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.

#nilo, it depends on how you behave
A lot of Turkish guys are walking in gangs throughout the city and behave bad so being taught by locals

Corruption - 100% - all want only money %(
Brainless politicians and their relatives are engaged in all basic positions.

The only thing i dont agree about here is the crime rate for being attacked because of your skin colour. In ukraine its very high. All my foreign friends (encluding myself) have all been either verbally (but mostly physically) attacked because of our skin colour and race.
