Are racism and discrimination present in Ukraine?
The Ukrainian mentality is very hospitable and friendly. Ukraine is a multinational country. This is one of the factors that affect the relatively low level of racism in Ukraine. Although, we understand that racism can sometimes be encountered absolutely in any country, and it often depends on the level of education of individuals, not the whole nation. If you talk about the whole nation of Ukrainians, it is quite tolerant, especially in comparison with neighbouring countries in Europe, where, due to the dominance of emigrants, there is a much higher racism level.
Why is there a high level of tolerance and hospitality among Ukrainians to the other people and nations? The answer is simple - this has been already part of the historically formed Ukrainian mentality. For example, for centuries the Ukrainian lands have been under the rule of other states and always had to get along with foreigners. Ukraine was a part of the USSR, the state was consisting of 15 union republics and hundreds of peoples, and one of the key principles of the USSR system was the peaceful coexistence of all peoples.
Also, the tourism industry is developing in Ukraine, that makes contemporary citizens even more hospitable to foreigners, and international students in Ukraine, as they are the source of the Ukrainian economy growth.
In this topic, there is only one potential problem - this is the rental of housing for international students. Unfortunately, many international students have shown themselves not very well in the eyes of local Ukrainian lessors. Those, who give their apartments for a rent, are often afraid to rent them to foreign tenants, because they do not want students break or make something dirty. Moreover, it is more difficult to come to a mutual understanding with a foreign tenant. Therefore, the only form of discrimination against international students in Ukraine can be called only that it is a little harder and sometimes a little more expensive to rent an apartment for them.
However, our EDUkraine company knows how to solve this problem and we help all our clients, in case of need, to rent an apartment. Our firm acts as a guarantor and guarantees good behaviour of our international students to the lessor. We can even rent a dwelling on the name of our firm and an international student will calmly live in it without having unnecessary contacts with the owner of the dwelling.

Often, agencies abroad only collect students, take from them a high commission, and then pass on to the same agencies from Ukraine, that do all the work.
