When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Kharkov, they said:

"Before retiring in Kharkov, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as English is not widely spoken. It is also important to research the cost of living in the city, as prices can vary significantly from other parts of the country. Additionally, expats should be aware of the local laws and regulations, as well as any visa requirements that may apply.
