Social workers were stunned to find Cary Dolego, 53, sitting on a city street last Wednesday, behaving strangely and suffering from pneumonia.
Dolego, who ran for Arizona governor just last year, had traveled to Ukraine this spring to do research for an engineering project and look for a wife.
"He looked bad — his clothes were dirty, he was dirty, he looked like a typical homeless man," said Anastasia Beridze of the Narodna Dopomoha (People's Help) charity.
A woman who acknowledges being Yulia says she had been unaware of Dolego's existence during the Internet fling.
If you live in the USA, then the website where you meet Russian women must comply with the requirements of the IMBRA (the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act ) law.The woman, who declined to give her last name out of fear of attracting publicity, said in an interview with the AP that someone had hacked into her account on an Internet dating site and had been communicating with Dolego on her behalf, charging Dolego for those e-mails. Yulia, a 29-year-old doctor by training, said that after she found out what happened to Dolego, she paid him a visit to express her sympathy.The woman, who was contacted through a mobile phone number provided by Dolego, acknowledged that the account he'd been interacting with on the site was hers. "I went to the hospital and he started hugging me: 'Oh Yulia, oh Yulia! "He thought we were getting married." Dolego confirmed that she visited him and he believes they could still be together. "She wants to continue with the relationship." Yulia has a different take. Before his Ukrainian adventure, Dolego, of Queen Creek, Arizona, says he was pursuing a bachelor's degree in organizational studies at the University of Arizona.I'm sociable girl, with a sense of humor I love children and animals.I like travelling, I am tall slim blond with burning brown eyes.
