“Without prejudice to our ongoing fight against sexual exploitation, I believe it is important to act specifically in areas where prostitution is practiced,” Montero said.

In her letter, the Minister expressed her "deep concern" about the outbreak of Covid-19 in brothels, which is a "particularly serious" problem, and asked the autonomy to offer the girls who work there "worthy alternatives."

As we reported before, the number of people infected with Covid-19 in Ukraine is already bigger than 100,000

"100,643 lab-confirmed cases in Ukraine on August 21, 2,207 of those lethal. 51,078 patients recovered. 2,106 new cases were observed over 24 hours", the message says.
