Combating human trafficking: explanations and video information

The Law of Ukraine “On Combating Trafficking in Human Beings” defines the concept of human trafficking, in particular, paragraph 15 of part one of Article 1, namely Trafficking in human beings is the execution of an illegal transaction involving a person, as well as recruitment, transfer, harbouring, transfer or receipt of a person committed for the purpose of exploitation, including sexual exploitation, with the use of deception, fraud, blackmail, vulnerable state of a person or with the use or threat of violence, abuse of office or material or other dependence on another person, which are recognised as a crime under the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

Exploiters make a profit by controlling and exploiting other people. This problem can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, education or social status. Exploitation can take place both inside and outside the country.

Today in Ukraine there is a tendency to increase the number of Ukrainians who go abroad to work. Taking advantage of the attractiveness of work abroad, fraudsters use hundreds of different ways to deceive honest people: from recommendations to pay for a consultation, to prepare documents or send them to an employer, to getting into labour slavery.

Human trafficking can take many forms:

– labour exploitation

– forced begging;

– forced involvement in criminal activity and armed conflict;

– trafficking for the purpose of organ removal, forced surrogacy, etc.

– Threatened, beaten or raped, mocked or subjected to psychological pressure;

– Forced to do work they did not want to do, using physical or psychological violence;
