In context of Ukraine’s European integration in 2014-2017 there is a strong trend for migration flows towards emigration, mostly labour one. Ukrainian labor migration by its size and profile does not correspond to the national interests, as economically active population lives Ukraine for the EU. A threatening trend is the gradual transformation of labor migration into a permanent one. This requires developing an adequate system of measures for the regulation of migration processes within the framework of migration policy with its priority towards depopulation reducing. The financial regulation measures proposed, including liquidation of financial system imbalance in the country, attraction of direct investments into the economy, formation of investment resources in the social sphere, tax system reforming, inflation regulation, the financing of social programs for internally displaced persons, influence migration processes indirectly through social standards. They are aimed at improving the migration climate, which should help to limit the population migration from Ukraine. The financial instruments used to return Ukrainian migrants to their homeland are based on the provision of various financial benefits for re-immigrants. Financial regulation of migration processes should be carried out in combination with other methods of regulation within the framework of the state migration policy.
