The remaining nationalities who want to go to Ukraine are required to apply for a visa.

Because of ongoing armed conflict in Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine, these
territories are dangerous for tourist trips. This is also why in 2018, the US State Department
included Ukraine into Group 2 in the Ranking of the most dangerous countries for Americans to visit. Germany, France, and Great Britain are also in this group (note that Russia and Turkey are listed in the dangerous Group 3). Travelers are advised to be extra careful due to possible riots. As for the other regions of Ukraine, you can travel there just as safe as, for example, in Poland or any other Eastern European country.
Below are some myths and facts about Ukraine’s safety:
Myth 1. Anti-Semitism and racism flourish in Ukraine.
Fact: Representatives of the most diverse nationalities live in Ukraine, so here we treat religions, skin color and other differences between people with respect and understanding;
Myth 2. In Ukraine, there are groups of aggressive people who can attack a passer-by on the streets.
Fact: The aggression on the streets of Ukraine you might have heard about is nothing more than just a media picture. At the moment, Ukrainian streets are safe and quiet, and rallies that sometimes take place in Kyiv city center are controlled by the police.
Myth 3: In Ukraine, they practice tortures and harassment.
Fact: Tortures and harassment may happen in the so-called DPR and LPR (Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and the Landlocked Proto-States in Eastern Ukraine), are not recommended as travel destinations. But no such cases were registered in the other regions of Ukraine.
