Poland weighs benefits of surge in migrants from Ukraine

Every three months or so, Oleksy Talalai sets out after a week at home in Khmelnitsky, western Ukraine, on the 11-hour journey to Leszno, in the west of Poland.

Working in Leszno’s thriving economy installing electricity cables, Mr Talalai, 35, is part of one of Europe’s biggest — but less-noticed — mass migrations: of Ukrainians into Poland.

“The main benefit of working in Poland is the money,” he says. “Earnings in Poland are much higher. There’s a crisis in Ukraine, prices are increasing. Everyone’s looking where they can earn more.”

Almost 1.3m Ukrainians last year received the temporary work registrations that Poland grants to citizens of its eastern neighbour, and 116,000 more received longer-term work permits. Both figures have leapt six-fold since 2013, driven largely by the economic slump that followed Ukraine’s 2014 pro-western revolution and the Russian-fomented conflict in the country’s east.

For Poland’s nationalist Law and Justice government, the Ukrainian influx is proving politically and economically useful. It helps parry EU criticisms over Warsaw’s refusal to accept quotas for Middle Eastern migrants — and to fill labour shortages following the exodus of 2m Poles seeking higher wages further west, shortages that could be exacerbated by current government policies.

There are concerns in western Europe, however, that with the EU granting visa-free travel to Ukrainians from next month, similar inflows could be seen elsewhere. Poland may remain an exceptional case as, unlike most EU states, it has partially opened its labour market to Ukrainians.

For now, Warsaw ministers are keen to draw parallels between Poland’s absorption of Ukrainians and Germany’s welcoming of 1m Syrian refugees in 2015.......................
