Because of my love for Ukraine, I once thought that in a few years I would love to spend 3-4 months living in Ukraine, 3-4 months living in the Caribbean and the same in the US.

With Ukraine's turn away from democracy, to a totally restrictive autocratic govt, I no longer even want to visit this country...and I certainly would not consider investing in any form of business in this corrupt country.
