Disability in Ukraine

2.7 million people in Ukraine (6%[1]) were reported having a disability in 2014.[2] However this number did not include the (reportedly) 1.5% of people with temporary disabilities.[2] Also in 2014 35% of people aged 60–70 had some age-related disability, and in the category over 80 years this number grew to 50%.[2]

Ukraine is notoriously "disability unfriendly".[2] For example in the capital Kiev only 4% of infrastructure is "disability friendly", while almost every other resident of city would benefit it.[2]

In the 1990s unemployment rates for disabled rose sharply in Ukraine (and other Eastern European countries) due to economic downfall.[3]

Ukraine is one of the most successful countries of the Paralympic Games.[4]
