Annotation

The article presents a historical analysis of the migratory movements of Ukrainians in Canada and the Russian Far East. The authors reveal their dependence on specific historical conditions of the past two centuries. It is shown that in addition to the common instinct of the people for self-preservation, survival, job search, migration of Ukrainians was associated with attempts to attain their national identity, signs of political self-determination and statehood. From this perspective, current events in Ukraine are a reflection of the specified migration of the peoples of this historical community.

        Key words: migrants, Ukrainians, Canada, Russia’s Far East, Primorye, multiculturalism.
