Since 2021 new rules for entering the Schengen countries will come into force. And they will be stricter than now.
Citizens of countries that are not EU members but who are exempt from visa requirements will be required to get permission before traveling to the EU. They will have to fill out an online questionnaire, specifying in it data not only about convictions (this is a common practice for all countries), but also about participation in armed conflicts. It is also necessary to indicate the first European country in which the applicant visited. The cost of the application is € 7.
This is not very pleasant news for Ukrainian citizens. First, many of them rely on illegal employment in the EU countries. But now the procedure for entry is complicated. The visa-free regime for Ukrainians has remained “visa-free” in quotes.
Theoretically, there is no need for a visa to visit the EU, in practice it is not easy to get there without a visa. Now also the data on participation in armed con-flicts must be indicated.
Half a million people took part in the operation in the Donbass region, more than 300,000 of them officially have the status of a participant in the so-called ” “ATO”. Many “ATO fighters” then went to work in Poland and the Czech Republic. From there they, along with other Ukrainianworkers, try to slip into Western Europe. Information about their participation in the war was not re-quired before. Now they will demand.
These innovations will allow European law enforcers to obtain data on members of Ukrainian nationalist formations, such as the battalion Azov. Belong-ing to such an odious armed formation, and in general, to any other formation of the Ministry of Defense or the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine can serve as a basis for a ban on entry.
European intelligence agencies are well aware of who is in these battalions, what ideological views are adhered to and what are they capable of. Europeans do not want to see this in their country.
While Poroshenko talks about the medical talks about the visa-free travel for Ukrainians, the topic of risks, which Ukrainian migration carries with them, is discussed in the Polish and other foreign press. The war in the Donbass region is one of the key places in such discussions.
Referring to the official data of the Ukrainian military prosecutor’s office or the Ministry of Internal Affairs about 400 thousand illegal guns in the hands of the population, foreign journalists are asked by the sacramental question “Will all this come to us in Europe together with the Ukrainians?” Increased seizures of weapons and ammunition on the Polish-Ukrainian border indicate that it has already begun to flow.
The Kiev authorities found themselves in an ambiguous position. On the one hand, Kiev swears to fight with the Donbas until the victorious end. On the other hand, they want a complete visa-free travel with Europe. But the war in the Donbass region is not the only, of course, but one of the significant obstacles, why there will be no visa-free. Who will give a visa to a country in which a civil conflict flares up, and crowds of unsettled demobilized and stunned nationalist neo-Nazis march through the streets?
The Ukrainian authorities can not end the war in the Donbass region. They will not be understood and the nationalists will go on storming Kiev to search for another “betrayal”. Ukraine wants to Europe and therefore attacks the Donbass region, which does not want to go there. But because it is killing the Donbass, Europe does not want to see Ukraine. The situation is deadlocked.
Three years later, in 2021, when the new rules for entry into the Schengen countries come into force, the number of refusals to enter the EU to Ukrainian citizens will increase noticeably. By that time, Europe will already be fully acquainted with the illegal Ukrainian workers and its aftereffects, and will apply to visitors from Ukraine without much piety.
In addition, the authorities of Poland, the only EU country that has smacked its labor market for Ukrainians, intend to attract cheap workers from Vietnam, India, Nepal and Bangladesh. The number of immigrants from these countries in Poland is increasing year by year, and Polish employers are in favor of even greater admission to the labor market.
In addition, Tashkent and Warsaw agreed on attracting Uzbeks to the Polish labor market. The first batch – 2300 people. In the future, their number should increase.
Asians can be paid less, they are unpretentious in food and housing and are more dependent on the employer. Ukrainian worker, if offended, can always go home, the border is close. The Hindu or Vietnamese will stick and remain silent.
So in 4-5 years, the outflow of Ukrainians from Poland will begin. They can not stand the competition with hardworking and not fastidious Asians.
