Hi everyone,

I lived in Kiev, Ukraine from 2014-15 for a project and loved it. Learned some Russian and can understand basic Ukrainian, made plenty of friends, and only had good experience etc. But my worst nightmare/experience when it comes to Ukraine seems to have come after I left the country:

About me: Male, 27, working in Germany, originally from Indonesia.

Problem: I visited Ukraine in May 2018, that is, 2 months ago. Met with an old fling - we were in a relationship when I was in the country 3 yrs back - and had unprotected sex. Long story short, the girl is telling me she is pregnant. There is a high possibility she is true. Unfortunate as it might be, I am very anti-kids, have been 100% transparent about this with my partners as well, and definitely do not want to have any particular obligation toward the child. (So much that I was to get a vasectomy next year.) Of course, in an ideal scenario, I would like to have nothing to do with the child or this person - financially or otherwise.

I am quite hurt/stressed about it since this girl did know my status on kids as well and that I want to focus on myself/career etc.

I will seek any legal advice eventually and if needed, but it would greatly help me if you can give my any advice/suggestion or have similar example nearby etc.

Questions:

  1. Do I owe her child support, if in case the child is indeed mine? Does it depend on her status as well, for instance, what if she gets married tomorrow?

  2. What is the amount I am looking into? Do I have any other obligation toward the child as well, in a legal sense? If I forego any payment, does it negatively impact my future visits to Ukraine?

I sent a package using USPS from USA to Ukraine on 29 June. On 6 July, it was listed as "In Transit". It's 20 July now and still no status update except that "In Transit" status on 6 July LOL I guess it's lost?

For the life of me I can't remember the name of the Sunflower Seed brand I used to buy in Ukrainian supermarket. All I know it that it was colorful bag with a picture of a squirrel or chipmunk on it. I used to bring back a dozen bags in my luggage but I was hoping to find some online or at a Ukrainian food store. Anyone have any ideas?

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine simplified the procedure for the employment of foreigners in Ukraine and abolished 22 obsolete legal acts in various fields within the framework of the sixth "deregulation Cabinet".

Hey there,

I and two of my friends are planning to go to the Ukraine 21st of July and looking for a transport to Odessa from Kyiv airport. I've tried using BlaBla car app but unfortunately no success yet.

Could you be so kind and recommend me similar app to find a transport during my holidays. Thank you in advance!

Hi all, i'm looking for advice from those who are US green card holders who have gotten travel visas for their relatives to visit them in the US. The embassy in Kiev just seems to indiscriminately deny applications.

I’m an experienced Canadian trekker coming to Ukraine in October and I want to do some camping/trekking. Can you offer any tips as to routes and weather conditions?

Thanks!

I am currently in Kiev, for about the 5th time. I'm 29 male from Ireland. I have seen most of the tourist attractions (I think). Why I am posting here, is because I want to understand Ukranian people and Ukranian culture more. I have a million questions about life in Ukraine, that I would like to ask. I am free from now until Friday evening. Would any of you be so kind to let me into your day to day lives? I would love to meet all ypu lovely Ukranians! Spasiba in advance. :)

Hello, i’m a dutch citizen. I can supposedly stay in Ukraine only 90 days in any 180 day period. Is this really implemented? I’d like to live in Ukraine, and simply do visa runs every three months (fly to budapest for a day or two, and come back).

Does Ukrainian immigration care about this rule, do they check? Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks!

Hi!

Could someone please reccommend some bigger technology related news outlets in Ukraine?

I’m compiling an overview of the bigger technology news outlets in certain parts of Europe and was hoping maybe the reddit community could help me out with it a little.

Would be extremely thankful for some suggestions!
