This article is about how to try to find person in Ukraine yourselves using open source data.
First of all you should correctly identify the person you want to check. Common identifiers are name and surname, but it is obvious many combinations of name and surname will have too many matches and you won’t be able to identify person correctly. Here you should know that in Ukraine most people also have patronymic name. There are still cases when names, surnames and patronymic names are same for different people, but still it narrows down the search.
The other important identifier is date of birth. Nowadays, it is more and more rare occasion when people indicate their date of birth somewhere online, but still it may be of good use in your searches.
There is no need to say it is better to know how person’s name is written in local script. Unfortunately, if you do not have those identifiers, don’t know Ukrainian and have no Cyrillic on your keypad, it would be quite a challenge to surf Ukrainian language sources of information and find person in Ukraine.
