An entrepreneur has set up a dating club to help 'exceptional' bachelors from the Far East find Ukrainian girlfriends through monthly speed-dating events.
China-born Kharkiv-based Mei Aisi, 35, became an internet sensation in his motherland after sharing pictures of his Ukrainian wife, Daria Mei, on social media platforms.'Chinese people couldn't believe a guy as ugly and academically unsuccessful as me could have a gorgeous wife like that,' said Mr Mei, who moved to Ukraine in 2001 to look for a new life after failing his university entrance examination in China.
'Among them, five couples have announced their engagement,' said Mr Mei.

He said: 'Some people have accused our club as a human trafficking ring or even international prostitution group.
I want to stress that this is definitely not the case.'Everyone has the right to find happiness.

The juxtapositions in Kyiv are manifold: people are either really hard on each other or very kind, the architecture beautiful or ugly, the smiles are wide and real, or faces rigid like stone, the women hot and the guys not (some exceptions here), people drink a lot or a little, service is excellent or terrible, people just get by or are rich (small middle class), the weather is post-apocalyptically dark or pleasantly uplifting….
