KYIV (QHA) -

To date, 95% of immigrants from the annexed Crimea do not want to return to the peninsula, regardless of whether or not the Crimea will return in Ukraine in the next five years, the founder of the NGO "Crimean Diaspora" Anatoly Zasoba said at a press conference in Kiev, a QHA correspondent reports.

“The state assumes responsibility for reintegration or the return of the occupied territories after their liberation. But it does not want to assume the obligations for integration. The all-Ukrainian statistics on migrants from the Crimea and Donbas says that 77% of people do not plan to return to the occupied territories in the next five years, regardless of how the events will unfold.

In Crimea, the numbers are even higher: 95% of people are not going to come back, because they understand that the mental changes that have occurred in the occupied territories do not create conditions for an early return,” Zasoba said.

According to him, today in the Crimea "the information field does not promote people to take the Crimean settlers back."

According to official data of the Ministry for Social Policy, there are 1 million 656 thousand. 662 inner migrants in Ukraine (or 1 million 336 thousand. 31 families) from the Crimea and Donbas.
