They take paypal and have a 99.7 rating. I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

No I'm sure it's the real deal. I do a lot of ebay but never outside of the USA. Just my input. Good luck with what ever way you go.

I've bought multiple things from The Ukraine via eBay - none of it cycling-related though. Never had a problem other than an extended shipping time for a couple things.

As pointed out above, the seller has a 1000+ positive rating. Good to go in my book.
Takes Paypal so your money/purchase is guaranteed by eBay/Paypal if you aren't satisfied.

I'd go for it.

If you have to ask if an eBay deal is legit it's probably best to keep walking.

Price is not that out of wack with what you can find at other internet retailers. I paid ~$55 for the last 10 sp Force cassette I bought. Check Chain Reaction...

less than $80 at amazon, free shipping and you can get it in two days if you have prime. I'm sure there are other outlets. $79 - $61 is only an $18 difference... not enough to make me buy from the Ukraine but that's just me.
