Trafficking routes from Ukraine

In Ukraine it is the capital, Kiev, that is the main centre for people trafficking.

Victims may be flown directly to the UK, or taken first to the new EU states of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary.

From here, gangs will move them on to the UK via a number of different routes.

Victims from Ukraine are also sent to Turkey and Russia among others, the US State Department says.
