Living and working in Kiev

I've got an opportunity to open an office in Kiev as I have some new clients there.
Has anyone any experience of living there? I would be very grateful for any info from fellow Arrsers.

Not too bothered about the bureaucratic side of things as that can be arranged through a Ukrainian partner. I'm more interested in which direction people think the city is going in the next 5 to 10 years.

Has it started growing yet?, has it levelled off?, attitude of the people, this kind of thing.

Potentially, it is a massive investment of time (And money), away from my home and baby daughter for up to 6 months to set it up, so any comments are very welcome.

Thanks in advance.
Don't know Kiel apart from having a few good nights on the pisch there.

Be very, very careful and don't put a cent more than you can afford to lose into the venture.
