Steve, you are indeed staying in the same apartment I was on my penultimate trip to Kharkiv. Good memories, but it certainly looks like you guys are having a livelier time! Enjoy the remainder of your trip, seems like everything has gone to plan and beyond.

Hi guys,

This is my last post from Ukraine.  I am at KBP, waiting to board my flight.

The K1 visa application arrived at the Kyiv embassy on Jan 10.  T finished her medical and will get the police report this week.  Interview is Jan 28.

I'm a bit sad now, actually.  T' sister gave me a nice farewell gift - a card signed by her family with a touching message and a framed photo collage with pictures from the past two months.  Due to the K1 process I will not see them again for a year, maybe longer.

It's like a chapter has closed.  A new one will not start until next month, when T arrives to the states (knock on wood).  Meanwhile I'll be busy at work - an engineering project that needs to be finished by the end of the month.

I loved my time here, even the roads past Dnipro toward Mariupol and the checkpoints.  Well, perhaps not the one where we had to wait in a cold hut for 30 minutes while they ran our background checks.

Anyhoo, here's to 2019!  Good luck and Udachi!

Ships in the night.  I should have shook your hand I was on the 2pm British airways flight out of borispol.

Hi guys,

I hope you mean -for now !

Steve -- your posts show empathy and interest --not just in your lady- but Ukraine itself. You post with respect.
Not surprising really-- as your posts across a lot of threads show you are are a sensible guy -- and need to be read by others new or inexperienced .  :clapping:
SLAVA UKRAYINI  ! HEROYAM SLAVA!!!!
Слава Украине! Слава героям слава!Слава Україні! Слава героям!
 translated as: Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes!!!  is a Ukrainian greeting slogan being used now all over Ukraine to signify support for a free independent Ukraine

DONíT PANIC!

I would wait awhile and then in your chats or emails talk about YOUR job and then ask in return how HER job is going, or if the date is near a Ukrainian national holiday ask if her company gives the day off, and use as a segway to ask more questions about her job...
you could always ask about her education, and then ask about after graduation...

it could be something simple like she was just laid off, or she hasnít been paid in such a long while that she just quit, etc or just didnít feel like talking about something that may be a negative subject

take a deep breath...
you're just beginning to learn how "weird" Russian women can be, don't worry, you'll learn MUCH MORE as time goes on!!!!!

вы думаете, что любой из этих людей, даже российских, подозревает, что я русский?
