Polski Fiat 126 doesn't fit in Ukraine. You could use some car models from russian part of ProMods, since it have some Soviet cars IIRC (Blue Moskvitch for example) or some models from jazzycat traffic packs (changeable, users would need to have that pack).
I haven't been able to find Russian car models yet, but perhaps I've been overlooking them. Kovel is not far from the Polish border though, so would a Polish car really be out of place?

Also one thing I have noticed is that Ukraine have looooots of yellow-blue painted things from crash barriers , fences, railway bridge metall parts up to some buildings like hotels or autoservices. One problem that makes things a bit diffirent is that you have to use all (or most) of letters on those buildings and billboards in Ukrainian, so it would be more complicated than just copy-paste some models from the RusMap.
Do you have some pictures of yellow-blue painted things? I could use them as inspiration. If Ukrainians are really that proud of their yellow-blue colors, I could add some more, or even do simple things like picking a blue railing instead of a red one.

Do they use a lot of flags?

What new Ukrainian cities will be in 2.3?
We're currently only developing Kovel. Can't promise it'll make it to 2.3. But you should not count on any more cities. It's either Kovel or nothing in 2.3

are you planning on connecting Russia to Moldova or Romania in the near future? Thank you.
Considering Ukraine is HUUUUUUGE, a connection like that will be a long-term plan and will not be completed in near future.

Personally the most logical step now is to connect Kovel to Uzzhorod and Mukacheve, via Lviv.

One more bridge.

Although they are not used everywere it's still not a big deal to find one of them. ;)
P.S. Not sure about flags, but sometimes they used at gas stations, some road police posts, or in other randome places (like the one in the links).
P.P.S. Pay attention to those white painted tree bottoms as well, it's a common practice in former SU (it's believed this can protect trees from insects).

Thanks for the response. One more thing if its ok: are you planning on developing more Ukranian cities further east to Kiev or is it just Kovel for now?

It's always been ProMods long-term plan to cover all of Europe*, so of course more Ukrainian cities are planned, but that's a long term plan. Considering it took me long enough to make Kovel, don't count on anything on the short term.
*Conflicted zones are an exception, and is a whole different discussion.

Transnistria can have an Easter egg: Soviet Moldova anthem right at the border.

Sure, piss off every Moldovan and possibly Romanian person, that's what ProMods wants to do... :roll:

Before someone jumps on this "conflicted zones: will they won' they" discussion that has been settled so many times already I'll try to steer it back on topic... So if there's only Kovel being developed right now that means it won't have a direct connection with the already existing south-western portion yet, right?

Transnistria is the part of Moldova that thinks USSR still exists. You can look at their flag. And Moldova actually wants seccession of them (along with Gagauzia), UN is one saying it is not acceptable.
