Summary: The pros of living in Ukraine include its rich cultural heritage, its vibrant cities, its affordable cost of living, and its beautiful landscapes. On the other hand, the cons of living in Ukraine include its political instability, its weak economy, its poor infrastructure, and its high levels of corruption.

What are the pros and cons of living in Ukraine?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Ukraine responded:

"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the low cost of living in Ukraine, as well as the vibrant culture and friendly people. They also enjoy the country's rich history and the many opportunities to explore the outdoors. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the language barrier and bureaucracy to be challenging. Additionally, the infrastructure in some parts of the country can be lacking, making it difficult to access certain services," explained one expat in Ukraine.

"I like the neighborhood I live in for there is everything you need or possiblly think of. And in summer time you can go to a lake, one by walking, the other using a trolley or bus with a few stops and then some walking. It's all great. Public transportation is great too," said one expat in Kiev.
