Beschreibung:
This paper aims to analyze remittances by Ukrainian emigrants to their country of origin. It explores the dependence of Ukrainian individuals' expenditures on remittances and the size of remittances received from abroad on the political situation in Ukraine in 2004 (Orange Revolution and Presidential Elections in 2004). The influence of political instability on the spending of remittances by receiving households in Ukraine is investigated. The results of the nationally-representative household survey in Ukraine are used to compare individuals' decisions to spend money from remittances on investing, depending on their political views and future expectations. Change in emigrants' expectations could increase willingness to financially support the emigrants' relatives in their country of origin.
