In March 2022, both state institutions and non-governmental organizations started carrying out preventive activities to address the risks of trafficking in human beings among people fleeing the war in Ukraine. In this regard, posters informing all persons coming from Ukraine about the potential dangers of becoming victims of trafficking were printed and distributed to key state and non-governmental organizations. Posters, printed in the English and Ukrainian languages, also inform potential victims of their rights and of contact points where they can seek help and protection. In addition, leaflets in a number of languages (including Ukrainian) with more detailed content were distributed to relevant institutions. The police also pay special attention to the prevention and detection of crimes related to trafficking in human beings, with an emphasis on cooperation with the border police and non-governmental organizations. Criminal investigators specialized in identification of potential victims of trafficking are also proactively involved in these activities.
