The global economy of 2021 was rocked by waves of border openings and closings around the world. Outbreaks of the coronavirus forced countries to take measures such as travel restrictions and the introduction of covid passports. As a result, there was an atmosphere of uncertainty: many people did not know if relocation was possible, or if it was worth it in such "turbulent" times.
And it is not that difficult to leave, even with closed national borders. The main thing is to have the desire to move. For example, the Czech Republic, Germany, Cyprus, and other countries provide work visas for Russian-speaking specialists even in the lockdown mode.
Yes, our reality has changed a lot in the last two years. But 2021 is remarkable because, during this period, people and companies have adapted to the new circumstances. As for business, new opportunities opened up for the IT-industry in terms of growing demand for digital products and experienced developers.
