As we reported earlier, according to the chairman of the National Bank Yakiv Smoliy, Ukraine expects to receive 10 billion dollars in remittances from labor migrants.
“Of course, due to quarantine, these receipts decreased ... This year we expect that there will be $ 10 billion. But this sum will be compensated by the fact that people will not be able to go on holiday abroad,” he said.
