Ever since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine has suffered from a booming sex trade. Estimated by police to be worth $1.5 billion last year, prostitution in Ukraine has been exacerbated by the international economic crisis, a weak Ukrainian national currency and fueled by cheap airfare and a free-visa policy for US and EU citizens, and so fosters a sex tourism industry that has persisted for many years. Although illegal, laws prohibiting prostitution have had little effect against criminal organizations and clients; instead, laws punish women working as prostitutes in Ukraine, a country that has experienced a national unemployment rate of 50%.
The severity of the Ukraine prostitution problem is clearly demonstrated by Ukraine’s role as having been one of the world’s largest exporters of women to the international sex trade, at one time worth in the vicinity of $5 to $22 billion. In 1998, it was estimated that more than 100,000 women, mostly minors, had be forced to work as sex workers in the West; at that time, 80% of Ukraine women who had went abroad for better opportunities and employment had no idea they would be forced into prostitution. However, in recent years forced human trafficking in Ukraine has given way to a new generation of women who voluntarily and knowingly enter prostitution, citing the fact that no other choices are offered to them in an environment of debilitating poverty.
This issue is so severe that Ukraine interior minister Yuriy Lutsenko declared on national television that “The country is becoming a paradise for sex tourism before our eyes.” The non-governmental women’s rights group FEMEN has held demonstrations loudly protesting that “Ukraine is not a brothel,” and, “Sex is not for sale.”
Ukraine’s street beauties [streetwalkers] become a “disaster/problem”
Within the former Soviet Union, Ukrainian girls were the best. Compared to Russian beauties, Ukrainian girls are even more refined. Not only are their bodies slim and their faces elegant, their skin color is also fair, clear, and tender. It is because of this that many overseas tourists regard Ukraine as the first destination for “sex tourism” but this has attracted protests from local women’s rights groups who want to explicitly convey to Western tourists that “Ukraine is not a brothel”.
Comments from Mop:
These beauties are not bad.
Not bad… so many… although they are “that” way… ["that way" is not specified]
Let me go provide disaster relief.
[A place where there are] many beautiful girls is good, once [I'm] free [I'll] also go there to party/play around.
Truly a disaster~~who wants to come with me and provide disaster relief?
It’s because their mouths are especially big, you know what I mean. [referring to the sex tourism stereotype]
Fuck~ so PL [漂亮, piao liang, pretty]~ I’m drooling…
Not bad~~are you suggesting that we go abroad in the future to find girlfriends?
Quickly import a bunch of them.
All come to the Celestial Kingdom then; the Celestial Kingdom is really short of females.
Come to China.
Are there really a lot of beautiful women?
Next time I’ll reincarnate as a man over there!
The Ukrainian girls around here appear to be quite open and cheerful, their figures are quite curvy, but their noses are too big. Korean girls seem to be pretty good, very gentle and ladylike, but I don’t know whether or not they have had cosmetic surgery.
Transport them over to China–
One hundred thousand, three days, guaranteed virgin.
The former president of Ukraine and oil queen and natural gas princess, Yulia Tymoshenko, is a high-class beauty!
Very pure and chaste.
It seems as though there really aren’t any bad looking ones.
The average quality [of each Ukrainian woman's beauty] is very high.
If Europeans aren’t allowed to go, then we Chinese will go. Everybody, advance…………
One day, one of those women will be mine.
[I] don’t have any money.
I also want to go to the Ukraine…. to find a wife.
It certainly is different from the Celestial Kingdom [there in Ukraine].
Brother [referring to self] needs to go comfort himself. [masturbation joke]
Foreigners, not interested.
Guangzhou welcomes you [ladies]~
Sigh, each and every one of them has big breasts…
No matter how many, I still won’t go, [because] they’re all whores.
Hey lou zhu, how much does it cost to marry one and bring her back home?
