Zionist mafia bands kidnap every year more than 10,000 women and young girls in Russia and transfer them to the Zionist settled areas of the 1948 occupied Palestine for abuses and slavery.
Zionist mafia bands who have great influence in Russia promise the Russian women and girls about high-pay jobs in the occupied areas and take them out of Russia via this seducive promise.
These miserable women are transfered either via faked marriage companies to Tal Abib (dubbed by the Zionist regime as Tel Aviv after 1948 usurpe) or illegally through deserts of Egypt on foot.
Witnesses say a lot of these unaware girls can't bear the harshness of drought Egypt's Sina Desert and die, while those who reach the destination half-dead are abused and tortured by the Zionist bands or in better words the real highwaymen of the 21st century.
They are then recruitted for most indecent works without receiving anything.
Zionist dealers pocket from 4,000 to 10,000 dollars for every of the so called woman huntings.
Shocking reports say that the sole way of rescue for these miserable women is to pay 50,000 dollars in cash to their criminal owners.
"If these women flee or refer to the police, they will be killed by the Zionists or will be totally handicapped for the rest of their life in jail in order that others take some lessons", the reports added.
