This article talks about Russian owned hotels and other businesses, that could be run by Putin’s Puppets, siphoning money back to Russia, and being a base from which to spy from. It mentions the Hotel Rus, which I stayed at during my last trip to Ukraine.
I was originally at the Slavutich Hotel, but they had that hostile takeover during my stay,,, and people were supposedly shot during that. I slept through it I guess?
They let me stay for the rest of that day, but the next morning I had to go. They sent me to the Rus, saying I would get an upgrade for the same price. The Rus was much nicer,,, but the room was about the same. I went from a better or best room at the Slavutich, to the cheapest at the Rus. The Rus seemed to be right down town, but I preferred the location of the Slavutich. Restaurants, grocery store, money exchange, ATMs, little gift shops, and a nice walk along the Dnieper river in view of the “Creator of Ukraine” statue. I found the location to be very convenient.
Rick and Beemer mocked me for promoting this hotel, saying it was like putting lipstick on a pig,,,, but it must have been good enough to steal?? And,, it was renovated in 2008, just before I stayed there.
The hotel is currently booked,,, no rooms available.
The article has two paragraphs for free. Then, you have to pay to see the rest of the post.
The WORLD WIDE WEB is full of links. Very rarely do you pay to read them. All you need to do is click. Why anyone would cut and paste a link, remove the spaces and then pay to read the entire post is beyond me.
