The World's Worst Places to Work

No. 19 Kiev, Ukraine

Overall Grade: Medium Risk Location
Problems: Pollution, Disease & Sanitation, Medical Facilities,
Infrastructure, Crime, Communications

The capital of Ukraine has the dubious honor of being the worst-performing
European city on ORC's list. The medical facilities are inadequate, says ORC.
"Also of concern are racially motivated attacks against non-Caucasians, and crime in general."


Про margin call

В дом олигарха на рублевке заходит домработница. Видит - мебели нет, на стенах пустые квадраты от картин,
дорогой паркет содран а посередине гостиной на полу сидит мужик и допивает хозяйский коньяк. Домработница в шоке.
- Ты это, шефу скажи - Коля Маржин заходил. Ну че ты орешь? Ухожу я, ухожу - соседи заждались...
