    News
    BRAMA has chosen to take a proactive stance vis-a-vis select issues that face Ukraine today. This site has long been devoted to the issues surrounding the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster. More recently, a situation exacerbated by the deteriorating economic conditions in Ukraine has been brought to light -- the trafficking of young Ukrainian women in sexual slavery. We dedicate this section to the young women of Ukraine in the hopes that information found here will help alter the paths taken by those who innocently, or without a full understanding of the realities of the situation, are drawn into criminally driven servitude.
