When we were together on the board of Transparency International Ukraine, Andrii Meleshevych was an example of a sequence of advocacy.
When we, together with Andrii, Daria Kalenyuk, and Oksana Nesterenko, built the NAUKMA Anti-Corruption Research and Education Centre, he was an example of activity and systemic approach.
When I invited him to become a member of the commission for the selection of the head of the DBR and then it failed because the majority wanted to see their puppet representatives there – he simply said that such experience is necessary.
The last time we talked, he asked for one thing – do not let me down.
I will not fail, Teacher.
Rest in peace.
