  • Kherson is a little unstable due to Crimea

    by ASW48 Written May 28, 2014

    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.

    * 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:-))

    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.

    After some days, because I let him one delays, I carried complaint by the FBI, and I informed Western Union... I didn't have a news anymore since. For me it is a forgotten history, but that learned me the prudence.

    Don't drink the Water!

    by Caius Updated Oct 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    I think I have been cheated by a girl in Kherson. Met her in June 2013 thru dating site and it became a love. When ever I asked her to meet she said too busy with her job and when she have time will let me know. After 13 months of emails, she still have no time to meet me for her future. Lately by accident found she is in 5 different sites, and in 1 site she has 44 pictures, quite provocative ones. On confronting her she first said what is so significance of being in so many sites. Asked me for English lessons, paid for it then all most cried or begged for an expencive perfume for her mother on "Mothers day", which I did. Now when ever from morning to Midnight I see her on line in one or another dating sites, chatting and some times with cam. Be careful with girls from Kherson !!! Good that I did not travelled there after spending thousands of dollars on chat and gifts. What do you think ? Is she a cheat or innocent girl ? She had been on sites since 2010.

      You have been well and truly used, I'm afraid. And this has nothing to do with women in Kherson or anywhere else in Ukraine: it can (and does) happen with women...and men...from anywhere. It's never a good idea to send money to people you only know through the internet. I'm sorry you have been tricked in this way but you can take comfort from the fact that you are certainly not the first.
