    Russia - Sex Slaves freed after 3 years of Captivity!

    MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- Police freed two young women who had been kept in an underground bunker as sex slaves for more than three years, during which time one of them gave birth twice and became pregnant a third time, Russian news reports said Thursday.

    The women, now 21 and 17, disappeared in September 2000 after going to a discotheque in Ryazan, 125 miles southeast of Moscow, the reports said. The search for them was called off after a few months and the young women, who were identified only as Lena and Katya, were presumed dead.

    They were found by police on Tuesday in a bunker constructed under a garage and their alleged captor was arrested and charged with kidnapping, newspaper and television reports said. Lena, the 21-year-old, is eight months pregnant, the reports said.

    According to the newspaper Kommersant, the pair described how a man and woman had invited them to drink vodka and go for a drive. They said they fell asleep and later woke up in a dark room furnished with two beds and a table, Kommersant said.

    Lena and Katya said they were not beaten but were repeatedly raped by their captor, who reports identified as 53-year-old Viktor Mokhov.

    Lena gave birth to two boys during her captivity; the infants were abandoned at the doorstep of an orphanage, Ryazan police chief Vladimir Tsypkov told state-run Rossiya television.

    At one point, Lena managed to scribble a note asking for help and stuck it inside one of the children's diapers, but Mokhov found it, according to Kommersant.

    What a horror! But thank God they had each other. Going through that alone would probably break someone. I hope they are able to heal and recover and get a chance to build a better life.

    ONe other good note, at least the babies weren't killed. What a horrible story. People are sure sick. Doesn't matter where they are, does it?
