Aspects of horrific phenomena such as child trafficking and the distribution of child pornography in the occupied Crimea were highlighted in the “ARC” submission to the UN Special Rapporteur on the sale and sexual exploitation of children, including child prostitution, child pornography and other child sexual abuse material, Ms. Mama Fatima Singhateh. The submission was provided for the Rapporteur’s questionnaire on the gender measurement of such exploitation, for preparation of a follow-up report to the 76th session of the UN General Assembly. In its submission, the “ARC” highlighted the vulnerability of the occupied territories’ population to serious criminal challenges, such as child trafficking and sexual exploitation of children.

The Association stated that since 2014, the Russian invaders’ “administration” not only pursues the relevant anti-social actions in Crimea, but has in fact merged with relevant common-criminal groups, including ethnic ones, involved in child trafficking and distribution the child pornography in the Crimea. The Rapporteur was informed of the “ARC” analytical materials, according to which the relevant ethnic common-criminal group from Yalta, specializing in child trafficking, was involved by the Russian special services and by the invaders’ “administration” to finance the “Friends of Crimea” project and to organize relevant visits of the Austrian, French, Switz and other third countries’ marginal politicians to the peninsula with with precisely unknown purposes.
