In 2 years number of child victims of pedophiles in Russia increased 4 times


From 2013 to 2015, the number of registered crimes committed against minors increased by 10,000, and amounted to 96,500. The number of children recognized as victims of sexual violence increased from 1,000 to 3,700.

Human rights activists believe that there are 2 reasons. The first one is a real increase in the number of pedophiles in the country. Also, those who were previously convicted for pedophilia, began returning from prisons. The second reason is more effective work of law enforcement officers, who are now better detect such crimes.

According to experts, he statistics have become more objective. But the catch is that people began to discuss the problem of pedophilia more actively. And this, supposedly, pushes potential offenders to commit a crime.
