Ukraine may become a new “migration bomb” which will be more destructive than Syria.


Such a view had expressed Ruslan Bortnik – head of Ukrainian Institute of System Analysis and Management of Policy. According to expert opinion the process of granting Ukraine visa-free regime with the European Union can take years or even decades. The first thing that counts is the quantity of people who would move from one country to another. And the European experts are sure that Ukraine is a “migration bomb” for EU.


Researchers calculate that from 5 till 10 million people would emigrate from Ukraine to EU in case of visa-free regime. In comparison with eventual inrush of Ukrainian migrants the inrush of Syrian migrants looks like pleasure trip. Experts are sure that now there are no grounds to talk about visa-free regime between Ukraine and EU. All the attempts to take up this theme is no more than political insinuation.
