Dude, I think this is a scam.
Look:
Has anyone ever had experience with these sites and are they a scam as I suspect they are?
I know you guys will think I am crazy but all of the risk is on her. She is paying her own way down here. All I have to do is pick her up at the airport.
Believe me, I have wanted this so badly for such a long time.
Just to keep everyone up to speed, my unkrainian girlfriend is coming in two weeks. She was finally released from her job and allowed to go to america. She needs help from me though in telling her which airport to go to and which airline. I figure any airline is best if you buy two weeks in advance.
She never came.
Finally, I will be arriving in kiev, Ukraine on the 14th of December. My passport should be here shortly. I have a changeover in brussels belgium.
They know you're desperate. All of the risk and cost was going to be on her, but now you're taking all the risk and cost on yourself.
You'll probably get robbed by them when you get there.
Just don't go.
Don't let your desperation cloud your judgement. You know you shouldn't be going to the Ukraine to pick up a girlfriend, come on!

Well most strippers in my country are from Ukraine, sometimes i think that's their main export.
All four of my grandparents came from Ukraine and none of them were strippers. Mind you, none of them were Ukrainian either.

See you prove my point
So i guess your Russian then
It was intended as a joke, while factually true that lots of strippers here are Ukrainian im sure people form Ukraine come to do other stuff too they are probably just not that noticeable.
But at the same time we had a flood of Slovaks a while back basically taking every job that we dint want. Just no strippers.

Hitler sleeps with the fishes
Hitlers carcass was unceremonioulsy incinerated by the Russians and dumped in the drink. No grave to spin in.

Yes!
I honestly don't know why you needed to say what you did, but hopefully he is smart enough to listen to you.
Seriously. There is a woman/man for everyone. Just be a good person and put yourself out into the world where you can be seen and heard.

Mein Vater Groeltern zog nach Russland zu bauen Windmhlen und mein Grovater wurde dort geboren.
Sollte das doch nicht so geschrieben werden?: "Meines Vaters Groeltern zog nach Russland um Windmhlen zu bauen und mein Grovater waren dort geboren." Tja, seit sechsunddreiig Jahre studiere ich kein Deutsch. Und seitdem haben sie auch die Sprache verndert.
(Shouldn't that have been written as: ... . Oh well, it's been 36 years since I've studied German. Plus they've changed the language since then.)
There aren't many Germans left in Ukraine because they all moved to Canada.
Not just to Canada. A lot of them also settled in eastern North Dakota, where I was stationed, where they're known as the "Germans from Russia". The history that I was given there was that Russia needed settlers to immigrate and develop the Ukraine, so they offered land to German farmers who were too many and didn't have enough land. The best part of the deal was that the Germans wouldn't be treated like Russians. Serfdom existed in Russia until 1861 when the serfs were finally freed. I think it was under Catherine the Great that the Germans settled the Ukraine. They thrived until a later Tzar decided to start treating them like Russians, which is when they decided to emigrate to the plains of North America.
Also, talking about Ukrainian women, the best known one in the US is Mila Kunis.

I hope he at least informs his family and friends here in the states exactly who he is meeting with and exactly where they will be meeting.
If they have any reason whatsoever that they have to hide any information about who they are or where they will be meeting, then he needs to make sure that he avoids the whole thing.
There is a woman/man for everyone.
I don't think there's just one. I think that lots of different people could make it together if they both are committed and try.

It gets worse. My grandmother was a Mennonite (pacifist) and my grandfather was from East Prussia - and served in the German Army (before WWI). Their families lived a few miles apart in Ukraine, came to Canada separately and settled a few miles apart before they finally got together.
So you never know. I hope it turns out as well for yenmor.

I wondered about that myself but who am I to question Google? I never really learned German. My parents used to speak it to the older generation and when they didn't want us to know what they were saying (but we still caught on to a lot of it).

My grandparents actually lived in North Dakota for a while too. A lot of people kinda slid back and forth. The border wasn't quite as firm a hundred years ago as it is now.
