Here is my brief profile:

Government job (Ukraine) - 1.5 years (work with international economic organizations, manage a technical assistance project (jointly with the
local United Nations office) with a budget of more than 0.5 mln USD (hire scientists to conduct research, organize conferences and seminars, organize visits of foreign experts to Ukraine, lead work on translation of Ukraine's foreign trade legislature into English), member of an intergovernmental working party, lead work on trade facilitation with the country's business cycles, participate in negotiations on creation of Free Trade agreements with other countries ). Have other achievements at work, recently promoted.

Swimming (first-class degree, participated in international competitions); head of the debate club at the university, have supported the club after graduation, convener and organizer of multiple international debating competitions hosted by my university, represented the university in debating championships in Europe; editor-in-chief of the University's newspaper; now help an animal shelter at home, do community work, etc

Post-MBA area of specialization: enterpreneurship

I'm highly motivated to apply for an MBA program, but I am not sure how b-schools may perceive my work experience and what schools I should target. Now considering the following schools: Booth/Wharton/Stanford/Columbia/Kellogg (Category 1), Tepper/Cornell/Olin/Emory/Kenan-Flagler (Category 2).

Also, I am not sure whether I should retake the GMAT.

Thank you in advance!

Looking good my friend!
Fist of all, FORGET about retaking the GMAT. You have a 720! Your score is higher than the mean GMAT at all schools. How much higher do you need? :)
You did your job there dude, so now it's time to attack those essays. I feel like you have a lot of nice solid work, with some good activities on the side, and there is no reason why you shouldn't be competitive at the Tier 1 schools you listed. Plus, B-schools do not see many applicants from the Ukraine (you are only the second I have seen, and I've seen thousands :) ) so you ARE unique!

With applying to your list of Tier 1§ schools, plus two from your Tier 2, with a strong application, you should be able to come back with some very sweet results indeed...

Good luck to you!
