I am Bangladeshi I was born in Bangladesh. I am a very ordinary person.
Now I live in Ukraine. I am a student. I am studying English Philology. I paid one year's tuition fee. My university name is University European University Kiev. But the person I paid tuition fee is a teacher in the foreign department of this university. His name is Karim. He took my money down without paying my tuition fees. It is not possible for me now to return to the country and renew my visa. But immigration to this country canceled my student card. Why was I dismissed? There was nothing wrong with me. University made a mistake.
Now I am appealing to the government to re-educate me. That gave me back my student card
To give the opportunity to study in the university.

I just returned from my first trip to Ukraine (Feb. 2020). Spent most of our time in Vinnytsia but finished out our trip in Kyiv. The city was beautiful and we never felt unsafe. One of our hosts is was a 60+ year old woman from the US who has lived in Kyiv for 25 years and she walks freely by herself. Our last evening in the city one of my companions and I decided to go out and have one last vodka to finish out the trip. It was a Wednesday night and we went out at about 11 PM. We were staying near the Opera House and walked for quite a while before we found an open bar. We returned about 1 AM. We saw a good number of people out that evening and never felt unsafe. The only time we were approached was by a guy asking us for a light for his cigarette. Our whole group said that this was one of our favorite trips yet (we work for a US University and had just returned from a trip to Ghana before coming to Ukraine) and wished we had more time to just hang out and enjoy the city.

Omg. Ive been travelling to kiev for over 4 years and have been probably been over 30 times. I've never seen any trouble. Every one has treated me with respect and kindness. Im sure there are districts that are not pleasant but as a tourist (reasonably well travelled)you will love kiev.

I live in Kiev, the city is dirty, you feel yourself constantly in danger. Day and night, the homeless are many, over the past 4 years. If there is a possibility to refrain from traveling I recommend not to go.

Kiev is not safe anymore and quite depressing.
People are mugged and robbed here on a daily basis, happens almost everywhere and statistics is even over districts.
Cars amount stolen every day is overwhelming, they are stolen to be disassembled or turned in back for ransom. This part is out of control and couldn't be easily resolved unfortunately.
Burglaries (including violent and sometimes lethal) in residential areas, police is unable to deal with growing crime. Burglaries and BURGLARIES and HOME INVASIONS, sorry for caps, but it's only getting worse.
Bloody fightings group vs group occur every day here, participants do not hesitate to utilize knives and sometimes handguns.
Thievery, vandalism - very common. More and more you see soft and hard drugs are advertised, mostly as graffiti on the walls.
Worries being insulted - yes, applicable to drivers mostly, they do insult each other, beeping at each other, horning and punching faces sometimes. No one insults you somewhere else, people are quite indifferent towards one another and environment, living inside their own cocoons.
Corruption and bribery level is beyond the limits. It has no limits though, only gettin' worse and worse.
