I am American and I have been to Kiev and Odessa .
My personal exsperiance is to stay away from Odessa and vist Kiev if you must go to Ukraine.
And you better study some Russian language and writing to !
If you do go to Ukriane don't pass up a trip to next door Moldova and then see Chisinau and all the wine cellars and visit in the northern part of the country Soroca to see the Fortress of King Stephen Cel Mare or plan a visit to the old Village of Orhei Vech with the lime stone caves used by many cutures of long ago .
If you need information about Moldova or hiring a tour guide check this site out www.moldovatraders.com
Your really safe in Chisinau Moldova I am sure of this because I live there as much as 1 1/2 -3 month out the year .
So have fun and good luck if you plan a adventure to eather one of these country's.
