Escort encourages men to live “war-inspired fantasies” by paying for sex with Ukrainian women fleeing the war in Ireland

  • The Irish sex trade is already responding to the refugee crisis, the expert said today
  • OSCE Representative Valentine Richie cited the site as an example
  • Ukrainian women’s advertising services grew by 250 percent
  • The number of men looking for Ukrainian women for sex on the Internet has sharply increased, he said at a virtual conference.

The Irish escort website encouraged men to pay for sex with Ukrainian women fleeing Vladimir Putin’s invasion and to realize their “fantasies inspired by war.”

A European anti-trafficking expert warned on Thursday that the Irish sex trade had already responded to the refugee crisis, which had led to rising demand from men trying to “identify and have sex” with evacuees.

As an example of growing demand, the site was cited by the representative of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Valiant Richie.

“We already see [sex work] He said the market is responding to the refugee crisis. “For example, one of Ireland’s largest escort sites offered men the opportunity to pursue their ‘fantasies inspired by war’ with Ukrainian women.”

Mr Richie said the same escort website had reported that since the start of the war, the number of Ukrainian women using it to advertise services had increased by 250 per cent.

The vast majority of people who have fled Ukraine since the invasion on February 24 were women. According to the martial law in the country, men between the ages of 18 and 60 had to stay and fight.

The website’s existence was revealed during a digital event of the National Women’s Council on Thursday, during which Richie said there was a “significant surge” in the use of search terms on the Internet, which are “related to buying sex from Ukrainian women.”

The anti-trafficking coordinator said that in some countries there is a 600 percent surge in such search terms, according to the Irish Independent.

“In other words, one of the earliest and most measurable reactions in Europe to the crisis was men’s attempts to identify and have sex with women and girls fleeing conflict,” Richie said.

“The influx of vulnerable women and girls into Western Europe has led to an immediate increase in men’s interest in their exploitation.”

He said the influx of evacuees from Ukraine, combined with increasing demand for men looking for Ukrainian sex workers, has opened the door for sex traffickers who want to expose the crisis.

Fulfilling demand, he said, was the most effective way to combat human trafficking.

“Since the beginning of the war, there has been a huge surge in demand, which will serve as a strong incentive for traffickers to recruit and use Ukrainian women on a large scale,” he said at the event.

“Addressing demand today is the greatest tool we have to combat human trafficking to prevent the current humanitarian crisis from turning into traffic.”

Richie was joined at the event by several other speakers who called on the Irish government to protect women and children fleeing the war.

Mr Richie said at the event on Thursday that the escort's website had reported that since the start of the war, the number of Ukrainian women using it to advertise services had increased by 250 per cent.  In the photo: Ukrainians evacuated near the train in Lviv on March 5, 2022

Coordinator of Beyond Exploitation (Irish civil society campaign for equality and freedom from sexual exploitation) Mia de Faoit said that doing so much would be a top priority for the Irish government as the war continues for the fourth month.

“This is an urgent issue, women and girls are already disappearing into the hands of traffickers, many women have already been raped by soldiers or sexually exploited by shoppers,” she said.

“We urgently need to take all necessary protective measures, and those tasked with meeting demand must have the resources and support.”

In April, the United Nations warned that the evacuation crisis would increase the prevalence of trafficking for sexual purposes, and traffickers would take advantage of the vulnerability of women who are desperately fleeing the country.

Human rights organizations also warn about the risks posed by schemes under which citizens take fleeing Ukrainians to their homes.
