Ukraine's Orange Revolution has ushered in a new era, and a rousing sense of rebellion and thirst for change still lingers in the air here. In the frenetic capital Kyiv citizens flaunt bold fashions and fresh attitudes as they smoke, drink, and dance wherever they want.
At the dawn of the new millennium, things began to look up for Ukraine. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant was closed, and the last Soviet nuclear missile silo destroyed in 2001. The economy started a period of sustained growth and in 2002 the government decided to abandon its policy of neutrality.

WHETHERING THE WEATHER
Ukraine has your typical harsh eastern European winter; however, it is shorter than most countries of this region. The northern parts of the Ukraine see the temperature rise from an icy range of 14 to 25°F in January to a comfortable 59 to 77°F range in July.
The southern regions are just that bit friendlier, with cold but still milder winters and slightly warmer summers. Moderate rainfall occurs the year round but is nowhere particularly heavy at any time.
