Online dating and romance scams from the Ukraine and Russia continue to increase. Each year, more and more victims file reports with their local law enforcement agencies in Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States. To their credit, Moscow and Kiev police have made some arrests, although the fraud is still growing. Controlling the crime relies more on educating consumers and access to international background checks.
Most scammers and criminals of fraud seek out their victims on websites that cater to meeting Ukrainian or Russian women, but no website is safe. Many Ukraine and Russia scammers now use foreign match making websites in the U.K., Canada and Australia, such as Match.com. Many scams are actually operated by men using beautiful photographs of Russia and Ukraine women.
Obviously not all the women in Russia and the Ukraine are involved in scams. Many are indeed honest and beautiful women, who are seeking an honest relationship with a foreigner. However, distinguishing between the honest women and the scammers is increasingly difficult. Elements typically used to achieve the fraud or scam include assistance for education, help with travel costs, visas, or a medical emergency. The money is almost always requested via a wire transfer, such as Western Union.
For those pursuing a relationship with someone from the Ukraine or Russia, a professional background check is strongly advised. Private investigation companies are now present in Kiev, Moscow and St. Petersburg. Wymoo® now has field investigators in these cities and offers a free private investigation quote via its website.

Foreign Bride Questions:
Are Ukrainian women easy to date?
I’m looking forward to visit Kharkov-Ukraine for studying Russian language; I hope to know a sweet lady for serious long-term relationship leading to marriage if possible. So, I want more information about those people! Are they fraudulent? (Sorry, I don’t mean any insult for Ukrainian people). I am serious with no intension to waste my money on brothels or hookers!
I agree with Joana. Most of the comments made here are generalizing with no true basis for such comments.
We should keep in mind that in Ukraine, women are told that all American men want a Ukrainian/Russian woman to bring them to the US and sell as a prostitute. Does it happen? Yes. Is it true of all American’s? Absolutely not.
Sure, there are scammers there (like here), and there are girls looking for a free visa to the US. However, because of the “Mail Order Bride/easy visa” days of the early 1990’s, the US has tightened down very hard on visa’s for single or recently married women coming here. The process is so difficult and drawn out, you will know for sure if you love her and she loves you, long before you get a visa.
As a whole, Ukrainian women tend to hold 1950’s moral and family values, are hard working, intelligent, beautiful/sexy and very serious about relationships. They do tend to “fall in love” faster than American women, and are quick to decide if a man is or is not suitable as a mate. It is just a cultural thing (I won’t go into the reasons here). In general, material things are not what attracts a good Ukrainian woman – it is attention and love (like for most women).
You will find women who are “easy to date” in Kharkiv, and you will find those that despise Americans. Good luck in your search. Should you find “the right woman” in Kharkiv, she will love you to death.
International Marriages Are Magical, Just Know The Challenges
More and more people are meeting their soul mates in countries other than their own with the help of the internet. The beautiful women of Russia and Ukraine are desirable marriage partners for thousands of men each year. While the online courting process is easy and enjoyable, once a couple pairs up and decides to wed, there are many aspects of an international marriage that they need to understand and prepare for.
When men are chatting with Russian ladies online, they have the advantage of experienced translators helping to facilitate their communication. Even when he travels to her country, translators are available to make their meeting more comfortable. Once she moves to his hometown, the language barrier may be the biggest obstacle to overcome. A gentleman who is serious about sharing his life with a Russian or Ukrainian woman should try to learn some of her language, and she should strive to learn his. Helping to teach each other can be a bonding experience and actually quite fun.
Life in Russia and Ukraine is vastly different from other countries in many ways, especially financially. If a Russian woman is lucky enough to have a job, she probably only makes a fraction of the pay that one would expect somewhere else. While her income may be sufficient for the small expenses she has, learning to manage finances abroad will be a drastic change. Mortgages, car payments, and credit cards are largely unknown to the average Russian bride so men may need to educate his fiancé about these topics.
Every community has various traditions, with some more deeply rooted than others. Women from the countries of the Former Soviet Union are often admired for their strong cultural values which won’t be easy to forget about after they move away. Couples will naturally discuss their cultural differences, but they should also determine how they will meld them together in their new life. Men could help prepare by seeking out Russian or Ukrainian community centers, churches, cultural clubs, and restaurants in their own hometowns so that their new brides will have some familiarity.
Since international online dating is still seen as strange and taboo in many countries, some Russian ladies are worried that their own families or friends may not accept their choice of finding love this way. Men may share similar feelings also since Russian dating still holds the negative stigma of “mail order brides”. This is one reason why members of international dating sites need to be courageous in their quest and confident that the end result will be worth the possible ridicule of the process. A couple should be open and honest with their families and introduce each other as soon as they become serious in the relationship to help everyone adjust to this new life.
