In Reply to: Can DEM be used in the Ukraine? posted by Hannah on March 23, 2001 at 10:48:18:
: A friend of mine is travelling to Odesa soon and needs to know if she can take and use DEM rather than local currency. Or would USD be better?
Please advise your friend not to use foreign
currency when making purchases from private individuals at places such as bazaars and street markets. It is forbidden! She will be safer if she uses hryvnias. A friend of my got in trouble from Ukrainian authorities because she did that.
She needs to exchange currency in an authorized place such as a bank, never from a private individual.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me via e-mail.
Thank You, and I wish your friend a good time in Ukraine.
