The article provides an analysis of the migration processes of rural youth and identifies the factors influencing them.
There are many differences between rural and urban lifestyles. They affect such areas of life as everyday life, everyday life, and the characteristics of interper-sonal relationships. One of the problems that is typical for village life is the lack of places where a person could find a job. In many ways, it is this factor that forces people to pay special attention to personal farming. In addition, such a feature of rural life as the seasonality of earnings is of particular importance.
In many ways, the views embodied in the migration processes of rural youth are influenced by childhood impressions. In childhood, the foundation is laid that forms the specifics of self-awareness. The single-industry nature of the rural econ-omy and the ongoing crisis in the agricultural sector stimulate rural youth to leave their native lands. In order to stay in the village, a young person needs either a life strategy, the implementation of which requires living outside the city, or reliance on happy childhood memories associated with this area.
