K1 visas or fiancee visas are the best and usually the only way to get a lady from the third world into the US. Fiancee visas are the only marriage visas available for bringing Russian women (or from any country) to the United States for the purpose of immigration marriage.
Russian women and all foreign women make excellent wives and the reason so many of them marry American men is because there are 12 million more Russian women than men. Please do not marry your future foreign bride in her own country. You would have to be present in her country for a minimum of one month prior to the wedding and you would have to file her fiance visa petition in the US. This would take twice as long as fiancee visas.
Attorney prepared fiance visas applications are far more successful, speedier and hassle free than doing it yourself. The chance of making an error in the application process is just too great. Our selected attorneys specialize almost exclusively in the processing of fiancee visas. K1-Marriage-Visas.com attorneys charge only $1,300, the lowest rate in the business.

By the way, you must meet your future fiancee face to face and have photos taken of both of you together before you apply for fiancee visas. And certainly you should take the Fiancee Visa Do-it-Yourself Application Kit ($49.95) with you in order to help take care of fiancee visa preparations in her country.
