  De Ribas Street (called Derobassovskaya Street)
by hunterV

Please avoid taking part in any street games such as lottery, "thimble", etc., no matter how harmless and attractive they might seem to you. In fact, these games might include the whole performance of many "actors" who are a part of the gang, but it is common knowledge that they are all aimed at squeezing money out of you.
Alas, we all have to be careful about buying liquors at the street kiosks: there is a lot of fake vodka, cognac, brandy, champagne and wine.
It?s always safer to buy them at a big supermarket or at a distillery store or a specialized wine store.
There are also health risks like everywhere alse in Ukraine: TB (it's just your hygiene) , HIV, sex-transmitted diseases (it's your descretion).
Take care and ~ be safe ~ !
