: I INTEND TO TRAVEL FROM USA TO ODESSA VIA KIEV THIS APRIL. HERE ARE MY LIST OF QUESTIONS IF ANYONE CAN HELP:
: 1. DO I NEED AN INVITATION TO APPLY FOR VISA? HOW FAR IN ADVANVE DO I NEED APPLY? WHAT IS THE COST?

No invitation required, get a business class visa, good for 3yrs at $75US. They will ask you your business when you deplane.

: 2. SHOULD I TAKE PLANE/TRAIN/BUS FROM KIEV TO ODESSA? COMMENTS REGARDING SAFETY OF ALL THREE WOULD BE WELCOME.
: IS CONNECTION FROM AIRPORT TO TRAIN EASY?

Train. Easy. Fly if you don't care about site seeing.

: 3. I INTEND TO SATY WITH SOMEONE IN ODESSA. WHAT DO I NEED FOR SPENDING MONEY? IS IT SAFE TO CARRY? WILL MY ATM CARD WORK IN ODESSA? HOW ABOUT VISA/MASTERCARD?

$1,500US lasted me easily 9 days and included my plane ticket. Carry $500US cash. Visa/MC will work.

: 4. ARE THERE ANY COMMON THINGS THAT I ANNOT BRING INTO COUNTRY? FOR INSTANCE; CANDY, VIDEO CAMERA, TOYS, ETC???

I don't know how they'd look on a laptop computer. No contraband, of course.

: 5.DO I NEED TO BUY DRINKING WATER OR IS TAP OK? ANY OTHER THINGS TO AVOID HEALTH WISE?
: THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU MAY PROVIDE

Bottled water only, throw a few in your suitcase. There are different bacteria in the water. You can get cokes.
