Senator of the Federation Council Aleksey Pushkov said that the loss of population due to the emigration of the active part abroad is a common feature of such former Soviet republics as Ukraine, Moldova, Latvia and Lithuania. He wrote about this in his Telegram channel.
“Depopulation, that is, the loss of population primarily due to the departure of its active parts abroad, is a common feature of such former Soviet republics as Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania and Moldova. In the case of the Baltic republics, these are the consequences of their development over the past 30 years. Ukraine suffered this fate after the 2014 coup,” the senator wrote.
So he commented statistics, included by Veaceslav Ionita, a Moldovan economist at the Institute for Public Initiatives Viitorul, that half of the 222.6 thousand young people will leave the republic by 2025.
