That makes sense that Steele and his family would have jokingly refereed to the Ukrainian woman as "my/your Ukrainian girlfriends".
And note how the media blatantly misstated Steele from the jail house recording where is said that the teddy bear was for "one of
my Ukrainian girlfriends
Edgar Steele explained to his son that government officials were trying to turn Cyndi Steele against her husband, and that they'd intentionally left out a present for his Ukranian girlfriend so that his wife would find it.
And in the recording it seems that Steele refers to a "case" and in legal case that his "Ukrainian girlfriends" are involved.
