Chervona Ruta may be as much the victim as you are. There is probably serious political pressure to keep the rates low for the locals and free for certain select people. These ships were once government owned assets that mysteriously fell into the hands of Kiev's former mayor (the crook was named Zgurska) and some of his henchmen. None of the big wigs complained too much because they let all of them and their families travel for free. That $370 rate your wife got is probably quite negotiable, depending on how much political pull she can muster. If Chervona Ruta doesn't play the game, it losses its docking rights, the Tax Administration guy starts to come on a regular basis, etc. It's Ukraine man. Get used to it.
