Most visits to Ukraine are trouble-free but you should be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate international terrorist attacks, which could be against civilian targets, including places frequented by foreigners.
Travellers should be aware of petty crime, particularly in crowded areas, tourist spots and on public transport. There have been some reports of racially motivated attacks towards travellers of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent, and travellers belonging to religious minorities.
As of November 2010, Ukrainian Mediterranean Airlines remains on the European Commission’s list of air carriers that are subject to an operating ban or restrictions within the European Union. Ukrainian Mediterranean Airlines, Ukraine Cargo Airways and Volare were previously on the list, but have been removed in the latest release.
