Did you know L'viv is the birthplace of L. Ritter von Sacher-Masoch.

Guess what he is famous for.

Its Natasha a young beauty waiting to be whisked away..



I suspect Natasha is in L'viv (Lvov), it was a while back that it was part of Russia.

She's at the NW corner of Rynok Square.  Possibly 36 Rynok Square.

The cafe behind her, in the upper right in the photo, is a great place for breakfast.   Centaur.

A guess the image depicted is of an older internal "Passport". International passport look very different from about 15 years ago.

They usually use the internal passport as it easier to make a fake one up, paste in a new photo and your nearly done!!

Remember NO women in Ukraine have international passports .. its why they need $200 via Western Union..

We have ZERO fakes FULL STOP..

So do I, but that's not the point is it?

IF you read  - contextually - Steveboy's 'analogy' was comparing ladies with western email addresses being as likely as western guys with mail,ru ones ... thanks for demonstrating my point - in that it is not 'rare' ( 5 percent )
Russia doesn't have form for making stuff like this up.
He really did say that

You think 5% of westerners have a mail.ru? Try a fraction of a fraction of 1%. So yes, its rare. Similar to average women in Russia having a western email provider. Bloody miniscule.

You really are the class clown.
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'? 
Yes, he said that.........

[Trolling removed]

Once again ..Steveboy suggested having a 'western' ( Google / Microsoft,etc., ) email was probably a scammer .... Do you agree with that ?

Who owns Yandex ?  The Dutch ... 

So .... a HECK of a lot of RU folk have 'western' email addresses

Why do you want to make a stupid point over this e mail thing... Im telling you 100% and with nearly 10 years experience dealing with scammers from the FSU that nearly 99.5 % of women  particularly young pretty women , who use hotmail/outlook/live or Yahoo are scammers or fakes..

Next time your in St Petersburg pop round and I can will show you the stats.. there is nothing to argue about!!

I have a mail.ru account since about 1999. In all those years I have never had an email from a non FSU native person.

Last time I looked the English language interface had been closed down making it almost certain that non-Russian speakers would not use it. Perhaps that's changed but to claim that 5% of men in Western Europe and North America have a mail.ru account is simply risible.
