Avoid Problems with Police in Ukraine

First thing you should remember: at any time when you are out of the place where you stay you need to have a valid passport with you. Ukrainians who you know might advice you otherwise, most of the locals don’t bother to carry their IDs along with them, but you are a foreigner and it is much easier just to keep your passport close than explaining the police why you don’t have any document to prove your identity.

Due to the current laws of Ukraine the police personnel is allowed to check ID of any person who might look or act suspicious (in reality, they can stop any person who they want to stop and you don’t need to do anything funny to be stopped!). It’s very important that you have your passport with you. I was asked several times if a copy of the passport or driving license can be used instead of the original passport. The answer to this is in the “grey zone” it might work sometimes, but the copy of the passport can be forged easily, so the police can refuse it, and the driving license issued by the US authorities doesn’t necessarily replace passport.

You need to try to learn few phrases in Russian, so that you can explain that you are: “American tourist- amerikanski toorist” and that “you don’t speak Russian well – ya ne govoru pa Rooskee!”. Try to make sure that you passport actually stays in your hands when you show it to the police.

In case you didn’t need a visa to enter Ukraine, you can stay in the country for 90 days since the day of you arrival. If you are a citizen of the USA your passport will be stamped on the boarder of Ukraine when you enter its territory, this stamp is the proof of the fact that your stay in Ukraine is legal.

Drinking alcoholic beverages in public is prohibited in Ukraine, this law is also enforced by the police, so never drink beer in the publics parks. You can order and drink alcohol in the establishments located in the same park, but not outside of them. Breaking this rule puts you in a trouble and it doesn’t matter if you have your passport or not.

The same thing with drinking and smoking in the trains, there are fines for that.

Ukraine may sometimes seem to have too many rules and regulations, but in fact visitors of this country very rarely face any problems. I have been working for the Mordinson Ukrainian marriage agency for more than 10 years and we’ve had hundreds of clients coming over and staying in Kharkov and I can say that there were never any serious problems.

My trip to Ukraine and experience with Mordinson agency from Ukraine

Dear Mordinson familyl!!
I'm writing this letter for 2 reasons. First I'd like to thank you and the Mordinson Agency for helping me find a very special lady. I would also like to highly recommend them for anyone who is thinking of finding nice attractive lady to share their life! 

The Mordinson's run an honest and reputable business. It's very easy and inexpensive to start. You should pick at least 5 or 6 ladies to write to. You never know which one you will end up clicking with. For example when I went to Kharkov I had been writing a few women for several weeks . I thought one of them would be "The one " but when I met them and spent some time together I realized there wasn't a connection. There was another lady that I wrote one time just before I left on my trip. She was the one I fell for in love with ! 

The main reason that I chose to use the Mordinson Agency was because I had never traveled outside of the USA. And they offer a Hands on approach. As soon as I landed in Kharkov Michael was there to pick me up and he provided everything I could possibly need. He even accompanied me to the market on several occasion to buy groceries. Then On a slow day he picked me up and took me on a guided tour of the city. 

His approach to the dates was very professional and also made me feel at ease. When providing his translation services on the dates he tries to stay on the sidelines so that you and your date are the center of each others attention. And his translations never miss a beat while he is doing this. 

You should also know that I was very suspicious of everything that goes on in this industry. And when you inject cash into it, that made me even more cautious! But Michael provided everything his website promise and much more. I have many more recommendations on what you might need for your trip and if anyone would like some help with their journey. You can ask Michael Mordinson for my e-mail address! 

Thanks again to Michael and his family. Also thanks to a new friend (Kirk) that helped me when I needed it!
Yana and Tim, the USA. 23 October 2010

Хорошее брачное агентство в Харькове- Хочу Замуж за Иностранца!

 Замуж только по Любви! Агентство знакомств «Мординсон», Харьков
контактные телефоны: 701-35-00; 067-578-2344

Первые организации, которые предлагали свои услуги в области поиска подходящего жениха заграницей появились в Харькове в середине девяностых. Можно сказать, что тогда это был настоящий бум, причины того ажиотажа в принципе не сложно понять- сложная социально экономическая ситуация в стране, полная "чернуха" в жизни, когда люди получали или копейки или вообще потеряли работу, ухудшающаяся криминагенная обстановка и другие факторы делали перспективу замужества и иммиграции в одну из благополучных западных стран просто волшебным шансом на нормальную жизнь. Харьков как один из крупнейших образовательных центров не только Украины но и всего бывшего СССР притягивал тысячи студентов и студенток, а значит недостатка в "золушках", желающих сбросить лохмотья совковой нищеты и очутиться в роскошном дворце и в обьятьях принца, всегда было предостаточно.

За годы прошедшие с того времени очень много поменялось и в нашей стране и на западе тоже. Но как и прежде есть множество девушек, которые не находят свои вторые половинки в Харькове, а с другой стороны появилось гораздо больше молодых, успешных и симпатичных мужчин из США, Европы, Австралии и тд. которые всё чаще обращают свой взгляд на Восток- на Родину женской мудрости и красоты!

Если Вы чувствуете, что хотите попробовать найти себе жениха заграницей, то есть несколько способов это сделать! Во-первых существуют бесплатные сайты on-line знакомств, где вы можете разместить свои фото и профиль, и к Вам начнут приходить пачками сообщения от восторженых Ромео со всего мира. Плюс этогом метода- возможность попрактиковаться в своем знании иностранных языков, пожалуй других плюсов нет. Очень часто на таких сайтах регистрируются мужчины, которых еще называют "key board Romeo" тоесть "клавиатурный Ромео", это значит что такой человек просто хочет переписываться, но не имеет никаких серьезных намерений относительно брака либо даже приезда в Украину.

Второй вариант, и мы считаем более реалистичный и эффективный- это регистрация в реальном брачном агентстве.

Все услуги брачного агентства Mordinson совершенно бесплатны для девушек. Что мы предлагаем? Сделать фото в нашей студии, где вам помогут и с макияжем и укладкой (тоже бесплатно), разместить Ваши фото у нас на сайте и знакомится с хорошими мужчинами со всего мира (восновном США и Западная Европа).

Мы не бесплатное агентство для мужчин и к нам обращаются исключительно те мужчины, которые готовы к созданию семьи в ближайшем будущем.

Если Вы действительно серьезно хотите замуж и Вы не против жить в другой стране, приходите к нам в оффис! Телефон для консультаций:
70 11 555 и 067 578 2344

С Уважением,
МБА Mordinson
