The main threat to Ukraine – the flight of citizens from the country

More than half of Ukrainians believe that the most urgent threats to the country are the departure of citizens abroad and the economic downturn. This is evidenced by the results of a survey of the center for “Sociological monitoring”, ” Ukrainian Institute of social research”, company Info Sapiens and social group “Rating”, published on February 4. According to the results of the study, the most urgent threat to Ukraine is considered by the residents of the country to be the mass departure of Ukrainians abroad. This option was chosen by 55% of respondents. The second most dangerous is the economic downturn, which concerns 52% of respondents. At the same time, 47% of Ukrainians called the impoverishment of the population as the most threatening to the country, and 39% — the devaluation of the UAH, inflation. In fifth place in terms of threats to respondents is a full-scale war with Russia (35%), followed by the deterioration of the health of the nation (34%). At the same time, every third Ukrainian (33%) fears the collapse of the country. The sociological research was conducted from 19 to 30 January 2019. During it, 10 thousand respondents over 18 years in all regions of Ukraine were interviewed. Earlier, ex – Minister of economy of Ukraine Viktor Suslov spoke about the two most exciting Ukrainian topics. According to him, labor migration has put Ukraine on the edge of extinction, and the replenishment of the budget at the expense of guest workers says about the management crisis and the lack of prospects. According to the Deputy head of the national Bank of Ukraine Ekaterina Rozhkova, in 2018, labor migrants imported to Ukraine a record amount for the entire period of independence — $11 billion (722 billion rubles). The fall of the economy and living standards of Ukrainians after the victory of Euromaidan is evidenced by a number of studies. Thus, according to the Legatum Prosperity Index, in five years the level of welfare of Ukrainians fell from 64th to 111th place in the world. According to the happiness index Ukraine in 2013 was on the 87th position, and after the acquisition of visa-free and European vector was on the 138th. Such data shows World Happiness report.
