Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers Oleh Nemchinov stated that a nationwide population census would definitely take place in Ukraine in the near future. The minister said this in an interview with RBC-Ukraine.
According to him, the census is a complex and expensive procedure. To conduct it, both the epidemiological and financial situation in the country should be taken into account.
"There are two components: financial and epidemic. Financially speaking, this is an extremely expensive project. Preparations must begin in at least a year and a half, that is, if we wanted to start in 2023, we would have to start preparing in 2021. Speaking on the epidemic component – as far as I remember, there must be 150,000 people who will be carrying out this census. But it will take place, it is a government program, and it is in a rather prominent place," Nemchinov said.
