The myth of thousands of irregular border crossings

In this paper you can find some highly interesting statistics on the readmission agreement between the European Union and Ukraine:

ThReadmissione expert community and mass media expressed their apprehensions that Ukraine might be overwhelmed with hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants from third-party countries. These fears, however, proved unfounded. In two years since the Agreement’s enactment (2010-2011), the State Border Service of Ukraine readmitted about 1,500 people, 57.4% of whom were Ukrainian nationals (Table 1), 28.8% – the nationals of other CIS countries (including Georgia) and 13.8%,the nationals of developing Asian and African countries.
