Ukraine In Your Pocket

Ukraine In Your Pocket
As most people around the world have probably seen on the news, Kyiv is currently experiencing a certain amount of civil unrest, as pro-European demonstrators clash with the government's security forces. While the most of the city remains by and large safe for visitors, and the airports open with all flights landing and taking off as scheduled, note that with the city effectively blockaded it may take several hours to get to and from the airport.
Indeed, getting around the city at all is difficult, and in many cases impossible: the metro is currently closed.
While we recommend staying away from the city centre, if you are willing to come to the Maidan where the main protests are taking place, it is generally safe to do if you stay away from the front lines.
