Labour activity[edit]

During his student years, Igor Ribakov created an enterprise in Odessa, which brought significant success in business. It was during this period that significant capital was earned thanks to almost round-the-clock work.

The beginning of the career of a successful businessman was the Ozon company, which carried out wholesale trade in drinks and food products, having over 20% of the shares in terms of supply in the Ukrainian market. Then Igor Ribakov opened a new line of business, establishing a group of companies – Ilmetservice, Ferrum Service, Metal Service, Sheder Metal Service, and Shipping Service, that reaches an international level and are engaged in the procurement, transportation, processing, and wholesale sale of various metals.

The company's monthly turnover was over $20 million.

In March 2005, Igor Ribakov created the public organization "People's Initiative - Project Car Run".

During his work in Odessa, thanks to Igor Ribakov, social-economic indicators in the assigned district improved, and the standard of living of socially unprotected miles of the population was raised.

In his interviews with domestic media, Ribakov noted that he, as the head of the Interfactional Association, “declared war on smugglers and corrupt customs officers,” and the association “does a lot of work to combat smuggling, to fill the state budget through the relevant customs transfers”.

In June 2008, Igor Ribakov announced his withdrawal from the ruling coalition. The deputy explained his step by the unwillingness to put up with the fact that the parliamentary coalition "created a "roof" overshadow structures, corruption schemes for plundering the country."

In 2009, Igor Ribakov created and headed a new parliamentary faction "REFORMS FOR THE FUTURE", which, in fact, became the sixth faction of the Ukrainian Parliament. Soon, the faction "REFORMS FOR THE FUTURE"[4][circular reference] was officially registered in the Ukrainian Parliament.
