replied to the thread Wanted, a Russian language tutor to Skype
on the Ukraine forum:
Hi, my plan is to move to a Russian speaking country by the end of this year. This place (Unmerica) hasn't felt like my home for decades and now I have finally decided to do something about it. But I only speak a few words in Russian. I have tried to learn the language on my own and it just doesn't stick in my head. My brain doesn't seem to learn that way. I need a tutor who is a native Russian speaker. A female is preferred because over the years I've found that my brain absorbs information better from a female voice than male. Perhaps it's because my brothers, sisters and I were raised by a single mother (8 of us) I don't know.
Just a little personal info about me so you know I'm serious, determined, and to get to know a little about me. I love to work in my garden, take long walks, hiking, biking and swimming. I would love to go on vacation and see the many wonderful places I've only read about and learn to ski, waterski, snorkling, maybe even scuba diving among others.
Now you know a little about me, feel free to send me a private message with your email or skype or reply here.

My name is Ken. I'm English and live in Kharkov, Ukraine with my Ukrainian wife.
I work here as an English Teacher.
My wife is fluent in both English, (she lived in England for 10 years), and in Russian (native speaker).
She provides online Russian lessons to any English-speaker.
If you are interested, please get back to me and we can set up an initial Skype call. email@example.com
Good for you Yulia. Your message came to my e-mail, near Chicago. I regret that I am not a Russian speaker, as my wife has been here for 20 yrs now, and I remember a lot of her introductions before we got together were listening to BBC, which has its own different handful of words. I only know a few words of Russian, Polish, and Spanish, but only to order at a deli or bar. Rules are "frustrating", I learned basics doing my daughter's english not long ago. We learn so many words in primary grades, but rarely use them in our lives unless one is a journalist.
To my lamment,I am not content having been born here and living 62 yrs near Chicago, I should have gotten out long ago. Every week, the news is 20-25 or so blacks(chorny) shoot each other in the poorer area of Chicago. If they can't play sports, the outlook is poor.No one cares really, as we are not living there: any big city in the U.S. is the same. My wife is VERY UPSET living here,and seeing the refugee problems in Europe on t.v. are caused by the U.S. military blowing up the Arabs, and they try to escape their world.
The U.S. leases over 700 bases around the world, which is a large part of the $600 billion military budget, "that is a hell of a lot of money to control the world", and now the E.U.is getting hurt badly by these refugees.Washington will do anything! We here,"get the finger" if I may put it, with social spending here for schools, and help for people, and taxes going up.
I do have a negative outlook, I am just an ordinary person, a retired truck driver, NOT a professor, the writer of Harry Potter, or a celebrity. I sweat and froze for my pension. I have been told "no place is without problems", that is true. Excuse my bias, not being a patriot of the U.S., the country IS good, the political ruling class has not been for maybe 40 years. Big business rules, not democracy since Jimmy Carter at least.They are giving up interest in Ukraine pretty much, letting the oligarchs fight it out now painting a "big bad Russia image." How can one live in Kiev on $400/ month like many in Poland, I have been told by Polish here? You need $3k.
Maybe I m wrong about Kiev wages. I know IT makes better money.
God help you.

replied to the thread Jews have to flee Odessa
on the Ukraine forum:
"Show me a resident of Odessa who is not a Jew", that's a saying very popular in Odessa, a famous Ukrainian city on the Black Sea. During WWII about 60,000 Odessians (mostly Jews) were massacred by Romanian and German occupants. Now, when there are Ukrainian nationalists setting the tone in the country something of the sort may again occur. Nationalistic ruling elements in Kiev make no secret they're actually fans of Hitler
The latest worrying news is that former Georgian president Saakashvili (wanted in his country on criminal charges and known for his cruelty and cynical ways) has been designated the local governor. Mind he's a tame bird of nationalistic elements in Kiev set to transform Odessa in "a purely Ukrainian city".
My Jewish relatives living in Odessa say they are set to move to some other country to enjoy safety.... well until it's too late and they haven't started those awful pogroms or sort of it.

Odessa is realy nice city. I was there 1 month ago, with my friend, we rented car from http://naniko.com/car-rental-ukraine-odessa/ They have good prices and high service.
Don't forget Kiev is directed from Washington,(McCain ), Porky would never have the nerve to do anything without Washington, and they don't want Ukraine anymore.
The U.S. is drowning in troubles starting with the Arabs, picking on Russia, and now China. If the Jews would dress like normal people without beards and such, some women dress like ISIS here, and no one cares if they blow up a school. good luck
Apartment - 66.40sqm in the centre of Kiev. The prestigious "Diplomat hall." Half constructed so ready for you to put your stamp on it. $190,000 - A very good price for this great located apartment.
I just ask"What are people doing to bring in money, when the country is broke ?" I saw "advisory, and some EUAM listings." WHO and and WHAT is anyone advising ! A bartender can advise.
Sorry to here your situation Sir2 You, I and millions of ordinary people are "blind" to the dirty things the U.S. gov. does to us. Intl.. Living mag and Stansberry open our eyes some what to ways to "get out of the U.S.".My wife as I have stated, would rather move to Yalta. At one time, we were seriously looking @ Canada, where one can feel good to live. Good luck there!
