Because there’s a girl on your site that I really like but she’s 22, divorced and no kids. It really doesn’t bother me at all but I’d love to hear your take on it. What is like to date a young lady who was recently divorced?

What is the current situation in Donetsk and Luhansk? I noticed that there are salary figures for these cities. Are they in Russian controlled areas? I was under the impression that much of the population had moved out?

James,
Officially, Russia denies involvement in Donetsk and Luhansk. But there are coal mines in Donetsk region, this is why average wages there are higher. You can check English-speaking sources what parts of these regions are under Ukraine’s control and which are governed by separatist groups.

Hi Elena,
Just joined today, wonderful job. :))

My question involves Ukraine locals leaving their country. Is it difficult for them to leave? My understanding is that they just require a tourist visa and passport. Are they required to show a “tourist cheque”, or proof that they have sufficient funds to visit abroad? Any other financial costs to leave country. Other documents? I hope to soon meet a lady and bring her to visit Canada.

Thank you for your time, Elena.
Rudy 🙂

Rudy,
Thanks for the kind words.
It’s easy for Ukrainian women to leave the country: There is no requirement from Ukraine’s authorities to have any special exit documents, except passport. It is up to the person to ensure they have required documents for the border control in the country they enter (visa, funds to support themselves, etc.). Regarding moving to Canada, check the website of the Department of Immigration.
