Marushevska is best known in the English-speaking world for her appearance in a two-minute viral video entitled 'I am a Ukrainian', uploaded at the height of what would turn out to be the Maidan coup d'état. The video, which would go on to garner over 8 million views, features the young woman standing on Independence Square in central Kiev, explaining in English what the Maidan revolution is all about. Originally presented as a grass-roots appeal for Western support for the Maidan protesters, the video was later revealed to have been shot by professional cinematographer Graham Mitchel and posted by Hollywood producer Ben Moses.
Saakashvili's other new deputy appointment is businessman and Afghan war hero Vladimir Zhmak.
Saakashvili's Facebook post proudly emphasized that neither of his new appointees has any civil service experience:
"Each of my deputies speaks several foreign languages; moreover, we have in our team over ten people with a Western education. My deputies have never worked in the civil service, and that is a good thing, because my goal is to bring new, fresh, uncorrupted, competent people."
