This is a very old message, 2006, and I see NO reaction! Strange. And a pity for me. Your question is important to more people I think. My wife is Russian, I live in Spain. During two years we try to find a place where we can live together, without running against a brick wall of documents. It might be Cyprus. I really don't know. I hope that someone wants to help us out of this endless and sad situation. Regards, Plutarchis.
