>> Need to know if I can bring my car into Ukraine,
Yes you can. You can bring it in for temporary use, but you will not be able to sell it there. You will also need to take it out of the country once in a while. I think it's ince a year but I am not too sure. Otherwise you will have to pay a high duty on it.
>> is there high speed internet available to residental apartments,
It depends on the neighborhood. Even where available, it is expensive and billed by how much data you transfer. No unlimited service available.
>> can you receive US TV broadcasts via cable or satellite,
You can via both cable and satellite.
what would be a good cell phone service provider to reach the US?
There are four different wireless service providers in Kiev: UMC http://www.umc.ua, Kyivstar http://www.kyivstar.net, Wellcom http://www.welcome2well.com and Golden Telecom http:/gsm.goldentele.com. The later two only provide service in Kiev where as the others provide service all over Ukraine.
If not a secret, what US company will you be working for?
