Two women hostages were released in Ryazan district.
They had been kept in a garage basement for more than three years, reports RIA “Novosti”. The news agency received this news by phone from a source in the Department of Internal Affairs of Russian town of Ryazan.
“Local police arrested a worker of the auto-conveyer factory in the town of Skopina. On September 30, 2000, the man had kidnapped two students: one from Professional-technical college, another one from an evening school and an unemployed lady. He had threatened to kill them if they didn’t obey. Up until recently, he had held them in his garage basement and used them as his sex slaves,” a police official reported to RIA “Novosti”.
The victims have been released. During three and a half years, they had been considered missing.
The victims – two girls ages 21 and 18 – are now in hospital. One of them is pregnant. In the course of those several years of captivity, the young lady had already given birth twice, Vesti.Ru reports.
Both of her kids remain in foster care.
The criminal was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping (article 126 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). It has already been determined that the man “had been suffering from mental and sexual disorders,” reports “Utro.ru”.

It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
