Russia ranked 49th on world slavery ranking

Russia took the 49th position in the ranking of world slavery. The list, which included 162 countries, was made by Australian organization Walk Free Foundation.

In Russia, the number of enslaved people ranges from 490 to 540 thousand, researchers said. The number is not large when compared to the number of the Russian population. However, Russia is ranked sixth on the absolute number of enslaved people.

The first place on the list belongs to Mauritania. The situation with slavery is especially serious in Haiti, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Moldova, Benin, Cote D'Ivoire, the Gambia and Gabon.

The UK, Ireland and Iceland are least susceptible to slavery. These countries shared the 160th place.
