At least three photos are required: one showing her portrait, one of her whole figure and the third one portraying her engaged in an activity she enjoys.
In case a woman does not have these photos, a professional photographer is assigned to her so she could provide high-quality photos for uploading on the dating website.
Those would require some assistance of a translator to be able to exchange messages with you.
To be supportive of their efforts, use simple language and avoid idioms that only a native speaker could understand. It will show them that you care for them and that you appreciate their trouble with learning a different language for the sole purpose of being able to talk to you.
If you ask yourself why that is so and why there aren’t more beautiful Russian women looking for casual relationships without commitment, the answer is in their upbringing.

But again, choose wisely, do not go for the hot looks alone; carefully read several girls’ profiles before deciding on whom to contact.
