Income level

From the analysis it is clear that the difference in the cost of prices for products is minimal, however, the agency pays attention to the level of income in both countries.

If in Poland the average monthly salary is 59,332 UAH (6,061 zlotys including taxes), then in Ukraine 17,442 UAH.

“We observe a minimal difference in the cost of products in Ukraine and Poland, but it is important to take into account the level of income in each country. Given that the average monthly salary in Ukraine is almost three times less than in Poland, it is clear that Ukrainians spend a significantly larger percentage of their income on products compared to residents of Poland.

Thus, considering prices for products without taking into account income may lead to an incomplete understanding of the economic situation in both countries. Therefore, there is still a tendency for Ukrainians to come to Poland to work and return to Ukraine to spend what they earn,” noted Evgeniy Kirichenko, founder of Gremi Personal.
