Bulgarians in the Ukrainian Danube region are settled in a multiethnic environment along with Ukrainians, Russians, Moldovans, Gagauz and others. In the region they form the area of ​​compact monoethnic settlement. Demographic processes in their environment are characterized by the restoration of the trajectory, after a sharp drop in the birth rate in the mid-1990s. In economic activity, one can trace the desire for individual management of the economy. Within the range of their distribution, the absolute majority of farms in the Odessa region are concentrated. All this takes place against the background of revitalization of the ethno-cultural life of the population.
