A SEX trafficker has been caught trying to sell a Russian schoolgirl’s virginity online in a vile plot to turn her into a sex slave.
The sixteen-year-old girl, named only as Vika, believed she was selling her virginity for £4,000 in a one night stand.
She had been lured online by the slave trader’s accomplice called Yury who allegedly groomed her into believing she could sell her virginity for $5,000 US dollars (£4,000).
The human trafficker instead sought a male buyer to keep her as a full-time slave and “do anything he wanted with her”.
Russian police say they staged a sting operation in Moscow to protect the girl who is underage in Russian law.
In social media chats, he convinced her that he knew a man who would pay her, and that it would be safe for her.
The girl – from the provincial Chuvashia region of Russia – travelled to Moscow believing Yury’s accomplice called Said, 32, had arranged the businessman client who would pay to be her first sexual partner.
The girl admitted she had hidden her plan from her mother and other relatives.
At the meeting, Said allegedly demanded a total of half a million roubles – or £6,350 from the “businessman”, in fact a detective posing as buyer.
Said was also fully aware that after the payment Vika … would be owned by the buyer who could dispose of her destiny and life in any way.”
A law enforcement source told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper: “The 32-year-old man, born in Uzbekistan and now living in Chelyabinsk region, did not suspect a sting operation.
“He was entirely sure that he was seeing the buyer he had sought for the 16-year-old girl.
“Said was also fully aware that after the payment Vika, an 11th year school student, would be owned by the buyer who could dispose of her destiny and life in any way.
“This was discussed by Said before the deal.”
After the money was handed over, Said was detained.
He had not intended to give her any money, it is alleged.
A video shows him in handcuffs confessing that he intended the sell the schoolgirl for half a million roubles.
He claimed the have met her via a Russian social media network.
The girl was taken to a police station and later to a “medical facility” where psychologists are helping her “get back to a normal life”.

The accomplice Yury – who had posed as a family man – is still believed to be at liberty.
An acquaintance of the girl’s said she had often received flattering comments from men and her pictures showed she had an “outstanding appearance”.
