No sharp spikes in the unemployment rate are expected on the Ukrainian labor market in the next six months, head of the Certification Committee of the Association of HR Professionals HR Forum Dmytro Kozlov told a press conference, ForUm correspondent reports.

"If we talk about the prospects for the next 6-9 months, major changes can hardly be expected. There will be industry-specific features," he said.

According to him, the positive changes are assumed to be in such industries as information technology, media and agribusiness. The situation will remain stable also in the sphere of trade and services in the energy and pharmaceutical sectors.

However, he noted that there are unexpected risks, primarily related to blocking Ukrainian goods at the Russian customs.

"Today's events may lead to some difficulties in exporting Ukrainian products to the countries of the Customs Union, particularly metal, chemicals, light industry goods. It is possible that HR-managers of these companies are thinking about the staff cuts," Kozlov said.

He also suggested that due to the high level of unemployment in Greece, Spain and Portugal, where quite a large number of Ukrainian migrant workers works, some of them will try to come back.
