Questions and answers:
Roshan asks: I am an international student. I am going to study medicine in Ukraine. Can you please tell me if I get a part time job, how much can I make in a week?
International students need to get a work permit or residence permit to work officially in Ukraine. In 2016, the average salary in the country is about 200-250 USD per month for a full-time job, so it won't be an easy task to earn more as a student employed part-time.

John Downey asks: I would like to visit Berdyansk. Is it safe to visit Berdyansk? Thank you.
Berdyansk is located relatively far away from the conflict zone, the distance to Mariupol is about 80 km. From this point of view it is quite safe to visit this city. Of course you should follow standard precautions: don't walk alone at night, especially not in the central part of the city, avoid conflicts with locals, use MasterCard/Visa to keep your money, not cash, etc.
Tim Morris asks: I would like to come to Ukraine sometime between July and December of this year 2016. If I stay a month what would it cost me just stay in Zaporozhye for one month total combinations by that I mean comfortable and safe my travel expenses and other expenses housing accommodation what I need give me some idea please whenever you can offer information would be greatly appreciated thanks.
Currently (the summer of 2016), the average salary in Zaporozhye is about 250-300 USD per month. The cost of renting an apartment with one living room is about 100-150 USD per month. In general, I think that the sum starting from about 1,000 USD will be enough to live one month in Zaporozhye as a foreigner.
