Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy a lot of stuff in Ukraine. According to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s ranking of the cost of living in 133 major cities, Kyiv — with a population of 3 million people — is the eighth cheapest major city in the world.
The ranking is based on the cost of living through tracking prices of food and other items.
Kyiv, along with Bucharest and New Delhi, comes in at 124th – six places down from last year, the report says.
The results coincide with another survey by Expatistan, which found that Kyiv is the third cheapest major city in the world among 213 municipalities surveyed. Only Hyderabad, India, and Tblisi, Georgia.
