Ukraine: Orthodox Church hold seminar on people trafficking

 The Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate recently held a seminar in Kyiv on the problem of human trafficking. Those taking part were clergy from various regions of Ukraine, teachers from Sunday schools and catechism courses, and organizers of Orthodox youth camps. The participants were told that many Ukrainian women go abroad to earn money, and hundreds have been lured into the sex trade by unscrupulous people traffickers. The seminar concluded that it was necessary to establish a special centre to mediate between the church and police in order to counteract human trafficking. Source: RISU
