Almost ten million people live in Belarus, with over 80% of those people being of Belarusian decent.
This is the first edition of this kind in Russia and a large group of specialists from Russia, Israel and other countries participated in the project. I needed to wire her the money plus a bank charge of 25% in order for her to obtain the visa and trip. Right after this she mentioned a wonderful trip sponsored by the local University and set up by an Aunt and it would allow her to visit New York on a visitor's visa for 3 weeks and we could meet. On my own I sent her a small sum () via Western Union to cover internet access fees. Of course in the first month she said she was doing fine and didn't need any money.
You will be pleased to have such a feminine yet strong woman in your life.
