Women Trafficked Out of Russia Between 1995 to 2005

Human trafficking in Russia has moved an estimated 500,000 to 850,000 women out of the country between 1995 and 2005.

Human Trafficking Expert Louis Shelley writes “many of these women, however, went abroad to work in a variety of difficult labor situations and only a much smaller share went directly into the sex industry.”
