Young people jailed for posting online sexually suggestive pictures taken in Moscow, St Petersburg and elsewhere. Police have launched a wave of investigations against young people, mainly women, in recent weeks for taking partially nude or sexually suggestive photographs next to Russian landmarks. Bobiev, a blogger from Tajikistan, was also ordered to be deported from Russia. Other women have been detained for flashing their buttocks or breasts in front of public landmarks or police stations in various cities including St Petersburg and Yekaterinburg in cases that stretch back to August. Several of those investigated said they were not responsible for the material being put online.
One of the strongest states in Europe a millennium ago, Ukraine has had a devastating century, including two forced famines, first under Lenin, in and , and then under Stalin, a decade later. In , Russia annexed Crimea and fomented war in eastern Ukraine, leading to nearly fifty per cent inflation the following year and to more than ten thousand civilian casualties and the internal displacement of some one and a half million people.

Based on what you have written about your GF, my opinion is that you should cut your losses and move on. I fear the idea of growing to resent him. Mormon chicks have way damaged views on human intimacy. I believe strongly that I was meant to marry my spouse. It did not go well. Try a variety of dates. I knew a woman who married a man who converted to the church and she spent the rest of their married life telling him he was not good enough. Although there are no strict rules as to who should do the asking, the Mormons are very conservative and in general, they expect guys to do the asking. I am not a doctor's wife so I won't say I understand, but I will give you a virtual hug.
