Is the cost of living in Ukraine high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Ukraine, they wrote:

"I am not certain, but I think that a couple can find an apartment for 300, to 400 month US Live near subway and forget old idea about driving everywhere, get some much needed exercise on foot))) Taxi service is cheap 10. us$ for a 45 minute ride maximum. 15 hour train ride for $10.00 US with sleeping birth )))," explained one expat living in Kharkov.

"Very difficult to say, depends on: * If you have any dependents, ie children to support. * If you rent a fully furnished apartment from an agency it's expensive, better to buy or find a private landlord. * You have to buy extra clothing for the winter, it's inescapable unless you want to freeze your knees off," said one expat in Kharkov.

"The cost of living in Ukraine is generally quite affordable compared to other European countries. Prices for basic necessities such as food, transportation, and housing are generally lower than in other parts of Europe. Eating out in restaurants is also relatively inexpensive, and there are plenty of affordable options for entertainment. Overall, Ukraine is a great place to live if you are looking for a budget-friendly destination," wrote a person living in Ukraine.
