“If you focus on the official data of the National Bank of Ukraine, the Ukrainians transferred from Poland to Ukraine in 2019 — 3.8 billion dollars, and in 2018, 3.6 billion dollars. That is, we see a rapid increase in 2 times of the expenses of Ukrainians on the territory of Poland, whereas the translation in Ukraine is almost not increased”, — stated in the message.
Such a trend analysts believe is negative for Ukraine’s economy. “She suffers not only from lack of labour, but also that Ukrainians increasingly prefer Polish products, but do not increase the money transfer to Ukraine, where they would have spent on the purchase of goods of Ukrainian producers”, — said the owner of the company Gremi personal Yevgeny Kirichenko.
