Is there a lot of crime in Kharkov?

Answer this Question

We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Kharkov is generally considered to be a safe city. However, like any other city, there is some crime. Petty theft, such as pickpocketing, is the most common type of crime in Kharkov. There have also been reports of more serious crimes, such as muggings and assaults, although these are relatively rare," remarked another expat who made the move to Kharkov, Ukraine.

"First a comment about the conflict in he Donbass region. The Ukraine is such a big country compared with England, we only had one small incident last summer in the city, but Kharkov where I live has been peaceful. I have to say the youth in this country demonstrate far more respect for adults than in the UK. I've never seen any problems. You do get a few drunks at night in the parks etc, but I don't go to any potentially risky places. As I stated above, crime takes on a different guise here in the form of corruption. And I do get ripped off occasionally by market traders because I'm foreign. On balance, especially in the evening, I'd actually say that Kharkov is a safer place to be than in England. There are many inner city areas in the UK that are best avoided at night," explained one expat living in Kharkov, Ukraine.
