RE: Ukraine is one of the poorest countries in the world
Ukraine is hardly one of poorest countries in the world - International Monetary Fund rates it as 113/186 and World Bank give it place 107/175. One can't say that Ukraine is rich but saying that it is among poorest does not sit well with facts I would say.

As for why I imagine it being complex mix of socio-economic factors which can not be accurately described in simple post. Though one can suspect that history has something to do with it.

If you aren't on a mobile device, run a ctrl-F search in the future. Since we are both here though, the ranks you are looking for are:

The International Monetary Fund puts Ukraine as #113, World Bank has #107, CIA places it #121.

Isn't it #107 for World Bank?

Ok 2 things:

1: The thread title looks like this on my browser -

Laugh out load

2: A friend of the family is from the Ukraine, having moved over to the UK for a better life. She tells me that Ukraine is pretty poor, although not as bad as some places. She mentioned how she went back recently to take her family out to McDonalds, and they all thought she was a millionaire or something. She also sends money over, which is used to bribe education officials as her brother is pretty pants at stuff, yet needs qualifications to get a decent job, and almost every official in the country is on the take apparently.

Glad I live where I do!
