"This is a picture of the new..." Ukraine Local Custom Tip by Michael_D

Ukraine Local Customs: 108 reviews and 210 photos


This is a picture of the new money Grivney. When i was there the Ukraine was still using Cuponum and not only was there almost nothing to buy prices were high to boot. My friends in Ukraine tell me over the past 6 years sadly the economic conditions have only gotten worse. there are more products to buy, but fewer people have the money to buy anything.
Over the years the inflation rate has been so high that it precludes the ability to quote relative prices. That doesnt make for a stable economy or a fun life. Of all the people I met on my trip that I would consider a friend...over half now live in the somewhere other than Ukraine, mostly in the United States.
