South Front | Ukranian women [protest] sexual exploitation in Europe, 28 June
In a interview published on Monday, June 27, Reuters' senior human rights advisor Heather Fischer, who is investigating the case, said: "European women, Eastern European woman, Ukrainian women, are already at risk, and often are lured and groomed and recruited into sex trafficking (...) So you put crisis on top of that, and now you have a recipe for increased spikes of demand for human trafficking (...) This might seem innocuous at first to the outside observer, but these trends can actually provide sort of an impetus for traffickers to capitalize the demand
In an investigation conducted by The Times in April, it was possible to observe several sexual predators offering shelter and Ukrainian refugees in Facebook groups. Some openly demanded sexual favors while others spoke more moderately but using suggestive vocabulary.

However, although investigations about this type of exploratory activity have been taking place since February, nothing has been done to protect these women so far. State authorities have blamed sexual predation on digital platforms that are unable to control such criminals' access to refugee assistance networks.
