2005 Report Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000:

UKRAINE (TIER 2 – WATCH LIST)

Ukraine is primarily a source country for men, women, and children
trafficked to Europe, the Middle East, and Russia for the purposes of
sexual exploitation and forced labor. Recent studies indicate an increase
in internal trafficking for all forms of exploitation and a growing
problem of trafficking in minors. Ukraine continued to serve as a
significant transit country for Asian and Moldovan victims trafficked to
Western destinations.

The Government of Ukraine does not fully comply with the minimum standards
for the elimination of trafficking; however, it is making significant
efforts to do so. Ukraine has been placed on Tier 2 Watch List because of
its failure to show evidence of increasing efforts and its commitment to
take additional future steps over the next year, particularly in the area
of victim protection and prosecution of trafficking-related complicity.
Ukraine’s new government, which assumed power in late 2004, is expected to
respond more effectively to institutional weaknesses and corruption, which
hindered the previous government’s anti-trafficking efforts. The
government should create a special witness protection program for
trafficking victims, expand the legal definition of trafficking to conform
with international requirements, ensure the appropriation of consistent
resources for the anti-trafficking unit, and conduct sensitivity training
to reduce victim blaming and breaches of victim confidentiality.
