    Josu :
    The fact is that salaries in Kiev are the highest in the country,so that is where you will find the majority of prestige cars,if you go to the provincial cities,you will find that the majority of late model cars on the streets will be Ladas and ZAZ Lanos

    Do you live in a provincial city in Ukraine? because I personally live in the city where the average montly salary 350 dollars (though official) I saw only 2 car Geely CK a day, ZAZ and LADA are more common, but according to my observations is not more than 20-25 percent of cars on the streets…

    Those are the photos of very prestigious area ok Kyiv. They don’t reflect the real situation.

    very prestigious? i don’t think so…Obolon district with this ugly apartments buildings is not VERY prestigious. Very prestigious is Kozin or KonchaZaspa with Ferrari and Lamborghini…
