Today, Moldova is regarded as the poorest country in Europe. Moldova is primarily a source country for victims of human #Trafficking, who are frequently forced to become sex workers in the Middle East. endslaverynow.org/blog/articles/… via @EndSlaveryNow
During the era of the USSR, human trafficking by crime groups was low. However, human trafficking occurred on a massive scale at the hands of the state. In the 1940s and 1950s, more than 250,000 Moldovans were deported to labor camps in Siberia.
The state denied the existence of prostitution in the USSR while supporting it.

Prostitution and sex slavery proliferated behind the Iron Curtain. Towards the end years of the USSR, prostitution and other deviant activities moved into the hands of large, organized crime groups
As the USSR neared social and economic collapse in its final years, human trafficking became an increasingly profitable enterprise. Widespread corruption did little to curb the rise in sexual exploitation of women from the Eastern Bloc.
Orphanages became recruitment factories where girls in the most vulnerable positions in society were handed over to traffickers
