Share

In 2006 and 2012, the US State Department published a report on human trafficking around the world.  The report designates each country as a country of origin, transit or destination.  Each country also recieves a rating based on the level of trafficking in the country and what the government is doing to combat human trafficking. 

2012 Report

Secretary of State Clinton says that, "this report tells us that we are making a lot of progress. Twenty-nine countries were upgraded from a lower tier to a higher one, which means that their governments are taking the right steps. This could mean enacting strong laws, stepping up their investigations and prosecutions, or simply laying out a roadmap of steps they will take to respond."

2006 Report

Russia was rated one of the worst countries in terms of human trafficking, not only because of the proliferation of human trafficking but also because the government has taken very few steps in recent years to curb human trafficking or to investigate cases of trafficking.  According to the report, "Russia is placed on Tier 2 Watch List for a third consecutive year for its continued failure to show evidence of increasing efforts to combat trafficking, particularly in the area of victim protection and assistance" (Trafficking in Persons Report, Part IV, para. 13).
