Because of the lack of available men in their own country, thousands of Russian and Ukrainian women are broadening their search of a husband to other regions of the world. 10 million men, it is obvious that many Russian ladies will never find their husband in their homeland.
I hear this question all the time, from men and media, "Why Russian women want to leave Russia?
If you type in any searching system word combinations such as russian women, russian brides, russian girls, you will find a huge number of dating sites so called mail order brides agencies.
Many of them are in Russian, Ukraine, Belarus, but many of them have offices in the USA.
You may ask me then why there are so many ads of Russian women seeking men abroad, on the Internet, seeking men in countries like United States, Canada, Australia and Europe - yes, this is true, but this doesn't mean Russian women WANT to leave Russia or marry western men.
Russian women want to marry good men and have a normal family and children, and it's not always possible in Russia for all of them.
