This paper analyses Ukrainian labour migration and remittances in the Czech Republic. It reveals that the main determinants are demographic and economic, while the human capital turns out to be insignificant. It also finds that the majority of the remittances earned in the Czech Republic go to the construction of houses in Ukraine. The findings of determinants and motives of migration and remittances might help policy-makers on both sides of the migration corridor to formulate proper policies aiming at enhancing the Ukrainian remittance transfers from CEECs and ameliorating the quality of life in Ukraine
