James, you must realize that being a _single_ US male makes you an object of hunt. By young ladies. It is hardly safe.

#Swedish patriot on Nov 28, 2019 :
How can prices in Sweden appear so low if this page (http://confiduss.com/en/jurisdictions/sweden/) says that the GDP (per capita) is one of the highest in the world?
#News!! on Nov 06, 2019 :
Important for all Ukrainian girls: Saudi Arabia gives now tourist visa on arrival for Ukrainians, and they changed the law making confidential and not disclosable the relationship of a couple that book a room in an hotel
#Anastasia on Oct 28, 2019 :
Average salary in Kiev City is much higher than that....it's almost 700$/month nowadays. There is a huge black economy and people getting paid under the table. Rent prices are also high and keep getting higher
#Chak on Oct 27, 2019 :
Hi Ukraine,If I wanted to hire someone who can speak and wrote in english,what is the average salary in kyiv?And I did some researches on a real estate website.The cheapest rent for a 60sqm apartment is 900usd per month right now.Is this true??If it was,it is not cheap at all right now
#Anonymous on Oct 19, 2019 :
Russian agression here is present too. I agree that many Russian people is our enemies as the wrote here fulish things about Ukraine - omfg you are braindead.
You see - in Ukraine a big problem of braindead people, like he are :( They don't have own brain, they are only listen to TVs.
#alex on Oct 17, 2019 :
A normal adequate income starts from 2000-2500 USD per month. That allows you to feel a lit bit more like a human. But still a lit bit more...

The question is that only 1% of population earns so much.
#alex on Oct 17, 2019 :
An average income per a family with 2 children: 1000 -1200 USD
A rent for a flat in suburbs 50-60 square meters: 400- 500 USD. 100-150 USD - utilities.
300-400 USD for the whole extras left.
That isn`t life- only survival. Be honest!
#Anonymous on Aug 24, 2019 :
# Nany # Nany boo boo are you a Russian operative for you know hoo hoo?
#Nany on Jul 15, 2019 :
Ukraine is not that poor as people thought on their mind. cosmetic sellers in a shopping mall in Kiev get 600_700 USD.(net salary).
People usually thinks Ukraine poor because of the population. The people come from village in Ukraine are working in Poland, Hungary etc.
Cost of living is cheaper, but not super cheap. Supermarket is quite good choice. And very cheap even compare to east EU countries.
Still a little difference between Ukraine and EU member (east Europe). But I think Ukraine soon to catch up Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Latvia those places in few years only.
#Traveler on Jul 01, 2019 :
Now an average salary in kiev is 600usd and they have ways to bypass the taxes so effectively it is 750usd, the salary of a simple police or army man with few years in service is 700usd
Salaries are moving high and are better than some euro countries like bulgaria and so close to others like greece, Portugal and others...
But people aren't living better because of high uncontrollable inflation
I go to kiev so often, Kiev has totally lost its attraction as a cheap city, but is still holding its exceptional beauty
#Teodor on Jun 26, 2019 :
You can live in Kiev on $500 per month (including rent), and can survive on $350
#Anonymous on Jun 22, 2019 :

