    Some border crossing phrases!

    See my "CIS countries travel blog" to understand the background for these phrases!
    I want to know how to say them in natural sounding and grammatically correct Russian.
    -------------------------------------------
    "I have read on the official PMR site, that I do not need a visa for a short visit, what is this payment for?
    "I want to visit as a tourist, and stay for one night at the "CityClub" hotel".
    "I have really been looking forward to this visit....
    "I support the independence of your country."
    "I only have 20 euro on me, that is all I can pay you. (maximum bribe level that I am prepared to pay....)
    "I cannot understand Russian very well, please can you speak more slowly and use simple words?".

    "I have read on the official PMR site, that I do not need a visa for a short visit, what is this payment for?
    => На официальном сайте написано, что для короткого посещения виза не нужна. Почему я должна платить?

    "I want to visit as a tourist, and stay for one night at the "CityClub" hotel".
    => Я хочу посетить вашу страну в качестве туриста и собираюсь остановиться на ночь в гостинице Сити-Клуб.

    "I have really been looking forward to this visit....
    => Я с нетерпением ждала этой поездки...

    "I support the independence of your country."
    => Я поддерживаю независимость вашей страны.

    "I only have 20 euro on me, that is all I can pay you. (maximum bribe level that I am prepared to pay....)
    => У меня с собой только двадцать евро. Это всё, что я могу вам дать.

    "I cannot understand Russian very well, please can you speak more slowly and use simple words?".
    => Я не настолько хорошо знаю русский. Пожалуйста, говорите не так быстро и более простыми словами.

    Hope, it could help.

    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!
