Ukraine visa trouble-free

This week in London I bought a Ukrainian visa. It took three days and cost forty pounds. It was a "private" visa, which means that I found a travel office in Kiev and had permission to quote them as host. They are, in fact, booking my trains across Ukraine and on to Poland. I asked them to book my a cheap hotel, chosen from the Lonely Planet guide, but they undercut that with an offer of a room in a centrally placed flat. I gave the flat's address in the application form, but so far as I casn see nobody checked anything, so I could have put down any likely address. I applied for a six day stay, and was given six months ! Nothing in the visa says where I'm to go: I could pop off to Odessa or Lvov if I had the time.

The application needed two passport photos, and they take payment by cheque or postal order, not in cash.

Possible offices to write to are these.
