Transcarpathia, for the first time during the years of Ukraine’s independence, recorded a natural reduction of the population by five hundred people. This was reported by the press service of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration with reference to the management of statistics in the region.
“Last year the region, for the first time during the independence of Ukraine, recorded a natural reduction of the population by five hundred people – 14,552 persons were born, and 15,077 died,” it is said in the statement.
