Ukrainians in Uruguay
Ukrainians arrived in Uruguay around the 1920s, coming from Western Ukraine, Bukovina and Transcarpathian Ukraine, as well as some immigrants from Argentina. During the last years of the World War II, many displaced people came from Europe.
According to Ukrainian sources, nowadays there are several thousands of people of Ukrainian descent living in Uruguay. Other local sources report about just hundreds of people of Ukrainian descent living in Uruguay, mainly in Salto Department; further, the 2011 Uruguayan census revealed 70 people who declared Ukraine as their country of birth. A recent bilateral agreement aims at further research on Ukrainian roots in Uruguay.
