The strategy seeks to raise awareness of trafficking, improve identification and support for victims, increase prevention and intensify the police and judicial response, according to a European Commission statement released on Wednesday by the Europa Press agency.

The policy also aims to strengthen overall cooperation at both EU and non-EU levels, especially with Moldova and Ukraine.

More than 5.4 million people have arrived in EU countries since the outbreak of the confrontation in Ukraine since May 6, according to data cited by the European executive.

Most of the people fleeing Ukraine are women and children, and among the latter more than 13,000 are unaccompanied or separated minors have been registered so far, the Commission’s statement adds.

EU-wide data show that women and children are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking, as 75 percent of all victims in the EU are women and girls.
