Ukraine is a country of origin, transit and increasingly of destination for trafficked men, women and children. Internal trafficking is also a growing problem. According to a research commissioned by IOM, over 110,000 Ukrainians became victims to human trafficking since 1991, which makes Ukraine one of the largest countries of origin of slave labour in Europe. IOM?s counter-trafficking activities in Ukraine started in 1998. Since then IOM Ukraine has assisted more than 8000 victims of trafficking.
