In the past I have been on the border of Slovakia and Ukraine. From last years I have been in Nikolaev and Odessa.
Your country is going slowly in the right direction but there is a tremendous difference in rich and poor people.
I am even not used of all the poor street dogs and cats who are everywhere in the cities.
Sometimes you're going back 50 years in time and on the other hand some cities are very modern and everything is there. The infra structure is a disaster, especially in Winter or short after the Winter.
Just for inform people how your country is suffering in transport:
Greetings from Holland to Ukraine.
