Things to consider when moving to Kyiv? (Kiev)

Hello,

I'm a Canadian citizen, currently considering moving to Kyiv in the Fall. I've visited Ukraine before on numerous occasions, but just want to get some advice from expats who may have moved from North America or Europe.

- How hard will it be to get along without Russian or Ukrainian language background? (intent is to learn)

- How much of a culture shock from NA or EU countries? anything I might take for granted in terms of quality of life that I might not take into account?

- Is crime a problem in the city? commentary on safety in general?

- What are the great things? worst things?

Just trying to do my research and get as much information as possible. thanks!
