Have you ever thought about leaving Ukraine because of tough economic conditions?
“I have never thought about leaving Ukraine. Although my daughter moved abroad to the United States 12 years ago, I would rather visit her as a guest. All our Skype conversations start with a review of the political situation. So I want to stay here, especially in such a hard time.” “I have no reasons to be somewhere else. I consider myself as a Ukraine defender since World War II. My granddaughter went for an internship abroad, but she will definitely come back in July. Young people will leave because of money, but it is just rubbish in life.” “When I was waiting for university enrollment, I thought about it. The situation in Ukraine doesn’t scare me, but my groupmates are about to hold a master’s degree in some prestigious university and then stay there. I blame our government, that they didn’t create the appropriate conditions for youth development.” “I think that Ukraine has a future, but maybe for my children. If I get a job opportunity in highly developed country, I will definitely take the offer. I am unsatisfied with the new government policy, for instance, taking off 15 percent more from working retirees.” “I began to think about the idea of living abroad, as here is no impartial justice. I can’t blame government, but I disappointed in the authorities. The youth want to stay here, because they indeed do believe in changes, but I do not.“
