Default Cheaper fares from Kiev to the US

Rules require that the beneficiary pay for the airfare to come to the US.
This means I send her the money to do that, with no way to negotiate rates
or check alternate carriers. Does anyone have a tip on how to get a lower
fare coming out of Kiev to go to the US?

What "rules" are you referring to?
Why should the consulate care who arranges the ticket for someone
immigrating to the US?
I have never heard of this.

They do? Where did you read this?

Travel sites on the web can help.

Could the poster maybe be confused with having read something about the
beneficiary having to pay for a return flight if refused or something
similar?

I highly doubt it. Does anybody know who are the people requesting that
who pays? I mean if the person walks into a "travel agent" and purchases
a ticket with cash (not very many people use checking accounts and
credit cards in Ukraine) how is the "travel agent" to know whose cash
that was?

For somebody immigrating to another country there is no return flight.
And my fiancee was refused and returned (later we got through though). I
had only purchased a one way ticket for her anyway and had to later
purchase another one way ticket back. Something sounds suspicous here...
