Moving to Ukraine
Ukraine is a beautiful country sitting above the black sea bordering Russia in the East and Poland in the North. The warmer waters from the Black Sea give the Southern part of Ukraine its warmer temperatures and fertile plains. The economy in Ukraine is largely agricultural and Industrial. Its land is mostly plateaus and plains with two small mountain ranges.
Kiev is the capital of Ukraine and is one of the most picturesque Eastern European cities to see. Its architecture is a mix of classic early European and Asian in that many of its early public buildings and churches resemble the round domes similar to structures seen in Russia or Asia. Kiev is considered a very Romantic city to visit it sits on the Dnieper River that spans across Ukraine and deposits into the Black Sea.
Ukrainian is the national language spoken in Ukraine and Russian is the second largest language spoken and the primary language in the East of Ukraine. English is taught in schools and is quite popular but it can be difficult to communicate with residents in smaller villages or towns. Most cities and towns are smaller compared to Western Europe and not very crowded.
The Ukrainian diet is not to different from Western Europe and mainly Pork, Beef, chicken and fish with fresh vegetables or pickled vegetables. Many of the dishes include gains and potatoes and are sometimes stewed and eaten with cabbage.
Ukraine has a long rugged history that is reflected in the culture of its people. Ukraine has endured hundreds of years of wars and famine to finally emerge into its newly independent status in 1990. The economic and political changes since the country’s independence have paved a slow road to economic stability.
Living in the Ukraine takes a bit of patience and getting use to. The attitudes and mentality of Ukrainians are slowly lifting from a recent tightly controlled post soviet error to a new democracy, and capitalism influenced by the West.
The challenge ahead for Ukraine is to successfully get both the Eastern part of Ukraine which still largely holds onto the Russian culture and language to join the Western half of Ukraine which supports one national government and culture.
As a result of the change and desire for economic growth, many global companies are looking to the Ukraine for opportunities to expand their European production and trade. Ukraine is merely beginning to see prosperity from trade in Western Europe and more to come.
Reasons to Live in Ukraine

Estimated Cost of Living in Ukraine
Living in the Ukraine is recently very affordable. The economic crisis since 2009 has caused a major crash in the housing market. It literally is a great opportunity for buyers and particularly for the high end properties or business offices. Foreigners are allowed to purchase property in Ukraine and you do not have to pay property tax.
If you purchase an apartment, you will not have to pay a capital gains tax. It’s also good to note that getting financed in the Ukraine is difficult and the interest rates are high. If you are able to get financed by a European bank you are better off. Look for a lawyer before purchasing property and use a 3 party translation company to translate your legal papers; you cannot unfortunately trust the seller or mediator.
Utilities are reasonable, water, garbage, Gas and electric for a 85 sq. m apartment is about $65 a month. Clothing is very expensive specially if you like major brands or designer labels.
