The FM spokesman Oleh Voloshyn refused to comment on the decision of the U.S. Court's ruling finding guilty two Ukrainians and sentencing them to prison for human trafficking, ForUm correspondent reports.

"We do not comment on the decisions of the court. The American party gave enough evidences that people were engaged in a very shameful business," he said.

According to him, the Ukrainians were engaged in human trafficking with further labor or sexual exploitation.

"But still they (the convicts - Ed.) are our citizens. We will look after that their rights are not violated in the framework of international agreements. But in this case everything is clear - about 30 Ukrainians suffered in this case," the spokesman emphasized.

Voloshyn also noted that it is not for the first that Ukrainians organize a mafia system abroad.
"This is one of the reasons for complicated relations with a number of other countries, such as the Czech Republic. The Ukrainian gangs have already become a legend there," he said.

In the case of "Botsvinyuks family", five brothers appear. O. Botsvinyuk was arrested in Berlin and extradited to the United States. 35-year-old Stephan was arrested in Southern California, U.S. Three other brothers had left the United States in 2007.
