After a huge wave of car thefts, Ukraine has returned to the level of the early 2010s.
3 September 2021
Over the first half of the year, Ukraine has recorded 1,475 car thefts. It is the best result in the past five years.
In 2014, car thefts spiked with the number almost doubling to 12,600 thefts. This record-high level lasted through 2016.
|Number of car thefts||6,794||12,644||11,463||12,205||9,018||6,642||5,441||4,522||1,475|
In 2017, when the overall crime stats started trending down in Ukraine, the number of car thefts started decreasing, too. In 2020, there were as little as 4,522. With the current dynamics, this year’s figure is likely to be even lower.
|Number of criminal offenses||514,000||476,000||490,000||562,000||490,000||456,000||418,000||335,000|
