I haven't found exact figures about the number of Russian citizens on the territory of Ukraine or in Crimea but if we are speaking about Russians as an ethnic group, they make up about 17% of total population of Ukraine (more than 50% in Crimea and 70% in Sevastopol).

I haven't found any news about Poltava passport office having difficulties, so it is working on normal schedule.
I have a female friend in Kherson I have been writing to her for a long time. She told me that recently she got a job offer to work in Germany. I live in America, so I do not fully understand the concept of european union and non european union labor that well.
She told me that her female friend lives there in Germany already and has helped her to get a job, but she also told me that she is not sure where she will be living or working in Germany before she left to go.
My question is this: My friend cannot speak german, nor can she speak english. How is it possible for her to go and work in Germany? Does it sound honest? Seems a little off to me? She told me she would contact me once she is settled in, but has not done so yet? Curious? Thanks.
A lot of people from Ukraine, other countries of Eastern Europe prefer to go to Western Europe to get a job. Germany attracts a lot of these migrant workers. Usually people coming to work there have at least some knowledge of German or English and your situation is looking a bit suspicious.
But according to her story her friend helped her, so may be there is a company there with a lot of people speaking Russian/Ukrainian and they stay in a group and don't get in contact with locals. Anyway, it is a difficult task to find out if her story is true or fake.
