    I went by choice. My best friend at University was Ukrainnian. I visited had a great time, found a wonderful country, nice people, had lots of job offers and decided to stay. Why would you think no one would come here by choice?
    I have visited or lived in more than 100 countries and this is in the top ten for me.

    I was watching the Olypics recently and it was stated that Ukraine is one of the poorest and most depressing places in the world.
    Could have been western propoganda though eh? On the other hand you may be enjoying unnaturally large wages as you are connected to a university?
    Have you visited Stalingrad?

    There is no city called Starlingrad in Ukraine.
    Ukraine poor. I do not think so. Propaganda perhaps. I remember visiting the US for the first time and thinking how it was nothing like we are shown on the TV. Detroit has areas that look like the aftermath of WOrld War Three with houses for sale at less than $10,000
    I not work for a University. I am a presenter on English Russian Language TV.
    Great fun and a good living but I have other financial interests which keep me from having to worry about money.
    Before they say Ukraine is depressing I need to send them to some areas in Detroit:mad:

    I know that Bickers, I meant Stalingrad without the 'r'. I thought you may visit it as it is a very popluar place to go for enthusiasts of WWII. Although if you are an American you would probably prefer Berlin eh?

    Stalingrad is twinned with Coventry in England, probs due to the fact that both suffered a pounding by Nazi bombers. It is actully in russia now, but used to be in the USSR and is not far from Ukraine. has it never come up on one of your TV shows?

    Volgograd, for a short time, Starlingrad. No one talks of Starlin as I guess no one talks of Hitler in Germany. Ukraine like other eastern Eropean countries now looks back to and builds its own culture, much of which is relected on its Postage Stamps. I present shows for those learning English, so politics is not a big subject.
    Bickerstone Hall is in Lincolnshire, England.

    He also killed more people than Hitler. And do remember he was on Hitlers side at the begining of the war. He not very popular in Poland. Now I think we should end this as it is too political for my liking.

    Sure, not a problem. Still it would be a dull world if all we ever talked about was stamps eh?
    I'm sure you will have other interests other wise you would make a strange sort of TV persoanlity.
