I would like to put an add in a good local contact or newspaper in some Russian cities.
Does anybody know a good and reliable service for this purpose or give me advice how to find these papers ?
Has anyone experience about this ?

I did around 1999 in Ukraine, using a person i knew as a middleman.
Well, the choice of the provider is entirely yours: many agencies offer that service.
I wasn't [u]at all</u> pleased with the results, though.
You read that newspaper ads would be getting you literally hundreds of replies: FALSE. You also read newspaper ads will get you unspoilt, "serious" women only: FALSE : you stand no significantly higher chances than with your usual MOB/LD/WWW scene, perhaps because ads are published in sections (typically) devoted to foreign men's ads, hence the kind of audience they solicit roughly compares with one's typical MOB/LD/WWW audience.
I got under twenty replies overall.
Among the few people i retained, only a couple were OK ( although we didn't happen to be a match), while others were your typical MOB individual with ulterior motives; a sizeable % of single mothers; no porn flick material at all.
My ad was in Russian, included an email & a LOCAL postal address for replies & really circulated, as a search on the russian web would locate it still in 2002.

That was around 1999, thus waters can only be much muddier now than they used to be.
The fee i paid was very modest ( i don't remember exactly, but was around $100 ), thus you can try for the sake of it.
In my case it didn't work [u]any</u> wonder.
