Good to know
Ukrainian currency is called Hryvna and is divided into 100 Kopecks. For an average exchange rate, count that a dollar is worth 8.00 Hryvnas, Euro about 10.00 Hryvnas and British Pound 10 Hryvnas. It is best to bring USD or EUR in cash to Ukraine for easy exchange, but you can also safely withdraw money from ATMs featuring the international banking/credit symbols. Always carry small bills to pay for items such as cigarettes or taxi fares. You can withdraw hryvnas (UAH) and, in some ATMs, USD. Many prices (such as airline tickets) are stated using an abbreviation y.e. in Cyrillic, pronounced oo yeah:-) One y.e. is one American dollar. Spend all hryvnas before leaving the country as you can't take them out.

ATM's: The NBU has decreed that commercial banks must ensure uninterrupted operation of their ATM's  and put cash in them in order to ensure prompt payment of wages, pensions, stipends and other social benefits as well as to dispense cash on payment cards issued by other banks.
