When visiting Kiev (or Ukraine) do you have to pay off the police with 10 or 20USD to get them to leave you alone?
I heard a story (which I doubt) that there was a guy leaving Kiev and at the end of his vacation and heading back to the USA and at the airport, the police strip searched him and took his remaining money, 1000USD, and then put him on the plane for home. Is this possible and/or likely? I'm going there in May. I'm a 39 year old Awerican male. Do I need to be very careful?
