There seem to be no secret of Ukraine's 'dark past' when it comes to the worst imaginable crimes related to Human Trafficking, Corruption and even Organ Harvesting from new born babies. This has also been well documented by multiple mainstream media articles through the past couple decades. Ironically, today there is complete silence in mainstream media regarding these horrific matters.
Here is a fraction of the findings:
In January 2016, Newsweek reported:
Ukraine remains one of Europe's most notorious sources of human trafficking.
Since 1991, more than 160,000 men, women and children have been exploited for labor, sex, forced begging and organ removal, according to a mid-2015 report from the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
Ukraine's Ministry of Social Policy, with recommendations from domestic and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), is currently in the final stages of updating the country's five-year action plan on combating human trafficking.
In June 2015, Huff Post reported:
Ukraine Orphanages Feeder for Child Trafficking.
Governments, faith-based groups and churches, aid agencies and volunteer tourists, who donate cash and goods to orphanages or build and refurbish children's homes and other institutions, may be inadvertently funding human trafficking.
Poor and disabled children, locked away and out of sight from families and their communities, are sitting ducks for traffickers and pedophiles. And nefarious staff are often the beneficiaries of perverse transactions where captive children are the commodity.
In February 2015, The Guardian reported:
Welcome to Ukraine, the most corrupt nation in Europe
While the conflict with Russia heats up in the east, life for most Ukrainians is marred by corruption so endemic that even hospitals appear to be infected. Can anyone clean the country up?
In December 2006, BBC reported:
Ukraine babies in stem cell probe
Healthy new-born babies may have been killed in Ukraine to feed a flourishing international trade in stem cells, evidence obtained by the BBC suggests.
Disturbing video footage of post-mortem examinations on dismembered tiny bodies raises serious questions about what happened to them.
Ukraine has become the self-styled stem cell capital of the world.
There is a trade in stem cells from aborted foetuses, amid unproven claims they can help fight many diseases. But now there are claims that stem cells are also being harvested from live babies.
Wall of silence:
The BBC has spoken to mothers from the city of Kharkiv who say they gave birth to healthy babies, only to have them taken by maternity staff.
In August 2005, BBC reported:
Ukraine baby theft claims probed
Harrowing reports of babies stolen at birth and human organ removal in an Ukrainian city are to be investigated by a top European political body. The Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly is sending a rapporteur to Kharkiv as Ukraine's prosecutors delve into the cases of three mothers.
"People are afraid to even give birth now," Kharkiv campaigner Tatyana Zakharova told the BBC News website.

In June 2015, MintPress News reported:
George Soros 'Puppet Master' Behind Ukrainian Regime, Trails Of Corruption Revealed
Hacked emails reveal Soros’ machinations with the US Government and the officials of the European Union in a scheme where, if he succeeds, he could win billions in the plunder of Ukraine assets. All, of course, would be at the expense of Ukrainian citizens and of EU taxpayers.
Rarely does the world get a true look inside the corrupt world of Western oligarchs and the brazen manipulations they use to enhance their fortunes at the expense of the public good.
The following comes from correspondence of the Hungarian-born billionaire, now naturalized American speculator, George Soros. The hacker group CyberBerkut has published online letters allegedly written by Soros that reveal him not only as puppet master of the US-backed Ukraine regime. They also reveal his machinations with the US Government and the officials of the European Union in a scheme where, if he succeeds, he could win billions in the plunder of Ukraine assets. All, of course, would be at the expense of Ukrainian citizens and of EU taxpayers.
