Ukrainians are generous, be ready to tour your friends' houses for dinners and drinks. Show good manners by taking off your shoes when you enter the house. You won't go wrong with bringing a small present as a thanks for inviting you. When you host a party and make a toast to thank your guests for coming, they might think it's time to leave so save that for the end. For heartbreakers - remember the ring is worn on right hand here and flowers are given in odd numbers!
Oops! There seem to be more pickpockets lately out there. Ignore tricksters claiming you've dropped some money, trying to make you take out your wallet. Some, though dressed normally, will show you a fake police ID and demand to check your documents - do not show them anything and try to walk away or call someone on your phone. Ladies, watch your bags closely in crowded places - even in cafes and restaurants - have your belongings always in sight.
