It is quite dangerous in Ukraine. These people have weird mood (Street Group Mugger) that you descrived in this video. This never happens in El Salvador. No one could hit you like that just for nothing. Perhaps it is because of the WAR in UKraine

Went there 2 weeks ago, had zero problems. I felt safer in Kiev than in my home country.

So Avoid the Shaved Head Sweat Suit guys, typical 1990's style looking Russian Gangsta look. Just be street smart, or avoid Countries with horrible economies and massive Government Corruption.

Olga, I had an altercation with a drunk man outside a Dance Club in Zaporozhye on my second trip to the Ukraine. The girl I was with was also drunk. They knew each other and the interpreter kept pulling me aside because I would block this guy from putting his hands on my girl. Nothing ever came of it because I know I am in a foreign country and I did not want to make any trouble. He was so drunk he could hardly stand. We called a taxi and got out of there. Upon my first trip I witnessed two drunk men dancing with each other in a club and was told this was normal male bonding. I am making my 6th trip this month to Odessa to visit my fiancee. I met her September 2017. I love your videos and I love visiting Ukraine.

On my first day in Ukraine a street seller tried to sell me a wristband and asked for 50-100 Grivna. I was thinking like 'oh shit that's a lot of money' and I said I didn't exchange my money yet. He said Turkish Lira is okay too and I gave him 20 Turkish Lira. I thought I got off cheap but the next day I figured out I already gave him more than he wanted haha.

TRACK SUITS! Avoid men in TRACK SUITS! And, by the way, the United States is a nightmare compared to Ukraine in terms of safety. Americans shoot each other every day because there's no gun control here. You take your life in your own hands visiting the U.S. No joke. Very dangerous country.

Buy a pepper spray in case of any emergency and stay away from taxi drivers cause they always charge you more money,hang out at good places (mostly cheap for tourists because of economical problems of Ukraine).stay away from drunk people.but if you need to fight then do cause they will give up.

Btw, on maidan square, I got cheated while letting the pigeon holders to scam me 320 hryvnas back in 2013!! It was at least MUCH BETTER than China though cos my roommate in china was scammed 8000 rmb for a tea house scam which is about 32000 hryvnas!!!! I didn't really wanna hurt the girls feeling that's why I decided to take the pigeons photos...now though, I'll never do it again, still have those photos in my camera))

Same rules apply to Russia. The usual trap is : do you have a cigarette? No, sorry. Oh you don't smoke? No I don't. So you're a faggot? And here you go... By the way most of these people are not drunk they're just looking for trouble

Generally pretty safe country, safer than e.g the US. One do not got all the drug and gangs, so much street violence etc. The biggest danger for a forign man concerning Ukraine, except going into the war zones, is being robbed by dating scammers. Getting some tips from vblogs, like Olga's, BEFORE you jump too deep into it, can potensially save quite much time and money. if looking for a Ukrainian lady (that is, it you are able to listen and learn to some degree, naturally)

Is there "police officer scams" in Ukraine where scammers pretend to be police officers and demand credit cards and money from tourists?

That is an outright lie, you saying that you do not have a lot of alcoholics in the Ukraine. Drinking, the consumption of alcohol and alcoholism is out of control in the Ukraine, Russia and Eastern European countries as a whole!

The best thing is to NEVER go to Ukrain. Shityyyy country. If you wanna have sex with Ukrainian girls (they're hot), just go to your local esort web sites. Ukrainian prostitutes are the best (with Russian ones). The rest of the country : nothing to see.

Actually, the 2nd type Olga is referring to are called "titushky" (тітушки). This comes from the last name of a young punk who was very athletic and wore a sports suit (like Adidas). He was hired by former president yanukovych to provoke people into fights. During the revolution which began in 2013, peaceful demonstrators would gather in Kyiv to peacefully demonstrate. The leader of the peaceful demonstrators emphasized that they no be violent. So, what yanukovch did was hired young punks in sports suits to follow the example of titushko and who would pick on and provoke people into fights by taking "cheap shots" at people who were not expecting a "low blow" to the groin or punch to the face when they were not looking and did nothing to deserve it. These young punks were paid by yanukovych to provoke peaceful people into fights in order to break up peaceful demonstrations. Then the police would move in to make arrests of peaceful people who were then blamed for violence when in fact they were NOT violent. But it was a well thought out plan to stop protestors by young punks who were paid by yanukovych. These titushky was call "provakatory" or in English, the "provokers".

When it comes to avoiding people who are drunk, I normally couldn't agree more if they are behaving badly. That being said, some people can be funny when they're drunk. Just ask the late Rob Ford, who imitated a Jamaican accent whilst drunk at a restaurant in Toronto's northwest end in 2014.

Nice video Olga. ;) Gopniks sound like some stereotypes here but I guess there are people that fit some stereotypes in all countries. We have them here too. They've just switched up from track suits and gold necklaces to other clothing and hangouts. ;D

I encountered with similar people in Vancouver Canada, and I just pretended that I don't understand English, in the end that guy just walked away. I guess if I ever visit Ukraine and encounter with them, I'll just speak Mandarin Chinese to them and to see how they react.

been to Kiev many times. Go have a great time ! Very safe city overall. I am married to a Ukrainian lady so have been there frequently. Have encountered the people she mentions but telling them to get the fuck out of your face or you'll kick their  asses gets the point across. I have only had to kick someone's ass twice in all the times I have been there, Most of the people are very nice in Ukraine. This is a minority she is referring. And they're all bark and no bite, pussy boys. They act like gangsters but squat to piss. Kiev is a beautiful city and Ukrainians are great people ! Go visit, you won't regret it !

One time after lunch at TGI Fridays off Kerschatyk, I gave ten dollars to a frail old woman beggar. No less than 30 seconds later seemingly out of nowhere, my friend and I were surrounded by at least 5 to 6 people all begging. We started to walk away fast....which turned into an all out sprint. That didnt stop them. I look back and even that freaking old lady has now turned into a runner. Anyways, half way down Kreschatyk they finally gave up. Still makes me laugh today when I think about it. God I miss those scammers.
