“The report demonstrates a comprehensive analysis of contemporary migration from Eastern Europe to the EU and V4 as well as detailed prognosis of future migration dynamics”.
From the Report:
“Although the migration situation in Russia was not our main research aim, it can be concluded that Russia still remains the primary destination for Ukrainian, Belarusian (over 90%) and Moldovan migrants”.
“Two out of four V4 states are key destination countries for Eastern European migrants, namely Poland and Czechia”.
“No massive inflow of labour migrants from Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova to the EU should be expected after the visa regime for short-term travel for up to 90 days is abolished”.
