    If she really wanted to come, she would ask you for an invitation (needed for the visa) and paid-for flight tickets.

    You would not send her any money, you would instead battle with the embassy in Moscow and the immigration office for her visa. Once you got this, you would then call up Aeroflot or Lufthansa, book the tickets in her name on your plastic and have the airline issue an electronic ticket.

    At the outmost you would send 100 EUR for her to get to the airport - after you paid for the flight tickets.
