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.
