Operation Immigrant – 1st to 31st March 2010

February 25, 2010

Well dear readers, the nation of Ukraine……well actually the Ministry of the Interior, OVIR, Customs and Borders officials etc etc…….start Operation Immigrant on 1st March for the entire month.

Any foreigner caught having overstayed, breaching work permit laws, visa regulations, registration irregularities……or complete lack of registration……..will be locked up, handed a deportation order, put on a bus and thrown out of the country.

No excuses or any ignorance of the law will be acceptable……..you will go and not be allowed back for 6 months or a year!

So if you are here illegally, better buy a lot of cat food for your cat……..as if you are stopped at the Metro Station, Bus Station, Train Station, Airport……or even in the street……..you will be gone that day with nobody to feed your cat!

Even if you have all the apropriate stamps, visas, work permits in your passport checks at the issuing OVIRs can take place to confirm that all supporting documents are in order there………..so what price a filing error eh?

Proactive checks begin on 1st March for the entire month……..and maybe repeated later in the year also……so you have been warned!

Yeh, I know you haven’t done it as you don’t speak Russian or Ukrainian and didn’t know how to fill the forms in, the landlord wouldn’t register you, work permits are for others etc etc…….that’s why companies like Odessa-PA exist……to keep you here legally…….but of course you were never going to get caught so spent the money on beer and women instead.

Unfortunately for you, in a drive towards “European standards” of border control…….you now need to start to respect the immigration laws of Ukraine people!

Ashton, Buzek and Fule attend Yanukovych inauguration

February 25, 2010

Interfax-Ukraine Three top EU officials will represent the European Union at the inauguration of Ukraine’s newly elected president, Viсtor Yanukovych.

EU High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission Catherine Ashton, President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek and European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule will attend the event, Chairman of the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Cooperation Committee Ukraine Pawel Kowal said during a seminar on Ukraine in Brussels on Wednesday.

In addition, the EU is waiting for a confirmation of Yanukovych’s visit to Brussels, which was reportedly scheduled for March 1.

Now there is one good reason to have the EU hierarchy…….no need for 27 leaders from Europe to attend and no need for 27 lots of security!
