Hey guys,

I have a guy traveling to Kharkov next month, he is asking me to recommend him a reliable interpreter, or someone to contact in case he gets robbed or something. Anyone has any suggestions? Is this the right section to ask questions about this?

Yes I can help you there Elenag.......visit here, tell him to ask for Helen (the owner) or Natasha (translator), tell her Chris from the UK recommended her and she will look after him. She also has some great apartments if he is interested.

If that is no good, I know a good lady personally who lives there, she is usually very busy but she may be interested in helping out.

Thanks, Chris. I take it that you have used them before yourself?

He was, indeed, also choosing between an apartment and a hotel, so the apartment service that they offer also could come in handy.

Yes I speak from personal experience, they were very helpful to me and I still remain friends with the owner, her ladies and another special lady over there, owners best friend. There is one virtually brand new apartment right on the main square I can highly recommend, I have used it and it is not that expensive, it is CO012 on Constitution Square. All mod cons, very good.
