Ukrainian human trafficking ring with newborns exposed
A Czech media portal has uncovered further mafia structures linked to Ukraine. This case is about human trafficking of newborns and outright surrogacy slavery. At least 30 babies have been illegally sold to foreigners in the Czech Republic since 2019 after they were born in Prague by Ukrainian surrogate mothers.

The trail was uncovered by Czech outlet Seznam Zprávy leading to one of the centers of the surrogacy industry, Kharkiv, Ukraine, as well as to the Feskov-Human Reproduction Group agency, which has branches in Prague and Kiev. The operator of the clinic, Alexander Feskov, has had to answer for human trafficking there since last year.
Six employees of the baby farm are said to have earned 1,2 million euros from the trade in unborn and newborn babies. Prague, according to criminologists, is a sort of logistical center for the entire business.
Ever since Asian countries banned commercial surrogate motherhood in 2015, exposing the exploitation of the system by foreigners and the abuse by intermediary agencies, the Ukrainian surrogacy industry has been thriving. According to the Medical and Reproductive Law Center in Kiev, in 2019 hundreds of children were born via surrogate motherhood. Ukraine is one of the few countries where surrogate motherhood is legal and commercial.
Customers as so-called contract parents were able to save themselves the long journey to pick up the babies in the Ukraine. In this way, stricter laws in the EU area could be circumvented.
Although Ukrainian law only allowed infertile and married couples to use surrogacy, according to Seznam Správy, Feskov’s clientele also included single men who wanted to have children as well as homosexual couples from all over the world.
Victims were not only the babies but also the Ukrainian surrogate mothers who then gave birth to their children in the Czech Republic. They were forced to pose as biological mothers after having to give up their parental rights in favor of foreigners. The costs for a “pick-up-ready” child amounted to 60 000 to 70 000 euros. The surrogate mother only received around 10 000 euros, which is about three times the amount of an average Ukrainian annual salary.
The Czech National Center Against Organized Crime (NCOZ) – with the support of police authorities in Ukraine, Great Britain and Sweden – documented cases of babies being sold via Prague to Norway, Germany, Greece, Bulgaria, Spain and the US.
Vienna Institute of Medical Anthropology and Bioethics (IMABE) director Susanne Kummer highlighted the same worrying development in Germany, in an interview with Austrian Kronen Zeitung where the FDP, SPD and Greens are currently exploring options to legalize egg donation and “altruistic” surrogacy.
What is particularly frightening is that it was never checked who had “ordered” the babies, whether the clients could properly care for a newborn, or whether they could possibly even pose a danger to the child.
Czech child protection a sham
Zdenek Kapitán, director of the Office for International Child Protection in the Czech Republic, citing official figures, said the vast majority of the children were boys of up to five years old. He admitted that they had no idea why this was the case and said he could only “speculate” on the reasons.
In fact, when cornered, Kapitán, the “expert” on how Czech laws deal with surrogate motherhood – that is, for situations where a foreign woman carries the embryo of biological parents who cannot have offspring in the normal way – promised to collaborate with the police. However, the collaboration ended in failure. “He didn’t deliver any documents and then he stopped communicating with us completely,” said state attorney Martina Adámková, who oversees the case.
His office apparently has detailed information from the registers that described the trade in children. Czech authorities have been equally slow in dealing with the scourge.
Police detectives approached the Ministry of Health, which claimed that surrogate motherhood and child trafficking did not fall under its purview at all. Ministry officials maintained that this was a problem for the Ministry of Justice or the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, which, by the way, the police had also approached to seek redress.
The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs then pointed to the Ministry of the Interior to apply the law on surrogacy.
Meanwhile, the Feskov network had totally dispensed with the strict requirements that are usual elsewhere for potential adoptive parents.
Even single men are said to have taken babies into “care” in Prague for a fee. The oldest customer was 66 years old. Some of the customers actually directly stated that they did not know how to take care of the child.
According to the Czech police, despite the Feskov dealer ring that has since been blown, the business of “producing” children in Ukraine continues: wealthy homosexuals clients from all over the world who want children can choose the type of child they want from the Kharkiv clinic catalogue. Even requests for race, skin color, hair tone and even identical twins are taken into account.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
