Props to Lyudmila Putin

Here's a little known fact: Lyudmila Putin, yes that Lyudmila, is an Honorary Board Member of the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Here's a wider known, and sad fact: Russians are frequent victims of human trafficking. According to the UN's most recent report on the subject, Russians accounted for an alarmingly large number of human trafficking cases in:

Spain: 347
Germany: 182
Turkey: 157
Netherlands: 24
Poland: 12
Italy: 8
Bosnia: 5
Cyprus: 5

Keep up the good work Lyudmila!

Shame on you, Spain.

Not gonna lie. Putin looks pretty hot in that picture. Lucky Lyudmila.

Lol. What is it with you and Putin?

I'm a lady with eyes and a heart. That's my deal with Putin.

Putin has one of the most unattractive smiles ever. If he'd remain poker faced, he'd be nice looking. I think he's aware of this because he rarely smiles broadly.

Thanks for sharing the report. I found it alarming that 86% of people convicted of trafficking in Georgia and Azerbaijan are women. What the heck?

Pirates(and)Diplomats said...

@Phatima, agreed. That was an eye-opener.

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on
your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
