Ukrainians in Armenia

The Ukrainians in Armenia are Ukrainians living in Armenia.

Origins

The first Ukrainians in Armenia were in the mid 19th century after the migration to Transcaucasia “the Cossacks from Minor Russia” to seal the Empire’s Southern borders. The main role of the migrants was agriculture.

According to the 1989 Census, living in Armenia were 8.3 thousand Ukrainians. However, with regard to the migrational processes of the last decade, today that number has perhaps been reduced by half.
