Warning to anyone who may have seen that message claiming to be from Ukraine.
DO NOT SEND MONEY TO THEM. I checked the person out, and they are from CALIFORNIA, NOT UKRAINE.
That is a scam trying to get you to send them money, and pretending to be from Ukraine. That is why you NEVER, NEVER, NEVER send anyone money who has asked for it over the Internet.
People will try to leverage your sympathies to separate you from your money. The next time this same guy may say that he's from Pakistan and his wife needs an artificial leg (I've heard that one a few times), or his wife is dying from cancer, or he just lost his house, or he's a flood victim. You get the idea.
