Immigration to Ukraine

Immigration into Ukraine (postindependence (1991)) has been mainly ethnic Ukrainians already living in nearby countries (for example in 1993 they were 90% of all immigrants); other immigrants were mostly Crimean Tatars and people fleeing wars in Azerbaijan, Transnistria and Chechnya (a region in Russia).[1]

After the start of the War in Donbass in 2014 several hundreds foreigners (mostly Russians and Belarusians) migrated to Ukraine to join its territorial defence battalions and army.[2]
