The Ethnic Background of Ruslana, Our Heroine of Ukraine!

Ruslana Lyzhychko, known to Eurovision fans just as Ruslana, did a lot more than bring Eurovision to Ukraine with her wildly popular 2004 winning entry, “Wild Dances.” She’s won the World Music Award and holds the title of People’s Artist of Ukraine; she served in the Ukrainian government and as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador; she was included in the Forbes magazine top 10 most influential women of 2013; the US Secretary of State honored her with the International Women of Courage Award in 2014; she was named an honorary citizen of her hometown of Lviv. She has been involved in numerous charity and environmental activism projects.

The pure energy and history of Ruslana’s homeland, Ukraine, is infused in the DNA of her music, choreography, and singing—as well as in her own. Her DNA results reflect her admirable devotion to Ukraine in particular and to humanity as a whole: Ruslana is 65.8% East European, 18.4% Baltic, and 15.8% Balkan.
