Don't know if this relates any much to the highways but I still decided to post
Lviv Region..somewhere by Carpathian mountains..
Looks somewhat okay! except its a 1 lane on each side.

Odesa - Chisinau(Moldova).

and again BIG OUCH on Kyiv - Odesa Highway(traffic)..some people just don't wanna learn

Yeah, it would be funny if it was not for the dead body in the beginning of the video.

Oops, didn't see that one. For the rest the situation is quite "Ukrainian".

Yes, I think it was suicide too. Because it didn't make sense, he jumped right before the car. That's a disgusting way to die, endangering other peoples lives

Well, to be fair I should tell you that I encountered a very similar situation on I-205 near Tracy in California. The traffic stopped completely because of an accident ahead. Some people started driving back on the shoulder to get the nearest exit behind us (200 metres). At the same time, some cars wanted to use the same shoulder to get to the next exit that was some 2-3 km ahead

Yeah I noticed it too. Except some really old cars, most are from the 2000's. Really different from the stereotype image many people have of Ukrainians only driving in lada's from the 80's that almost fall apart.

However, considering the daily flow of flatbeds with UA plates and brand new cars heading east in the Netherlands, I'm not that surprised.

I saw a lot of flatbed trucks with new cars on it, heading east. The flatbeds have UA plates, so I guess they importing new cars from the Netherlands into Ukraine.

Gotta love that overtaking; I guess it's not allowed to overtake in the middle? I hope the Euro2012 gets you better roads. Btw (no offence), is traveling in Ukraine by car safe?

Mostly, yes. However, on some undivided roads, drivers may decide to overtake crossing the double lane. If you happen to drive in the opposite lane, you can be killed at no fault of your own
