Over 200 Ukrainians become victims of international human trafficking network – State Border Guard Service

More than 200 Ukrainian citizens have become victims of the international human trafficking network. Ukrainians, who came to Poland and Lithuania, were taken to the UK for forced labor.

Assistant to the chief of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine Oleh Slobodian said this during a press conference at the Ukrinform news agency.

"This channel was organized by participants from several countries and has operated from 2012. There are reasons to say that more than 200 people have become victims of organizers of this channel, but, unfortunately, not everyone wants to cooperate with the investigation," Slobodian said.

According to him, Ukrainians were taken to the UK, where gullible citizens were forced to work at the agricultural enterprises.
