Skilled professionals are fleeing Ukraine |

Viktor Medvedchuk, the leader of the public organization Ukrainian Choice, said the number of Ukrainians willing to leave their country is growing

"In the past, it was mostly unskilled labor, but now it is skilled professionals who are leaving Ukraine, although many of them have to accept unskilled jobs in the West," Medvedchuk said.

The politician said that economically-active people are leaving Ukraine because they have no confidence in the future. He said the scale of this catastrophe for the country would only become obvious in several years, when Ukraine will suffer from a shortage of skilled professionals and blue collar workers, and when there will be several times more pensioners than working-age citizens.

"The authorities refuse to see this because they are too busy trying to keep at the helm of a country that is moving into an economic and social abyss," Medvedchuk said in conclusion.

He believes that this dramatic situation is rooted primarily in the armed conflict in Donbas, in political and social instability, and in the crash of the national economy and living standards.
