraudulent presidential elections of 2004. But almost ten years after those days of political instability, Vitali Klitschko is now much more involved than ever in the destiny of his country. In fact, he leads the 40 deputies that his party has in Parliament after the 2012 elections, in which UDAR participated for the first time after seeing the light of day in 2010. His beginnings as a politician and the bulk of his sports career were spent in Germany, a country that has seen him grow, above all, as a boxing star. His trail is only comparable to that of his brother Vladimir, also a world boxing champion.o.
