"Take your identity card or at least a copy!" Kiev Warnings Or Dangers Tip by xxgirasolexx

Kiev Warnings and Dangers: 76 reviews and 49 photos

Many people have said that they never had problems with being stopped by police. However, I was one of the "lucky" ones that got stopped for a check. When I was with my Ukrainian friends, I never had difficulties or problems. However, everytime I would go with international students from the universities such as those from India, Iran, Korea, well, we always got stopped and they always wanted to check our documents. One time a police man even followed me to my flat and came inside my flat and looked around at all my personal belongings. So, always be sure that you have some way to identify yourself. You never know when you might need it.
