Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)

I have a complex question. I have a friend who is an Israeli citizen, who is facing deportation. He was married ten years ago, in Russia (the Ukraine). His wife is also Russian, now a citizen of Israel. My friend is currently being held for criminal charges--attempted grand larceny. It's a case which in all probability will be dismissed, but upon dismissal my friend will be transferred to an immigration holding facility. Thereafter I believe he will most likely be deported, because he did not have a permit/license to work and has no ties to this country, and no visa. He is in love with an American woman and she is in love with him, but he has been avoiding divorcing his first wife. Now he thinks marrying our American friend could be the only thing to keep him from being deported, but I don't even know what that would entail. It certainly seems like a long shot, not just personally complicated. What would be involved in obtaining the divorce? Is it necessary to go to Russia? Can he and his first wife file here, and what is the likely timeframe?


Unfortunately, I can provide you with information on the divorce procedure in Russia and Ukraine only. To answer your questions, I need to know both spouses' citizenship, where they live currently in Russia or Ukraine, and also see the copy of their Marriage Certificate.
