Ukraine is already experiencing a shortage of labor, and this shortage could become catastrophic after the war ends.

Currently, Ukraine lacks sufficient labor. After the war, this shortage may become catastrophic, necessitating the invitation of migrants from other countries.

This was stated by Ella Libanova, Director of the Ptoukha Institute for Demography and Social Studies, in a comment to the TV channel "Espreso."

The conversation took place in Lviv during the "Ukraine - Poland" forum, where strategies for the return of Ukrainian migrants were discussed. Libanova says that Ukraine is already facing a labor shortage, which could worsen dramatically after the war.

"If we cannot provide ourselves with a sufficient workforce - and we will not be able to - we will have to invite people from other countries. Most likely, these will be individuals from less developed countries, as is usually the case. However, if Ukraine offers attractive initial conditions for young people, we might see arrivals from Poland, the Baltic countries, Central Europe and Western Europe as well. This is entirely possible," she stated.

According to the UN, over 6.5 million Ukrainians are abroad due to the Russian invasion. One-third of them are under 18 years old.
