The Soviet bride safaris: Inside the seedy parties where Western men hunt for impoverished young Russians and Ukrainians to make 'traditional, sexy' wives

苏维埃新娘之旅:西方男人到俄罗斯和乌克兰寻找传统、性感的老婆。

The ratio of women to men can be ten to one, or 'about as close to paradise as you get,' according to a balding Home Counties civil servant on his first visit to Ukraine.

“这里的男女比例为1:10,和你能够想象的天堂差不多了”,这位初次来到乌克兰的秃顶的郡公务员被这样告知。



Welcome to the mail-order bride industry in the old Soviet Union, aimed heavily at British and American men who have failed to find love at home.
'A lot of the blokes here think we've died and gone to heaven,' said the tubby 47 year old who works for a Home Office agency as he eyed a gaggle of revealingly dressed young women who would not have seemed out of place on a Parisian catwalk.

欢迎来到前苏联国家的邮购新娘产业,此产业主要是以在本国找不到老婆的英国和美国男人为目标。“许多来到这里的男人以为自己来到天堂了”,这个在内政部门工作的桶形身材的47岁男人这样说道,眼睛直勾勾盯着一个虽然服装搭配不太协调,但长的和在巴黎时装周走T台的模特差不多的年轻女孩。



Typically men pay between £1,500 and £3,000 to visit several former Soviet cities on tours which are 'designed so that all you have to concern yourself with is meeting as many women as possible.'
Many of the scenes in our pictures are from a 'Romance Tour' to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev but such images are repeated across the old Soviet empire from Volgograd to Veliky Novgorod.
And if Ukraine is known for its basket case economy, the dating market - critics prefer the term 'cattle market' - appears to be thriving, eased in part by far easier visa rules than to Russia, and a number of other former states in the fallen USSR.

通常那些男人要支付1500到3000英镑到几个前苏联城市进行相亲之旅,在那里和尽可能多的女人见面。我们照片中的许多场景都来自乌克兰首都基辅的“浪漫之旅”,但是这样的场景你可以在这个前苏维埃帝国的任何地方见到,从伏尔加格勒到诺夫哥罗德。
如果乌克兰以其瘫痪的经济著称,那么约会市场则被批评者形容为“牲口市场”,越来越多这样的市场出现在更容易获得签证的前苏联加盟共和国。



The men are promised that, at 'Socials' as in the pictures here, they will be in the company of 'sincere, young, beautiful women who believe in family values'. They are feverishly told to expect to meet 'more beautiful women in 11 days than you will in five years'.

这些男人被承诺他们将找到“真诚、年轻、漂亮、忠于家庭的女子”。他们被兴奋的告知,他们呆在这里的11天内将比过去5年里见到的漂亮女人还多。


At these occasions, typically some 15 to 25 men will be introduced to 150 to 250 women, often having to communicate via an interpreter. Many of the men are often double the age, or more, of the women.

在这些场合,通常会有150到250名妇女介绍给15到20个男人,他们通过翻译进行交流。这些男人通常比这些女人的年龄大两倍还多。

'Our clients date up to five ladies per day,' boasts the website of 'A Foreign Affair', which offers single Western men tours to a number of locations including Russia and Ukraine.
'The Kiev Romance Tour offers you the unique opportunity to visit one of the most historic cities in all of the former Soviet Union, while at the same time meet thousands of beautiful Ukrainian women,' it states. 'Our Kiev Romance Tours provide you with an extremely effective means to meet as many women as possible so you can find that special one.'

“我们的客户每天和5个女人约会”,一个旨在向单身西方男人提供到俄罗斯和乌克兰进行相亲之旅网站这样宣传。“我们的基辅浪漫之旅向你提供极为高效的方式,使你能够见到尽可能多的妹子,从而能够选择到合适自己的”。


As one site says about the backwater of Poltava: 'Both the city and the women are enjoyable.'Poltava has contributed some of the best Socials our company has ever had the privilege to host. Beautiful Poltava women with their relaxed an easy-going, smaller city attitude help to make our stay one of the most enjoyable two days on any of our exciting single tours.'

一个网站这样介绍波尔塔瓦(乌克兰东部城市),“这座城市和它的女人都很好”,“我们很多次的聚会地点都定在波尔塔瓦,美丽的波尔塔瓦女人有着随和的性格,可以使我们尽情享受这两天兴奋的旅程”。

The civil servant - like many on such trips he is is keen on retaining his anonymity - told me: 'I've got a failed marriage behind me and several subsequent relationships did not work out.

一位和其他参与此次旅程的人一样不想透露姓名的公务员告诉我:“我有过一次失败的婚姻和几段失败的感情经历”“我想要一个传统的老婆,其他和我一样来到这里来的人都是这样想的”。

Many of the men are often double the age, or more, of the women.

In my opinion, this sentence should be translated as:
这些男人通常比这些女人的年龄一倍或更多。

Or

这些男人的年龄通常这些女人的两倍或更多。
