Ukraine in 2019 - after 6 years of experience
Ukraine 2019
To start off,

I'd like to thank Roosh for creating our own little fortress mostly free from the modern day clown world): and also thank all of you for being part of it. Even though I consider myself pretty confident about where I am with life, game, finances etc. this forum is still a fantastic go to place to stay on track, get some top advice and improve/reflect on numerous topics.

I've only been following for 6 months or so but amount of knowledge and comfort i've received here is immense so I just figured I will give back to the community about things I know very well. Without sounding aloof or anything, I can truly describe my Ukraine experience similar to the king of Warsaw - for the more experienced rvf'ers.( whom I happened to know since i've lived there as well). Basically, the things I experienced in Ukraine by living on and off from may 2013 until now would probably to take a book to express everything I want to but let's start ( I only visit Ukraine for extended visits now btw)

I'm a 30 year old American of EE descent ( parents ran from commies) from NYC who moved to Poland in 2011 and took off from there to Odessa for a year and later to Kiev in 2013. I've had my extreme highs as well as extreme lows and vast majority of those were a result of either my good decisions of horrific decisions. Maybe with the exception of my first year when I was still learning Ukraine. Ukraine can be an absolute hit or miss and isn't for everyone but knowing what you are looking for and being around the right people or just having the experience can take you a long way. Let me summarize this for all of you and i'll be happy to expand further either through open chat, private messages or hopefully see some of you this summer as I am back to UA from this Friday until mid August or so. Mostly Kiev to begin with and Odessa from late June.

Let me start by something important but not often talked about. It is vital to pick the right city, one size fits all approach of just showing up to Kiev or Odessa won't work. These places can be excellent but not for everybody.

Kiev: Pro's - most western of all UA cities, feels like a much smaller and less diverse NYC. Of course, without the feminism and crazy prices. Very good for guys who enjoy bigger cities and I would say have above average game and more or less decent finances. You can enjoy Kiev on the budget and by meeting 5's and 6's and do your thing but I'm just trying to show all of you whats the best way to maximize your experience in UA. Kiev I would say can be great if you don't mind spending some coin ( still will cost fraction of any major western city) and are comfortable and confident with picking up/talking to high end tail. Nightlife can be very good but mostly only if you like the glitz and blitz and don't mind dressing up etc. Again, this is much cheaper version of NYC with top top talent if you know where to go. Also, need to be experienced with all the bs women bring since there is indeed plenty of goldiggers here but for the more advanced players this can produce opportunities as well as they aren't very smart. Best place in Europe to pull your sports illustrated cover level flag. If you have what it takes.

I'd avoid this place if you don't like fast paced cities, don't like spending money going out and wont accept investing in chicks one way or another either via paying for drinks in the club or going for nicer dates. Save your energy,time and money.

I can give details on where to go and what to do this forum gets going.

Odessa: Ukraine's Miami. Goldigger central but also a good place for ONS's starting from late June. Need to bring some money especially if you want to enjoy the city and have access to top talent. AVOID local girls as they are full of shit for the most part and don't buy their bs or how sweet or hot they can appear. There are exceptions of course but trust me on this one. At least 50% of girls are coming from other parts of Ukraine or former soviet union ( moldova,belarus,some russian girls still) and you'll catch your occasional flag from other countries. Few high end nightclubs , lounges to go to and plenty of decent restaurants and bars.

Also, it is my favorite city architecture wise so if you aren't into partying it is a good city to be in for sometime and just enjoy yourself. Can day game some and take it easy. Again, just be smart as the local girls can drain your budget. Good place to come for few days or for an extended period of time. Don't come before mid June and gtfo by October. Great if you are focused and aware. Otherwise, will crash and burn.

Now let's move on to rarely mentioned Ukraine B and C. Again,I know this because due to my work and connections I had to travel all over the place. I'll mention top cities I shortlisted.

Kharkiv : those of you who read Roosh's bang Ukraine will know more about it. The city hasn't really changed since then except that it's gotten much more pleasant to be in especially downtown and lots of new spots opened up. Cafes, bars etc. New clubs as well. Bolero and Opium ( former radmir) remain top places to pick up.

Kharkiv is a much cheaper,more relaxed version of Kiev and in my opinion by far the best place to pick you up ON'S or a relatively fast UA flag. Girls are more down to earth both college age girls as well as older chicks. Good city to work on your online business or anything else you got going with not very interesting but relaxing daytime vibe but with pretty good and very cheap nightlife. Lot's of talent but much worse English than Kiev or Odessa and not as fancy if that's what you're into. Still, lots of nice places. Not much to see sightseeing wise but a good quick trip or for longer if you want to focus on your stuff, save some money but either meet a stable gf or play around. I'm not here to judge anyone so you do what's best for you.

