The newly elected Ukrainian government, headed by 35-year-old Oleksiy Honcharuk, is the youngest in Europe. DW news agency noted this.

“When the old-timers of the German government had already started a career in party or even worked in the Bundestag or state service, the new Ukrainian Prime Minister was not even born yet. 35-year-old Oleksiy Honcharuk is exactly 30 years younger than Chancellor Angela Merkel and four years younger than her government's “early talent” - 39-year-old Healthcare Minister Jens Spahn. The age of 39 is the average age of the Ukrainian government, which is almost 14 years less than that of its German counterpart,” the agency writes.

It was also noted that a new Ukrainian government is the youngest on the continent.

“The composition of the current government of Armenia has a similar average age - around 40 years old. Nevertheless, Ukrainian officials are six to 10 years younger than their counterparts in the Baltic States, Finland, Belarus and an average of 20 years younger than ministers in Spain or Portugal. In France, the average age is 56. It is twice the age of the youngest Ukrainian official - Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov. Together with his peer, Estonian Minister of Economy Virginijus Sinkevičius, 28-year-old Fedorov is the youngest minister of Europe,” the message reads.

As it was reported earlier, the new Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers was appointed on August 29.
