You're reading: Vox Populi with Oksana Faryna: Are there too many or too few foreigners living in Ukraine? Is their presence positive or negative?

Yevhen Slavyanov

journalist and musician

“There should be more expatriates and tourists if we consider Ukraine a European country and Kyiv a European city. The more foreigners come, the more it will induce us to develop ourselves, to study languages, to learn new cultures, to watch how people behave. It is important to integrate with Europe not only economically and politically, but also mentally. If the number of foreigners grows, it will eliminate our post-Soviet heritage, our post-Soviet mentality. We’ll become thinking more broadly.”