Lviv : very nice town, has Krakow or 2nd tier Austrian vibes due to history. Very good for few days, much less materialistic than Kiev , Odessa and even Kharkiv as people here are culturally closed to Poland , especially 2nd tier Poland. Very very good value for your buck. Can enjoy a good coffee, walk around. So so nightlife but 2-3 good clubs. Great for day game and to find a stable gf. One of the easier places to pick up chicks as long as you're not arabic or black but if you are you'll still find your niche so don't get discouraged. Lot's more nationalistic than other parts of UA but nothing crazy ( i'm not a liberal btw lol ). If you really want to find a wife or a girlfriend go to 2nd tier western ukraine towns such as ternopil, ivano frankivsk or lutsk. Extremely cheap, down to earth culture and if you're a high status western you will also have a field day. I've been out 5-6 in all of those 3 towns and pulled every single time. Need some Ukrainian,Polish. Might get away with basic English as people travel now etc.

Dnipro : Had my LTR there and have some great friends. Good town for chilled guys who don't like going out and just want to enjoy traditional working class Ukrainian city with some good looking but not very easy women. Mostly family oriented. Your status is high as long as you're not a foreign student. Cheap, relaxing but " boring".

Nikolaev/Kherson : Odessa 2.0 without the architecture but much easier to have fun with the girls without risking blowing money or getting rocked by scammers. Much cheaper but much uglier. Good for older men as both cities avoid the hordes of party goers and no blitz.

I'll end with this for now. Sorry for such a long post and maybe not very consolidated but I have so much to say that it's hard to start somewhere but I'm here to take this further.

Cheers!

RE: Ukraine in 2019 - after 6 years of experience
Great post...I'm assuming you speak fluent Russian/ Ukrainian if your EE background especially in 2 and 3 tier places

Would you say UA has gotten easier or harder when it comes to women over the last 5 years?

First time I came to Ukraine in 2013 ....I met a Oriental guy also from Canada. He was staying with some beautiful girl and his deal was to pay her 1K for one week. ...But she liked him so much that she said she didn’t want that money.
Back then when 1K US was a lot of money. Even now it still is a lot of money.

To find a Ukrainian girl like that these days are over

RE: Ukraine in 2019 - after 6 years of experience
Thank you vuko225 for sharing your experiences with us. I have been 2 times to Kiev - Great City. You get a lot for your money there. I made the same experience in Poland and Romania.
Lviv and Odessa is still on my list.
I would also like to go to Kharkiv but since I can't speak russian it probably has no purpose there.
You can share more of your experiences here if you want.

RE: Ukraine in 2019 - after 6 years of experience
I've spent a decent amount of time in most of the cities OP mentions and his assessment is spot on, especially the parts about Dnipro and Odessa.

I'd like to read about OP's relationships with Ukrainian lizards, breaking down what he did differently for LTRs vs short-term flings and Kiev vs second-tier Ukraine.

You can no longer find Ukrainian girls who charge you $1,000 per week? Bummer.

So . . . they now charge $2,000 per week? Dodgy

Here is the other part of the story with so many recent threads about older guys thinking about settling down.

That guy was not interested into her but he was able to save 1K

After decades of being "pumped and dumped" no wonder these girls are so jaded and materialistic.

RE: Ukraine in 2019 - after 6 years of experience
Good thread, interesting read!

I need an advice guys, I am 20 years old, green eyes, German/Russian looking type guy. I have good game, consider myself very good looking (everybody tells me I look like young Leonardo Dicaprio) seriously, no joke.

Ever since I started following Roosh (Since 2015) always wanted to go to EE.

Now that I am 20, I have saved around $8000, I will be going this month to Austria for two weeks (My first trip alone) and later on this year I plan long trip to Poland/Belarus/Ukraine/Russia. I have no problem with the language or culture since I speak fluent Russian and German as well.

The thing is, I am really not quite sure still, from what I have been reading here over the years that it seems to be getting worse every year. That there are many sex tourists and that it's not what it used to be, that its might be better for me going to South America or East Asia.

Any advice would be extremely appreciated! many thanks guys!

Good cover of cities mentality and general girls types.
I would be happy if you can share more info on your pickups here:
"ternopil, ivano frankivsk or lutsk. Extremely cheap, down to earth culture and if you're a high status western you will also have a field day. I've been out 5-6 in all of those 3 towns and pulled every single time."
As I been there for few days each and I felt it not easy at all, some girls very hesitant to meet foreigners, afraid of what people say (as those are small cities)
Please elaborate how you met, OG / NG and what was your game.

For any kind of guy, COUCHSURFING is working efficiently, young and new girls are joining and willing to meet.. you have to spend some time pipelining and hit the bars and clubs..you will be definitely successful to capture the EE flags.

Sorry guys! I've been away from my laptop for few days. Currently visiting some friends in Kharkiv - very solid town when it's nice out.

I'll report more on Kharkiv tomorrow and also respond to some topics touched above.

Speaking Ukrainian or at least Russian is key in 2nd tier western Ukraine. Other option is go to clubs where foreign students ( mostly turkish and arabic ) go as there you will get girls who go there specifically to meet a foreigner for ONS since there isn't much goldigging in W-Ukraine.

Go to packed bars or clubs and try your luck. Day game around uni's.
If you speak no Russian or Ukrainian, I'd say stick to Lviv as far as western Ukraine goes.

There is English spoken in many other Western Ukrainian cities, not just Lvov

Looking forward to your report on Kharkiv. Despite this forum - and it being one of the cities Roosh reported on back in the day - it's still off the radar for most people in 2019.

Dr Johnson rumbles with the RawGod. And lives to regret it.
