Welcome to Kharkiv

Just 40km from the Russian border, Kharkiv is home to Russian-speaking intelligentsia – scientists and engineers who turned it into the brain centre of the Soviet defence industry in the 1960s. Their grandchildren are now reinventing it as a hub of Ukraine's fledgling IT industry, with an active rock-music scene and a sprouting hipster culture.
