Ukraine may have had a troubled past. The country had some conflicts in the recent past. However, that changed and they are open for business. You may be interested in doing business with the Ukrainians, and the secret of a successful business trip is to learn some things related to their culture and traditions. After all, you cannot engage in business with some people you do not know anything about. It is essential for you to understand their business mentality. Plus, you will be highly appreciated if you take an interest in Ukraine’s history and culture. It shows dedication to a successful business plan. That is why the information you will read below will be most useful. The first thing that you need to bear in mind is that Ukrainians do not like their country to be referred to as ‘the Ukraine.’ It may make no difference to you, but when you use that formula, you are giving the impression that you refer to the country as a part of something else. In this case, we are talking about the former URSS or Russia. It is true that the nations shared some history, some of it quite recent actually, but they are not one and the same. By using the expression above, you somehow chip Ukraine’s independence. You may not think that far, but the Ukrainians will feel a little embarrassed, which is why it is essential for you to refrain from using the mentioned formula. When it comes it comes to communication, English is suitable only in certain areas in Ukraine. It also depends on the industry. For example, if you are looking to do business in agriculture or heavy industry, you will need to hire an interpreter. The knowledge of English also depends on the generation you interact with. As you can imagine, younger generations will know how to speak English, as opposed to older generations who stick to their own language. The official language in Ukraine is Ukrainian, although in many regions in the East Russian is still widely spread. Crimea is one of those regions. It may come as a surprise, but many Ukrainians speak German because Ukraine has business ties with Germany. You are not required to learn either of those languages if you think it is too hard or your time there is so short that it is just not worth it. However, if you want to make a good impression, it is recommended that you learn some common expressions. Unlike many cultures, Ukrainians do not like to have an introductory meeting when they get to know you. They do not take things that personal. Instead, you may be required to be to the point even from the first meetings, so make sure that you are prepared. You will not be asked personal questions, and the delegation present at the meeting is more interested in what you have to offer than who you are and what you do for the company you are working at. All important matters are to be discussed face-to-face, while phone calls and e-mails are reserved for little things. Greetings are quite straightforward. In Ukraine, the typical handshake is used, but there are some rules about it. For one, you should never shake the hand of someone over a threshold. Gifts are not necessary, but if you are invited to someone’s home for dinner, it is customary to bring flowers. Just make sure that you bring flowers in odd numbers. Ukrainians associate even numbers with funerals and mourning. During the negotiations, you may get bored a little bit because Ukrainians take their time to reach a conclusion. However, one thing that you should know is that they consider any small piece of information as confidential. This may seem odd to you. For example, if you are calling the PR department of a particular company, getting the phone number of an employee is almost impossible. Getting the number of a director is straight up impossible. You can get that info only when you have a meeting face to face. At the same time, keep in mind that all organizations in Ukraine will draw a Memo of Understanding. Do not be concerned because they do not compel you to sign or contract, and there are no legal obligations on your part, but they are common documents, and the Ukrainian will not overlook that step. Needless to say, the business attire is just as in any other country. Men must wear suits and ties. The weather is rarely hot in Ukraine, except in the summer, but if you are feeling too hot, you can remove your jacket. But that is about it. If you are a woman, you need to dress conservatively as well. Dress and skirts are acceptable, but they need to reach the knees. Your attire should also cover your shoulders and show no cleavage. Moreover, never wear dresses or skirts that are too tight. On the negative side of things, which exist in every country, not only Ukraine, you should probably know that Ukraine ranks 144th on transparency (out of 176 states,) and they have issues with corruption. Even if your contacts tell you that the officials need to be bribed, we recommend that you do not. Corruption is a real issue in that part of the world, but you do not want to have anything to do with it. It is better to lose a contract than to lose your integrity. Not to mention all the trouble you can find yourself in if you get caught. Overall, Ukraine is not a complicated nation to understand. Their culture is fascinating and the people are hospitable, and they will show you every chance they get, but you need to take everything with a grain of salt. We all know how things work in the business world. As long as you maintain a small degree of scepticism, your business trip should be successful.
