In recent times, Ukraine has become a popular prostitution and sex trafficking destination.
Ukrainian women and children are subjected to forced sexual services and sex trafficking within the country and to other European, Central Asian and Middle Eastern countries.
Ukraine's dissolution from the Soviet Union, saw the nation attempt to transition from a planned economy to a market economy.
Research by the State Institute for Family and Youth Issues indicates that, for many women, sex work has become the only adequate source of income: more than 50% of them support their children and parents The majority of women cross the border with these genuine documents as opposed to being smuggled.
Once they arrive in their destination country, they are frequently trapped by pimps taking away their visas, or by owing the pimps money to be paid off with prostitution. While individual prostitution is not classified as a criminal offense, engagement in prostitution is an administrative offence in Ukraine as of 12 June 1987, when it was forbidden by Supreme Court of Ukraine and individuals are susceptible to a fine of 255 Hryvnia (approximately ).
However, there are other laws in place that aim to control pimping and the organization and operation of brothels.
Article 303 in The Criminal Code of Ukraine addresses pimping and involvement in employment prostitution.
It states that "involving or compelling a person to prostitution by deceit, blackmail, distress of the person concerned, or using violence or threats, thereof pimping is punishable by imprisonment for a term of three to five years" If this act is committed in respect to a group of individuals, the sentence extends to a term of four to seven years.
Based on article 303, pimping of a minor (below 18 years) is a crime that is punishable by imprisonment of five to ten years.
