Taking a one-off detour from her phenomenally successful “I AM…” tour, internationally renowned singer Beyonce Knowles will play her first ever show in Ukraine for the opening of the brand new Donbass Arena Stadium in late August.   The Donbass Arena is a brand new, 5-star stadium being built in the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. The project, said to cost almost 400 million US dollars was started in 2006 and is set to open August 29th. August 29th is Miner’s Day in Donetsk and as the Stadium will be the new home of local soccer team FC Shakhtar Donetsk, or in English, “Donetsk Miners”, the day is significant. Donetsk was founded in 1869 around several coal mines and the city, and indeed the entire Donbass area, has a proud blue-collar legacy that lives on today.   For more information: http://donbass-arena.com/en/

Christopher: I wanted to take this opportunity to Thank you for all your help and support - Your 'Ukrainian counterpart' Slava was extremely helpful, and I didn't have to wait for long for his reply and information. I just came back from being in the Ukraine for a week. The lady that I went there to meet, Leila, treated me like I was a 'celebrity'! I was never in want of anything, and her entire family not only accepted me, but treated me as 'one of their own' - Too, it was a very 'culturally enriching' experience learning firsthand about their country, customs, and beliefs - We do plan to marry, and I have already started the process of immigration to bring her here to the USA - We both understand, that this will be time consuming, and 'tedious' but we both believe that in the long run, it WILL BE WORTH IT!   Leila: Christopher and I are together at my agency. This is a true gift from God! God made all my dreams and wishes come true! He gave me the man I wanted with all my heart. He is compassionate and wise; he represents the best qualities a man, a husband and a father should have. I am very grateful to my agency for helping me to find my happiness. I thank God and my agency for becoming the bridge that connected our souls. Stay optimistic and have faith in God and you will have everything you wish for!

“Pirates of the Caribbean” star, Hollywood beau Johnny Depp, has reportedly agreed to star in a Russian film aimed at children.   One of America’s most profitable actors, Depp usually gets $20 million paychecks for his movies, but this time around money is not the motivator for the A-list star.   Jack Sparrow is set to appear in a film by an aspiring director from the Russian republic of Bashkortostan, where Europe meets Asia.   “It’s hard to believe it, but I’ve had a telephone conversation with Johnny Depp, and he’s personally confirmed his willingness,” Aleksandr Vakhitov told Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda. “I’m still impressed – I’ve talked with none other than Jack Sparrow! All the kids on our planet, as well as their parents, are crazy for him! He’s an ideal character for my new film for children!”   The lucky filmmaker told Komsomolskaya Pravda that it took him 3 months to get in touch with the celebrity. In fact, one of his close friends turned out to be well-connected in Hollywood and managed to catch up with Depp’s agents.   According to the Bashkir director, Depp has been inspired by the idea to play in a film aimed directly at children, as he’s worried by the shortage of children’s films around the world. He also said Depp was laughing out loud for five minutes when he found out what role the young director has in store for the star of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”.   Hopefully, Depp will guard his sense of humor and enthusiasm throughout the whole period of shooting in Bashkiria’s capital, Ufa.   Source: Russia Today

We could fill the next few paragraphs trying to convince you that we only permit qualified members to meet our ladies because we feel a substantial correspondence history between partners brings with it the comfort of knowing that both of you are truly serious in your search, or, that after compiling statistics obtained from the account balances of hundreds of members, we found that those who utilized at least 2500 credits throughout the duration of their membership, enjoyed greater success in finding ladies with whom they felt a connection, and ultimately experienced greater success when the time came to finally meet their match in person.   While all of the above is true, the bottom line is that this is a business, and like any other, we must cover our costs and make a profit if we are to continue offering our members the same level of service they have come to appreciate and ultimately depend upon.   Often times, those men who feel they should not have to meet certain qualifications in order to meet a lady on our site, end up purchasing the contact information of several other ladies from one of our competitors. Regrettably, more often than not, that information proves to be invalid, or if it is valid, the few ladies that do respond do so by saying they require the help of the agency to continue corresponding. Other men take tours thinking that they can skip the correspondence altogether, travel to Russia, meet their future wife within the timeframe of a week, obtain a fiancée visa, and have her in the US within a matter of months. The likelihood of this happening is very slim, and if it does, the likelihood of a meaningful relationship developing from such a process is practically nonexistent.   We offer an online experience our competitors simply cannot match. Our women are beautiful, our services unique, and we provide you with the most efficient and interactive web-based tools in this industry. Ever heard the old adage "You get what you pay for?" Well, if you want to purchase contact information at $15 a pop only to keep wondering whether or not the ladies you are corresponding with are real, that's your choice. However, when you get tired of the runaround and want a service that enables you to instantly validate each lady with your very own eyes, provides you with contact management tools no one else does, and offers quite simply the best online correspondence experience available, we welcome you with open arms!

Many people think that is not interesting to live in a small town because there are not so many places to visit but, believe me, small towns have their own charm. I can spend hours strolling along them, I disparately love these narrow and meandering streets, small houses, I like to observe lighted widows that hide the private life of people behind the curtains.   Whenever I notice that the sun is drooping, I hurry to the very center of my town to watch the sunset. Here am I, standing on the bridge, against the ginger sunlight, breathing with damp river air, feeling the wind touching my hair. The feeling of beauty carries me away, and I feel happy that I’m alive, that I’m able to see this beauty. I feel endless streams of consciousness that capture me and melt into eternity. So if you ever walk by, just stop for a moment on the bridge, near the forged gate and say ‘good bye’ to the setting sun to meet it with new spirits and enjoy its warmth tomorrow.

The only performance of the American pop star’s global “Sticky and Sweet” tour in Russia will be held on St. Petersburg’s Palace Square on August 2. Madonna holds a truly international crew: professionals from the US, Russia, Great Britain, France, Brazil, Japan and South Africa follow her on the tour. The organizers of the concert say Madonna is most likely to come with her children, thus besides dressing rooms for the singer and actors, a special children’s playing room will be prepared in a secret zone backstage. Proving her demanding tastes in food, Madonna will also bring her personal cook to Russia.   The Russian organizers of Madonna’s concert in St. Petersburg, the PMI music corporation, have guaranteed that the pop star’s show on August 2 won’t offend the moral and religious sensibilities of the citizens. St. Pete’s communists have urged the diva be respectful while performing in the historical Palace Square – and asked her to avoid pole dancing.   Source: http://www.russiatoday.com/

On this week’s episode of Miami Social, “The Better Lover”, the tension that had been mounting in previous weeks between George and his Russian girlfriend, Lina exploded into an all-out fight, while Maria, the young Russian professional photographer dealt with the lack of her daughter’s presence. In the previous episode of Miami Social, Maria’s daughter, Angelika, had left to attend boarding school in Switzerland. While she kept repeating what a great opportunity it was for Angelika, Maria seemed very upset by her daughter’s absence. She spent her most of the episode hanging out with her friend and fellow Social circle member Michael and chatting with Angelika on her webcam. Later on that episode, Lina received some shocking and exciting news, she was pregnant. The episode ended with her talking to a family member, unsure of what George’s reaction would be. Miami Social has spent three episodes focusing on the lives of a group of friends which contains two recent Russian immigrants. Maria, a worldly freelance photographer had initially been a way to see the life of a Russian mother, living in the US, but now with Lina and George’s revelation, we can only wonder if the focus of Miami Social may turn to Russian ladies and their families to an even greater extent than before.