# Sasha Why would you ask what gift to bring to Ukraine? This is a cost of living site not an advice place.
#Sasha on Apr 17, 2019 :
What is a good gift to bring - something that doesn't weigh too much and would be pretty costly for an average Ukrainian. I was thinking maybe bringing quality electronics such as wireless Beat headphones.
#Anonymous on Mar 06, 2019 :
I agree with SHRUTI because I rent a flat in city center for $1,050 usd per month.Its poorly insulated, electric and plumbing way outdated when it actually works.
#Anonymous on Mar 02, 2019 :
I agree with the post about the U S not giving any more military aid to the Ukraine.The U S is rejecting visas from the Ukraine and Russia too.Its the USA'S duty to keep anyone out from Russia or the Ukraine which includes the majority of other countries as well.People marrying Americans from the Ukraine Russia or other countries to get USA citizenship doesn't work anymore either.The U S won't help any country anymore, good luck.
#Anonymous on Mar 02, 2019 :
Russia has the Ukraine out gunned with military.Russia already took 85% of Crimea.The U S military saved the Ukraine more than once and spent 300 billion dollars of U S taxpayers money that was never repaid to rebuild the Ukraine.The Ukraine might as well let Russia have all of the Ukraine because the U S military won't help the Ukraine again.Tell your president to stop calling Washington asking for help, you're on your own just like the rest of the world is.
#Anonymous on Mar 01, 2019 :
Russian agression here is present too. I agree that many Russian people is our enemies as the wrote here fulish things about Ukraine
#Anonymous on Feb 28, 2019 :
I agree the Ukraine is without a doubt a slum country full of violence.The Ukrainian president should wave his white flag and surrender to Russia.Russia already took Crimea, might as well give Russia the rest of the Ukraine.
#Anonymous on Feb 24, 2019 :
The Ukraine will always be a nonprogressive country without any ideas of what the future holds for them.The men like women are severe alcholics but that's normal.Kiev has always been a war zone and will continue to be so just as the rest of the Ukraine is.I visited all of the Ukraine after staying there for 6 months.Hookers abound everywhere even while trying to have lunch at a restaurant and druggies abound also.Thats what I saw during my 6 month stay and I didn't indulge in any of the above.
#Anon Emouse on Dec 26, 2018 :
Hello Ukraine
How is the homosexual lifestyle in Kiev? I'm planning to move there with my partner soon. We hear the undergound scene is hot.
#Olga on Nov 27, 2018 :
Avg salary in Ukraine I mentioned in UAH (12,124), not USD
#Sen on Oct 12, 2018 :
Good info, but here is more detailed data about estimated budget for 1 person for traveling and living in Kiev - https://voyagestic.com/place/kiev
#Emilio on Sep 12, 2018 :
I go to kiev frequently, this summer prices were much higher due to high salaries and lack of labor, after Ukrainians were granted a visa free to euro past year, most of the labor are traveling to euro zone, pushing wages up in ukraine, resulting a big inflation,and a big flow of sended money by Ukrainian working in the euro zone.
Kiev stills fairly cheap but far from being so cheap, the most frequent salary there is 15000 uah around 550usd and qualified people easily attend 30000uah around 1100usd
1 bedroom apartment in city center is for 1000usd per month
A three course lunch in an above average restaurant for two people is for 60usd
Transportation stills so cheap
For me I Don t mind paying in kiev, the city is beautiful and deserves, I consider it like Paris and Vienna and even better, so why it has to be cheaper!!
#Grzegorz on Sep 05, 2018 :
Ukrainian husbands not even mind anymore if their wives sleep with an Arab tourist for an iPhone
#konika on Jul 12, 2018 :
Don't go to Kiev to pay exorbitant prices for rent and services. You will just be feeding the greedy and corrupt landlords and their intermediaries there.
You know why real estate people, taxi drivers,marriage agencies, restaurants are most common businesses there?
Its because they feed on foreigners.
Don't worry about the local people, they don't have any money.
You know why foreigners like it there?
Its because there are too many rules and conventions in their own countries whereas in Ukraine there isn't. But as a rule life is precarious in Kiev and anything get happen to you if you nor careful.
#Anonymous on Apr 25, 2018 :
Jim R Hyde Jr - you've got screwed on rent. I'm renting 1 bedroom appartment in housing district of Obolon, river view, 7000uah
#Jim R Hyde Jr on Mar 22, 2018 :
Well they are way off on rent. I rented a one bedroom apartment in downtown Kyiv. Nothing spectacular about the apartment. And the rent was 30,000 uah for a month.
#Arseniy on Feb 14, 2018 :
It's amazing, I'm a Junior Java Developer that works remotely, I make about 4-5k a month and live here, have a penthouse apartment in the city centre(1.5k/mo.) and buy very expensive food, and i still have around 2k left over every month after all expenses for, saving, etc.
#Anonymous on Jan 26, 2018 :
Jim r Hyde I was there twice last year, last being in August. These prices are pretty in line and up to date. Even clothes in the oceans mall are in line with Tennessee prices and affordable. Beer in a bar is like 80% cheaper. Food about 70%. Clothes about the sane but less sakes racks and less cheap low quality options. 1200$ would be like 3500$ in my best estimate. Vs Washington DC or NYC were talking even bigger difference so yeah it might get you 5000$ equivalent.
#Jim R Hyde Jr on Dec 18, 2017 :
My finace pays

Rent (2 bedroom, 78 m2) 4,000 uah
Food (for 2 people) 4,000 uah
English courses ($90 usd) 2,600 uah
Utilities (summer only 1,000) 2,000 uah
Private School for son 1,200 uah
Hair and Nails, Salon 1 time - 450 uah
Internet 100 uah
Phone 50 uah

These are monthly costs living in the Darnytsia District of Kiev for comparison. Phone, Internet, and TV can be around 1,700 uah monthly for best maximum rates through Kyivstar. The food costs are for luxurious amounts of home cooked meals, and is variable depending on your preferences.
#Stas on Nov 19, 2017 :
Jim R Hyde Jr
More than enough for 8 days. It's like 5000usd in USA or west europe. But note, that prices on clothes is probably even bigger than in your country.
#Jim R Hyde Jr on Nov 18, 2017 :
Planning a trip to Kiev in March 2018 for 8 days. Plan to bring $1,200 usd spending cash. Is this enough for 2 adults and a child? (Housing and transportation are already paid)

