"Crime is a problem in Ukraine, with reports of corruption, organized crime, and human trafficking. The country has seen an increase in violent crime in recent years, including robberies, burglaries, and assaults. Drug trafficking is also a major issue, with Ukraine being a transit point for illegal substances. Cybercrime is also on the rise, with hackers targeting businesses and individuals," said a member in 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," remarked another expat who made the move to Kharkov, Ukraine.
