According to some estimates, in the world there are about 200 million migrant workers, and a significant number of people can leave their country to move to another. Mostly dominated by the so-called economic migrants,the people looking for higher earnings, more stable living conditions. Not the last role played by security issues, more high-quality education and health care. It should be noted that Ukrainian law is extremely loyal to the category of «refugees». In particular, it prohibited the expulsion or forcible return of a refugee to a country where he came from and where his life or freedom would be threatened. The members of the family of a person who has been granted refugee status, for the purpose of family reunification shall be entitled to enter the Ukraine, and is also seeking refugee status. Thus, the Asian illegal, breaking the Ukraine, no problem can cause to themselves all their big family. Refugees also have equal rights with the citizens of Ukraine. For example, in marriage and family relations (if married to a citizen of a refugee has the right to obtain citizenship of Ukraine), on movement and free choice of residence, to free exit from the country, to work on business … A large scale of migration has put before the nations , goverments and the public a lot of questions.
