By According to the Czechs themselves, in their country now every tenth is a Ukrainian. Is this true and how many Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians actually live in the Czech Republic, the Russian woman decided to find out. She shared the statistics and her surprise in the Zen channel.
The Russian woman herself moved to the Czech Republic back in 2004. At that time, there were 13,000 compatriots there, and 70,000 Ukrainians. In March 2022, there were already 46,000 Russians in the Czech Republic, of which 43,000 remained by the end of the year. By the end of 2022, there were 636,000 Ukrainians in the country. In total, 10 million people live in the Czech Republic. That is, about every twentieth person living in the Czech Republic is a Ukrainian.
The statistics show only people with long-term visas, residence permits or permanent residence. However, there are also short-term visas and Ukrainians who arrived under a visa-free regime. Accordingly, the real numbers may be higher.
There are much fewer Belarusians in the Czech Republic – only 8,000 people. And the largest group after the Ukrainians was the Slovaks: there are about 118,000 of them. The third place went to the Vietnamese, of which there are 66,000 people. In fourth place are Russians with 43,000 voiced above, in fifth place are 20,000 Romanians, and then there are Poles and Bulgarians, of which there are 17-18 thousand people each. There are less than ten thousand representatives of other nations.
Information on the distribution of foreigners by city is available only for 2021, so the number of Ukrainians in it must be multiplied by 3.5, judging by trends and statistics. In Prague two years ago there were 23,000 Russians, 54,000 Ukrainians and the same number of Slovaks. In the Karlovy Vary region, the majority are Vietnamese, of which there are 5,000, followed by 3,400 Ukrainians, 1,800 Slovaks and 1,607 Russians. There were 6'800 Ukrainians, about 500 Russians, 2'000 Vietnamese and almost 3'000 Slovaks in the city of Pilsen.
