Lviv is of the world's most beautiful cities I've visited so far, and Ukrainians are one of the finest and most humble and warmhearted people I've met in general. I'm so sorry their country is facing so much agony, but I'm very hopeful that the peace and prosperity will settle down in Ukraine very soon! May God bless you and always keep you safe!

Much love & respect for all of you from your Croatian brothers and sisters & see you soon, my beloved Lviv! <3

I have no idea where exactly in Lviv you have been and who you spoke to, but what “ racism” are you talking about? If you were around your facist friends there is no toleration towards russian fascism in Ukraine !

I also would like to warn foreigners like General Van something....
If you are coming to independent democratic country of Ukraine to enjoy yourself, eat fine food, to do some sightseeing or simply observe and talk to locals - you are welcomed. However, if you want to spread here your own ideas of either right wing or left wing origin, you will simply run into problems.

We here had a pro- European revolution in 2014 , then a Russian invasion and more recently a free and fare elections to chart a more neutral course... As we Ukrainians try to agree among ourselves we ask Europe and other Global powers only to assist us in defending ourselves against the blatant Russian aggression as is the duty world community has before Ukraine according to our country’s denuclearization agreement of 1994 (Budapest Memorandum)

So if you have other agenda simply stay out...

@Gerneral Von Klinkerhoffen - you are stupid idiot who is living in his own imaginary non-existent world.
What we had in 2014 was people’s revolution against corrupted dictator regime. And the only nazis in modern world are Russians and Russian-backed organizations.

@Anonymous Jun 19 2019 - salaries in Ukraine are low but significantly higher than shown in official reports as most people don’t work officially and don’t pay taxes. 345$ that is shown as average salary (Jul 2019) is more like a minimum salary, nobody here will work full-time for less than this number.

Oleg Yatskar - Ukraine had a stable Economy before the Western Coup De Tat, Ukraine only has itself to blame for the violent, Western backed removal of a democratically elected president. Lvov likes flying the EU flag these days, but the EU probably won't be around long enough for Ukraine to join. Nevertheless, good country although Lvov errs on the side of Fasicsm

Cost of living (for a Ukrainian) doesn't normally include rent. Most families own their own apartments outright and, like Georgia, there no or very low property taxes for most owners. 90% pay nothing in property taxes each year.
correct this information on Jan 25, 2019:
This information must be corrected

Four-person family monthly costs: 1,034.13€ (32,626.06₴) without rent

and

Average Monthly Net Salary (After Tax) 7,351.22 ₴

Think about it. Here is no logic at all cause 7351 grivnaz is about 232.99euros
If two parents are working then it makes about 465.99 euros.
Where the rest of the money comes- from business ;) or the children are working ;)

Be reasonable

Don’t sit only in Lviv. Also you can enjoy much cheaper cities for turism porpose in Ukraine, I lived month in downtown of Chernihiv (city near Kiev). Rent was twice cheaper than in Lviv. Cool restaurants and amazing old culture in one place. Found eco Belorussian food products in local market. I got rest with English speaking locals(girls;)), with much cheaper options I had ever in life.