Any marriage requires hard work and dedication to be successful, but international marriages call for even more commitment, compromise, and a plethora of patience. While some people may think these hurdles are too high for this union to succeed, statistics show that they actually last longer than traditional marriages. One reason may be that so much effort and determination is put forth to find that perfect partner that once they are joined together, there is no obstacle large enough that could keep them apart.
Ivano-Frankivsk lies in the Precarpathian plain where fast waters of the Nadvirnianska Bystrytsia and Solotvynska Bystrytsia join together. Ivano-Frankivsk is the regional center and one of the largest economic and cultural centers in the west of Ukraine.
The first mention of the city named Stanyslaviv refers to 1662 when the city received a Magdeburg right. The city was founded as a fortress to protect people from Crimean Tatars’ raids and a stronghold of the Pototskyis – Polish landlords on Halych lands. Many times the fortress was besieged by Turkish and Russian troops.
Stanyslaviv was originated from the Market square and City Hall, which can be seen today having been modified. The Renaissance architectural ideas of “the ideal city” were reflected in the construction that followed. These ideas were used for planning a middle part of the city, its streets and churches. Because of the originality the of architecture sometimes our city is called “small Lvov”.
In 18-19 centuries the city was a big trading and manufacturing center of Poland and from 1772 – of Austria (since 1867 – of Austro-Hungarian Empire). Except Ukrainians, a certain contribution in development of crafts and culture was made by Polish, Jews and Armenians whose national communities were quite numerous.
In 1848 the revolution woke public life. In Stanislav there was created “Rus Rada” (alongside with Polish). They organized a squadron of National Guards and started printing the first newspaper. Ukrainian deputies were elected to the newly established Parliament.
The second half of the 19th century is marked by fast development of industrial relations and creating enterprises. The railway built in 1866 made some impact, too. At that time the locomotive repair factory, distillery, leather plant “Plai” were established.
In 1884 a prominent public character and writer N. Kobrynska conducted constituent assembly of the “Rus Woman Society” (later called “Ukrainian Woman Society”). This initiated the organized woman movement in Ukraine.
During the World War in 1915-1916 there were cruel battles over the city. Part of historic buildings was destroyed and then restored in new architectural forms.
In 1918 after break-up of Austro-Hungarian Empire there was created the West Ukrainian People’s Republic.
Stanyslaviv was the capital of the Republic in January-May 1919. Such prominent public figures as M. Hrushevskyi, V. Vynnychenko, S. Petliura, Y. Konovalets used to come here at that time.
During the World War II the city was occupied by fascist troops for three years (1941-1944). The underground representatives of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists – Ukrainian Insurgent Army were in charge of the struggle with occupants. The hearts of people are still aching when they recall the public execution of 27 patriots in the center of the city in November 1943. In Stanyslaviv and its suburbs fascists killed more than 100 thousand peaceful people in total the city in November 1943. In Stanyslaviv and its suburbs fascists killed more than 100 thousand peaceful people in total.
In 1962 the city celebrated its 300-anniversary. It was renamed after a famous writer and public

RETURN TO THE SEXIEST CITY ON EARTH
I took an overnight train out of Odessa and ended up staying up way
too late drinking vodka with a local named Sergei. He was a native Russian who was more then a little whack after a tour of duty in Chechnya and a recent breakup with his Ukrainian girlfriend. The more we drank the the more I worried about falling asleep next to the dude.
I woke up in Kiev very hungover and looking around for Lena who had greed to meet me at the train station. She was nowhere to be found so Sergei suggested we go with his friend Sasha to get some breakfast. We rode the metro to a dodgy looking and completely foreign restaurant on the edge of town with a menu written entirely in the Ukrainian language. They ordered me red borsch and a beer.
It was 8am and I was still drunk from last nights vodka fest, but Sergei showed no signs of the previous night’s debauchery. I was really hoping for a Denny’s Grand Slam and a bottomless cup of coffee, but instead was stuck drinking Ukrainian lager and soaking my coarse black bread with spicy red broth. I kept checking my phone for some sign from Lena but there was nothing.
Around 9am I agreed to go to Sergei’s friend’s for a barbeque. After a sketchy cab ride to the edge of Kiev, we got to Sasha’s place. It was time to get the grill going and meet everyone. There was Andrei and a couple of nice young deyvotchkas working in the kitchen and all were beyond friendly to their exhausted and hungover guest from Hollywood. I sat down to eat around 10 and another bottle of vodka came out. By 11am I was shit canned and my hosts showed no sign of slowing down. At noon I pretended I had heard from Lena and asked them to call me a cab to meet her.
The cab took me to the hotel Lybid, where I proceeded to pass out for several hours. I awoke from a text from Lena on my Iphone. “I’m so sorry! I was sleeping! I will meet you in a taxi at your hotel at 9pm! Where are you staying?”
At last, I had a date, some rest and reason to throw on my glad
rags. Lena had stood me up at the train station, but I was hoping she’d make up for it by taking me out for a big night on the town in Kiev. This is why I had come here and I was ready for anything and everything.
