CNN Special on UK Sex Trafficking

This video report completely speaks for itself. The special looks into the sex industry in the UK and even posts a fake website that advertises sex with women that represent a large community of trafficking victims in the UK: young, Eastern European girls. The sex advertised is unprotected sex and it shows just how quickly responses come and how much money can be made.

The special also goes to Romania where this reporter is able to find areas of known sex trafficking rings, and is able to even get a price on the permanent sale of a young Romanian woman.

    A Sumy regional anti-trafficking unit has uncovered a set up for sending young women from Ukraine to Turkey to work as prostitutes.

    According to the Sumy Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, law enforcement officers received information about two brothers organizing recruitment and “sale” abroad from two young women who explained what had happened to them.

  2. Thank you for the link to the article. KHPG does a lot of really great research and activism not only on trafficking, but on a whole range of human rights issues in Ukraine, and publishes a lot in English. I would recommend the site for anyone looking for more information on modern Ukrainian political and human rights developments.
