I'm an EU citizen and I'm considering longer travel through the Ukraine. Because I'm concerned about security issues, I don't want to have all my money with me. Opening a bank account in Ukraine would be the preferred solution, because I've experienced problems with Ukrainian ATMs when using my VISA card (I wasn't able to withdraw money).

A Ukrainian bank account would be also ideal for paying for tickets for trains/buses and reservations in hostels through Internet.

Is it possible for a foreigner to open a bank account in Ukraine? If so, what steps are necessary? For example, do I need to register my domicile address in Ukraine?
