I know there is war in the Eastern part of Ukraine at the moment but how is the situation in Kiev? Is it safe to travel there at the moment?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • What is safe to you? See this meta question for help on how to render the question less opinion-based. – JoErNanO Mar 10 '15 at 19:27
  • In 2014 more than 2 million tourists visited Crimea alone, and that'd be the arguably more dangerous spot, as viewed by outsiders. But how do you want an answer? Can I just say 'uber safe, you'll be fine' or 'terrifying, run away'? Please do have a look at the meta and the help center on asking subjective questions on safety - perhaps asking for some crime statistics against tourists would be a better solution. In its current state it's likely to be closed. – Mark Mayo Mar 10 '15 at 23:51

    -1 This is somewhat a link-only answer. This is a QA site. Telling someone to RTFM doesn't really qualify as a quality answer. Moreover links a prone to 404-oblivion. Care to expand? – JoErNanO Mar 10 '15 at 19:26