#Anonymous on Oct 23, 2017 :
1 bedroom apartment in downtown costs 250 - 650$ + 60-100$ for utilities. The average 428 (as indicated) is +/- real price.
Don't trust previous commenter. 800-2000$ - it's unbeliveble
#mrNERO on Jul 18, 2017 :
1 bedroom apartment in downtown Kiev: 800-2000$ per month. 100-500$ per 1 day.
#Anonymous on Jul 12, 2017 :
How much would it cost to rent a one bedroom apartment with basic feature in Kiev downtown
#Housing on Apr 19, 2017 :
Taking into consideration the average net income of od 272 USD and average rent for one bedroom apartment, the housing costs account for 83% of disposable income. Hence, the graph below does not portray the reality. People overburden from housing costs (meaning that spend on housing above 40% is considered to be financial"overburden" on personal budget as per Eurostat definition).
#Anonymous on Apr 14, 2017 :
What is medical system like? How much is it to pay to see a private doctor and are the doctors any good?
#alex on Mar 26, 2017 :
Eugene is talking about a very very basic soviet apartment for that price. A family of three can be fairly comfortable on $1000 a month, but you would not be able to afford to live in the centre. For a better idea you can search on OLX website, run through google translate if you can't speak russian.
#Eugene on Mar 12, 2017 :
Marcelo
Depends on type of the appartments.
Typical utilities prices for small flat is 1200-1500 UAH/m for heating in winter monthes + 200-300UAH for electricity + 300-500UAH for cold/hot water + 100-200UAH for garbage colletion etc.
Overall price begins from about 2000UAH for an appartment 50m2 and goes higher if you want to live in bigger appartment.
#Fya EXel on Mar 04, 2017 :
How well can a family of three adults live on 1000 American dollars per month in Kiev? - wery well if you have appartments.

#Oleg on Oct 20, 2016 :
I never said Ukrainians were fascists, jst irresponsible, not independently thinking, post-Soviet people, who instead of looking at the root cause of their problems choose to live much in the same way as before yet expecting from some where larger salaries and higher standards of living. I am Ukrainian myself and to ME THE LEGACY OF RUSSIAN AUTHORITARIAL RULE IS THE MAJOR PROBLEM!!! Sadly many of our people see just what is on the surface and unfortunately the oligarchs' ealth and their nationality is what they see most often. At the same time they fail to realize that such economic set up is the result of not going through the harsh pro market reforms and open transparent privatization in early nineties....also not wanting to fight Russia and its economic llegacy even now...
#My Name on Oct 20, 2016 :
A country populated by people thinking "Jewish oligarchs" want a "genocide" on them deserves all the poverty of the world. Good luck surviving at <$200/month, fascists.
#Oleg on Oct 19, 2016 :
Aga you people, true Europeans with this Jew-oligarchs, genocide of Ukrainians talk... I just love it. While this country has been occupied by Russia for last 300years, creating here as in the rest of territories nothing but personal responsibility, political patronage and reliance on handouts - you see the root cause of our country's problems not in our peoples inability to break with that vicious cycle of pro -Russian mentality, but in ethnicity of our major industrialists here. Not even the present day war with Russia deters you from your Jew-hate thinking!!! I personally find it to be pathetic. I don't deny that a few rich families over the years of not transparent, post -Soviet privatization have accrued control over our country's major and key industrial assets. But in all democratic countries it is the electorate and responsible citizens who through elections keep big business in check!. We had two revolutions started by those same responsible people, but did the rest follow??? Now, the majority of Ukrainians are waiting for their heating subsidies from the government much like their Russian counterparts would...How then is it possible to raise to EU standards of living with the people who think like that being in the majority???

#Oleg

Yanukovich is not my guru, and I do not support annexation of Crimea by Russia and its military invasion to the East of Ukraine.
However, I totally agree with Sergey. What is going on in Ukraine, is simply genocide of of the population done by Jewish oligarchs who totally control power, mass media and financial flows in the country
#Shawn on Oct 02, 2016 :
What's up Guys! I will be coming to Kiev and trying to stay for 2-3 months :)
If I want to hire a graphics artist/illustrator (that words with Photoshop..) how much would I have to pay them per month if I want to hire them for 1-2 months?

Do you guys have any websites or apartments you know of that offer rent for $200-250 a month? I want a 2 bedroom outside city center.

Thank you,
Shawn
#Oleg on Sep 20, 2016 :

Dear Sergey,
You are always free to move to Russia as your guru president Yanukovich has done...

#Sergey on Sep 12, 2016 :
after the revolution of lumpens in 2013-14.quality of life in kiev is fell in 3-4 times.

Usually one of family members spent his salary to pay rent and utilities, and other pays for food. I know a lot of young families who rent just a room, not a whole flat, it is a bit cheaper but you live together with other family in one flat.

#Rd8 on Sep 03, 2016 :

Just trying to figure out how much a stay at home mom and a teen that's going to college might need. Both smokes. Assuming all money goes to expenses and no savings.

Can someone explain me why is renting 1 room almost the same as average salary? I mean usually people with low salaries cannot be a house, so they have to rent, but rent takes all their money? How can you rent?

If some of you guys consider doing business in Ukraine then you gotta know at least 1 person you trust thats living there. Thats for sure. Most people are kind (a lot more kind then usual) but there is a percentage of utter retards who will gladly rip you off.
I dont have a job atm and im not in a mood for some office work for at least 2 month. So if you want someone to scout some specific businesses or stuff you need to know then just tell me (video feedback, realtime footage included). That should be interesting for me and helpful to you.
