Hello, everyone!

I'm lesbian and, sadly, live in the RF. I'm just a persona, who wants to live in peace, but now, when the USA and EU accused RF and make a sanctions, I have 2 problems - my country hates me because I'm gay and the rest of the World hate me coz' I'm russian.

I just want to say that it's painfull and to me unfair that now I feel like I have no any moral support from anyone. Please don't forget about ordinary people, because, maybe you don't know and even don't understand how is that possible, our government when they have problems rise the pressure on people like me.

My colleagues hate me, my parents hate me, my government hate me, so please, you, make an exception... and be on my side...

You can find me on this page: http://vk.com/mr.mishkin
Sorry for bothering

Dear all

My Company is about to propose me a great job in Russia (Project Director in the infrastructure / transport business). I would like to get there as an expatriate with my boyfriend. Do you know if my boyfriend can follow me or how he can follow me or where to find information ?

Please note that we have a French Partnership (called PACS) together.

Thanks for your help

Note: It is getting seriously hard to do the job you like (Project Management of International Infrastructure Projects) as borders are often closed to family members of gay workers.
