Photocopies in lieu of originals to NVC

Hi, my wife is from Kazakhstan. I hope you'll forgive me for posting here rather than Europe/Eurasia. After much deliberation and a strong desire to obey the law, we opted to send photocopies of birth and marriage certs to the NVC with a letter explaining that originals are irreplaceable, certified copies unobtainable, and that the originals would be made available at interview. I am familiar that the NVC website demands the original/certified copy and overstates availability through ZAGS (she would either need to get born again, pay a bribe, or make a false statement to ZAGS). Call to the NVC help line has gotten conflicting answers. Can anyone speak from personal experience?

Did you mean to post this in the Russia section?

Yeah, I did. Russia/Ukraine has legal similarities to Kazakhstan. I posted there because I thought that someone from Russia/Ukraine would have some experience with my particular problem. I don't think that there's a huge pool of people from Kz, active on the forum right now. Could I get this moved back to the Russia forum?
