Well, having been around that block a few times, I can tell you a little about some of the sites and agencies I've encountered in one form or another, both the good and bad. But for most of my reviews I give good, common-sense reasons for my positive or negative reviews... I DO receive affiliate commissions from some sites if you click through to them and order anything, but I can reasonably demonstrate that this does not skew my objectivity by pointing out two facts: (1) some of the sites for whom I offer critical reviews offer lucrative affiliate programs.
OK, this isn't a dating site, but this nationally televised reality TV series on the subject of international dating/matchmaking will probably be of great interest to most readers of this site, so I wanted to give it my thorough review.

Russian dating sites that offer good honest service will usually continue to do so as long as they are under the same ownership/management, and those that are scammy and crooked will usually continue that way.
Since Elena's Models' "upgrade", is the runaway best in the world of Russian dating sites, offering great service, an ENORMOUS database, many beautiful Russian/Ukrainian women, very strict scam control, and very competitive prices. One of the newer Ukrainian/Russian dating sites is Match Guaranty.
But if you can get past that, it is one of the best Russian dating sites and has gorgeous Russian women and honest services. These two sites, and many others, are part of the umbrella operation, which specializes in international online matchmaking.
