Kherson is a little unstable due to Crimea
Now the situation in Ukraine in general is unstable. Kherson is close to Crimea and supplies water and electricity to Crimea. I am advised by friends in Kherson that it is not safe to visit. Cars are stopped on the highway and things are unpredictable and lawless. I hope the situation in the country stabilises soon, but it does not look likely.
Just be careful!
* Don't go anywhere in Kherson alone when it's dark;
* A lot of streets in Kherson don't have street lights at night;
* Don't drink water straight from the tap(only boiled);
* A lot of areas in Kherson have got their water (cold) by hours;
* Watch your pockets and luggage;
* If I were you I wouldn't trust marriage agencies to much..... (maybe some of them are ok, but I am not an expert in it:-))

This young woman is one swindler !!
I made the acquaintance of Antonina thanks to a site of meeting on Internet. She presented herself like divorced person, doctor pediatrician in a medical center. 34 years, a daughter, Helen, of 5 years old. She lives in Kherson. We corresponded, and in the month of July, I left to Kiev, where I met it.
After my return in France we continued to write us, with an objective : his arrival in France. She asked me quickly for money because she was not able to, only to provide to all. I had reserved the wholes of the plane tickets. or 6 days before my departure, she announced me that she came back with his daughter's father. When I asked him how she intended to adjust his financial debt, she told me that she had already spent quite.

Don't drink the Water!
Don't even use the tap water to brush your teeth. There are microscopic "critters" that are bad for you! Even when you boil the tap water you get a water heavy in minerals. Buy bottled water, you'll be happier. Now you know why everyone drinks hot tea, even in the summer!
Many womens are singles in Ukrainia, and single's womens could be take some problems, on the streets, tonight.
