Will return to this, I know two of the sources mentioned.

I suspect most of the article is filler and BS. Perhaps the price of sex dates in Kiev/Odessa are lower that elsewhere in Europe. But I have no knowledge.

My guess the number of 'sex-tourists' to Ukraine is about the same as elsewhere in Europe. Perhaps they are less pricey though.

The article makes so many assumptions, mostly incorrect. It is as bad as anything in the Western Press or what Russian Insider publishes.






I will have to bow to your vast experience in sex tourism. Maybe you can give some examples of these assumptions?

Will return to this, but my knowledge is not the skin trade. Only my expierence and those who are in Kiev/Milan/L'viv/Odessa and mentioned in the article.

NB: Tom Cat qouted my first version, which I modified above.
