The cost of a monthly rent of a studio apartment in Ukraine amounts to 3053 UAH per month, 2-room apartment - 4203 UAH, 3-room - 5411 UAH, the analysts estimated.
Thus, an average Ukrainian with a salary of 3 thousand UAH can not afford to rent even a one-bedroom apartment, according to the study.
As we found out, the rent is very different depending on the region. The lowest prices for rental properties are in the Ternopil region, here the bedsit can be rented for less than 1400 UAH. 1500 - 1600 UAH per month is the cost of one-room apartment in Transcarpathia, in Ivano-Frankivsk region, as well as in Kirovograd, Sumy and Chernihiv regions. However, an average salary in these areas is also lower than the average rate - 2000 - 2450 UAH.

Daria Shapovalova presents young Ukrainian designers who can compete with their Western counterparts.
Recently in Kiev, there is a new fashion - to wear clothes created by Ukrainian designers. Moscow has seen a similar surge of patriotism relating to their designers 5 years ago, and we have this trend only now. Personally, I associate this fact with the emergence of many new and really interesting names in Ukrainian fashion. Unlike the previous generation, these designers want to create a collection and create business in the international context, and they are not satisfies with "success among friends". To draw attention to new and interesting names, the team Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days organized a special shooting with me, and at my request, it was attended by the senior fashion editor of Ukrainian VOGUE Julia Pelipas together with Kiev fashion photographer Cate Underwood.
Summit, scheduled for February 25, will not affect the progress of the simplification of visa regime between the EU and Ukraine, they promise in Europe.
The European Commission (EC) expects Ukrainian report in respect of the implementation of the first phase of the Action Plan on visa liberalization, and says that the promotion of the second phase of the process is in any way connected with the forthcoming EU-Ukraine summit.
Yesterday, the Verkhovna Rada passed two laws in the visa liberalization action plan with the EU, including - switching to biometric documents. The deputies took into account the President's proposals, thus guaranteeing the signing of both laws. Visa dialogue with the EU has become a priority for the president, because it is the only area in which Ukraine can make progress before the summit with the EU. However, the official Kiev can go to the second stage PDVL only in summer.
The Verkhovna Rada re-adopted the law vetoed by the president "On the uniform state demographic registry and proof of citizenship and identity of Ukraine", better known as the Law of biometric passports. Parliament has taken into account all the amendments proposed by the President. In addition, the Parliament approved the previously vetoed amendments to the law "On the protection of personal data", taking into account the proposals of President Viktor Yanukovych.

Approval of both documents is a requirement of PDVL. The efforts concentration of the authorities to meet the requirements of the plan is due to the fact that this is the only area of relations with the European Union, where Ukraine is still possible to make progress in the short term.
Single tax payers, trading imported jewelry, watches and electronics in Ukraine, will have to use cash machines in parallel with expenditure records for purchase of such goods. However, without increased border control and combating corruption, the schemes remain attractive.
The Cabinet of Ministers has registered a draft of amendments to the Tax Code №11404 in the Verkhovna Rada. It introduced a number of measures to "adequate control" over the sale of goods of foreign production.
The regulatory authorities will pay special attention to single tax payers of I-III groups, who trade highly liquid foreign goods - jewelery, watches, home appliances, computers and mobile phones.
They will be obliged to use the registrars for cash settlement operations, and the entrepreneurs who are not subject to VAT - will also have to keep records of the cost of such imports. A certified copy of the customs declaration will be mandatory for accounting, writes "Kommersant-Ukraine".
