What advice would you offer others about banking abroad?

Gregarious replied most recently with:
I opened a hgrevna, and also a separate dollar account at Privat Bank. They demand I pay exchange rate to convert to hgr, then back to dollars, rather than simply accept my dollars from my own account in Beverly Hills. I do not know or understand banking shenanigans/scams/regulations, but I understand they are all con men and robbers. But how do I get dollars in cash here, without getting robbed by them?
