This power is advantageous for mass emigration from Ukraine - no need to create jobs, the country receives currency and fewer people participate in elections. Co-chairman of the OPPOSITION BLOC faction in the parliament Oleksandr Vilkul wrote this on his Facebook page.
"Ukraine does not need power, whose representatives calmly and cynically state the terrible statistics about the millions of Ukrainians who are forced to leave abroad to feed their families somehow. Ukraine needs a power that will correct these statistics, creating conditions for life and work, persuading people to return, giving hope and a sense of prospects for young people," the politician noted.
Commenting on the statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs on Ukrainians leaving the country, the oppositionist stressed that 8 million - the doom of the authorities, which deprived people of work in their home country. "By stating that 100,000 people leave the country every month, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin slipped twice. First, the real figures are much higher - 8 million labor migrants-Ukrainians have already left the country because of poverty and unemployment. They left to feed their families. Secondly, the minister presented everything as if Ukrainians were traveling to the EU in search of a better fate. But our compatriots also work in Russia and other CIS countries. And there are not less of them there," the parliamentarian said.
Oleksandr Vilkul stressed that according to Klimkin, the main issue is not that abroad high salaries, but the matter in the understanding of the future and the quality of life. "That is, there is no clear future here in our country, and we cannot hope for improving the quality of life, Mr. Minister?! It turns out that not just 54% of young Ukrainians intend to leave the country at the first opportunity?", the MP said.
"The answer to these questions is simple," Oleksandr Vilkul said, "the current government benefits from mass emigration from Ukraine. It is advantageous for it that millions of active and able-bodied citizens are forced to leave and turn into cheap, disenfranchised labor abroad."
According to the oppositionist, the government benefits from such a massive emigration. "First, the government does not need to create jobs - they have already been created in Poland, Russia and Italy. Secondly, the departed Ukrainians provide the country with currency. Thirdly, they, as a rule, cannot participate in elections and active political life - and, therefore, do not pose a threat to the authorities. I wonder if Mr. Klimkin himself understands that his "concern" with the outflow of people from the country is a verdict to their team," Oleksandr Vilkul concluded.
