The biggest difference between the Ukrainians and the Russians is that for most of Ukrainian history the cities were small, the country was rural, and the people were largely farmers.This meant that Russians often joked about the Ukrainians as being sort of backwoods hillbillies and the Ukrainians often thought of the Russians as effete city slickers.They often work in groups and set up multiple ads / accounts on many large dating sites. The scam consists of locating lonely females living in the US and Canada, establishing romantic relationship with them, and then asking them for an emergency loan needed to complete some kind of impending business transaction, like an investment (for example, in Russian oil, minerals, or other natural resources).The scammer produces a ton of impeccably looking fake documents, like irrevocable purchase orders, letters of payment, bank statements, etc, to convince the victim that the investment is real, and that together they would be able to make some handsome profit from the deal.
