Roger Wright’s article about marriage agencies being a scam (Kyiv Post, May 27, “American comes up empty-handed in 10-year search for Ukrainian wife”) is absolutely true and I should know.
I have lived in Kyiv and run a marriage agency for almost 10 years. The marriage agency industry is a scam industry that makes lawyers look like angels.
What Wright mentioned is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg. He wrote that the agencies are full of “professional daters” and “no quality Ukrainian women would use an agency.”
