While you're checking out the gorgeous women in the video, listen to what he has to say about the city/country. This man was born in 1940, making him about 70 years old:

Well, this video cinches it. I was thinking about spending three months in Kiev in the fall, now I'm pretty certain I will.

And thanks for all the RT videos. I've got to start checking them out regularly. Living in a country without a legitimate news source can be frustrating.

According to the BBC, the temperature in Kiev will be -22 degrees centigrade tonight. Winters can be very harsh.

Yes, but it's probably state-controlled heating, meaning it's on all the time and intense. When I lived in Russia it was so hot in the winter that I had to keep the windows cracked to moderate the temp. There is no shorting of heating fuel in Russia. Also, all of Europe is going through an unusual cold snap last week and this week. It's in the 20s in central Italy right now, and we're expecting a second snowstorm of 15+ inches this weekend. Check the weather.com annual averages for temps. Besides, if you find a nice Ukrainian girl, she'll keep you nice and warm.

Yes, my sentiments exactly! I am in the process of learning Russian (since that is the language used in western Urkraine for the most part) and I am working two jobs. I don't have much free time but who cares, some day I will be visiting a country that I have always wanted to visit, meeting the type of women that I have always wanted to meet! :D

Amazing video! Now I understand why my friends want to move back to Kiev from the U.S. It changed so much! Looks amazing, so historic and modern. I am definitely up for visiting Kiev as well.

Kiev

Post by WorldTraveler » March 16th, 2012, 11:28 pm

I've lived in Kiev before. It is Westernizing very quickly. It's getting very expensive. All those beautiful shots of Kiev are all taken around the historic central area of town. The whole city does not look beautiful. It looks just like the typical ugly Russian city. If you've got lots of money it could be a great place to live. If you can't get a women, you can always buy a whore there. If a guy this age has a young beautiful girl, he's paying a lot to keep her! Also this guy is working for the Ukrainian airline to promote Ukraine.
