Tomorrow Ukraine’s future government is elected, but many Ukrainians see no future at all in their country. Distrust in politicians and difficulty making a career has led more and more people to leave their country.
There are no reliable figures on how many people are leaving Ukraine. But it is certain that the will is there. A survey last year showed that more than 50 percent in the group of 18 to 29 years had the desire to emigrate. Many people who leave are young and well educated.
In the elections tomorrow many will vote for the party udar headed by Vitaly Klitjko – reigning world heavyweight champion.
