Used to be one of the greatest cities in Ukraine when it had its large population of Jewish Russians. It was one of the main cultural centers of Ukraine with one of the largest theaters and a large amount of poets, writers and musicians. Once communism fell and the Jewish people of Ukraine were able to get out, it became a complete shithole. Bandits now rob anyone from tourists to grandmas. Kids walk down the street drunk. Many young girls are turning to prostitution to make a living. Thanks the the Ukes and Russians still left the city is a total shithole now.
I wish I can go back to the Chernovtsi of the 80s
