on the edge of the Muslim insurgency?? Caution is in order
I’ve been researching Ukraine for about two years. For some reason it’s outside our federal government’s sphere of influence. Even a small SS check goes a long way there. The women are legendary. Family is still of the utmost importance. The bureaucraic nuances can be managed with applications of cash.
Permanent residency requires jumping through lots of hoops or a single payment of $100,000 to, euphimisticaly speaking, improve the country when paid to the appropriate governmen ministry official.
I plan on doing some on the ground looking within the next few months.
Ukrainian banks even pay a far better interest rate than available there. Like anything else, let the buyer beware. I’m still in bewaring mode.
