Why are you calling us stupid and idiotic?
We're sharing our perceptions and experiences and those are obviously different from yours. Though that experience may be two years old, it may have some value still. And, not everyone that reads these posts is going to Kiev, where there are swanky supermarkets. Some people may be interested in other types of shopping in other cities that don't have the amenities that Kiev offers.
Don't say that we "have no idea about" when we're describing what we have seen. Why are you so angry at us?
: Do you think that ukrainian Spar or Billa has any different quality and service standards than those in Europe? Nowadays in Kiev is over twenty food superstores where all different types of meat cut and packaged. Some local food superstores chains were so successful that they expand to Russia. Silpo now opened in Moscow. How stupid is when people discuss something they have no idea about. If you been here 5-4-3-2 years ago donít share your comments because the changes are so huge. And the last how idiotic you should be to buy somewhere alcohol or any food product, to try it, feel that it is fake and taste is awful and still drink or eat it knowing you will be poisoned.
: : All the outdoor markets have inspectors, sometimes I am told they have gieger counters.
: : Thats not to say that the produce is perfect for eating, a lot of people have become ill recently because eating sausage made from illegal import of western meat waste/pet food.
: : be caring when buying vodka that it not alcohol distilled from thing for industrial usages.
: : Same thing for so called western supermarkets.
