The 4th edition of our Ukraine guide was published in May 2014. Due to the dramatic changes that have taken place in Ukraine since this book was sent to the printer (the Euromaidan protests and the annexation of Crimea), we have produced a special update for travellers, as an addendum for the guidebook. You can download it here.
This update was written after the author's visit to Ukraine in April 2014 and it includes a new chapter as well as the corrected pages from the guidebook.

Any idea about how much can be a taxi from Kiev Zhulyani to Tirapol in Transnistria ?
It's around 490 kms and we will arrive at 2h30 a.m. I know there are trains and buses but I'm in a hurry and don't mind to pay more, just need to know more and less how much it could be.
Thank you all !!!
Im in contact with a tour company about joining their Chernobyl tour but as I am arriving late for the kiev meeting point, they offered to charge me $100USD to take me from the airport direct to the Dytyatky check point to meet the rest of the group.
IS this price about right of do you think I can get much cheaper - Im curious to know if they are ripping me off or not
thanks for your help!
