About 3.2 million Ukrainians work abroad

About 3.2 million Ukrainians work abroad, Social Policy Minister Andriy Reva told reporters Tuesday. Using a commonly accepted figure of 20 million for the national workforce, this means that 16.5% of Ukraine’s workers are outside the country. Reva added that up to 9 million Ukrainians travel abroad every year for seasonal work. He did not clarify if some people were counted twice. Now did he clarify if this 9 million is in addition to Ukrainians working permanently overseas. Either way, with the EU raising barriers to African and Arab immigrants, Ukraine is emerging as a major source for guest workers.
