Questions and answers:
harry asks: I want to buy flats in kiev or kharkiv region and give them on rent. is it safe bussines in ukraine for foreigners?
I think it doesn't matter if you are a foreigner or not (it may be even your advantage someway). If you are not afraid to have business with additional risks in a country of young democracy and market economy with its typical imperfections (high level of corruption, crime situation etc.) you will be successful. And here is the rating about doing business in Ukraine
Alirza asks: I'd like to start a bussiness in Ukraine, but i'm afraid about criminal situation, racissim,and unstable situation. How is the general atmospher in Ukraine,regions like Odessa,Mikolayiv??Are they safe?
The problem of Odessa is street crime. 60% of people (October 2007) don't feel themselves safe during evening or night time. The same situation is with Nikolaev. Unfortunately I don't have enough information about Odessa organized crime. Ukraine statistics: 2006 - every third crime was not solved. My advice is: try so find someone who is already doing business in these cities and ask him the specific questions.
