Russian law enforcement claims to have blocked a sick website renting out children as young as five to paedophiles.
The site masqueraded as a rental site for elite brand children clothing shown in photographs being worn by models as young as five.
Media reports in Moscow say it was offering underage boys and girls to sex perverts for an hourly rate of up to £1,200.
The site was blocked by Russian law enforcement and an investigation is now underway into who was behind the ‘paedophile prostitution ring’.
One ‘model’ pictured was named Oksana and said to be eight years old.
One hour’s rental was priced at 35,000 roubles – or £410.
The wording suggested this price was for the clothes – but the innuendo indicated it was for the child.
In the same way, another ‘model’ named Polina, aged five, was priced at 100,000 roubles, or £1,200.
A picture showing a six year old boy, Lev, put the cost of his clothing at 40,000 roubles – or £470.
A seven year old called Denis had the same price for one hour’s rental.
Yulia Ivanova, spokeswoman for the Russian Investigative Committee, said: ‘According to the media, the creators of the website advertising clothing for children were in fact making profit…. offering services for renting out children for prostitution’.
The website ‘indicated the the hourly cost of rent and also offered a delivery service outside Moscow’.
While the site showed branded kid’s clothing, reports said this was a mask for advertising children for sex.
‘Everything suggested child prostitution,’ said one media report.
Children as young as five featured on the site ostensibly as ‘models’ but were actually advertised as being ‘available for rent’
‘Photos of children, their ages and names, prices, detailed information about ‘delivery’ of the product and opportunities to order a comfortable place for using the product – (these were) unambiguous references.
‘Payment for services could be made only with a cryptocurrency.’
Deals were negotiated by a web messenger known for its secrecy.
‘There was also a photo of an absolutely naked child on a beach holiday,’ said the report.
360TV reported that the service was created for Muscovites.
The organisers were ‘delivering little victims of violence in a car – and taking them back in the same car’.
Children could be delivered outside the Russian capital ‘for an additional payment’.
One page on the site – before it was blocked – offered ‘delivery across Moscow and Moscow region around the clock with no days off.
‘We deliver rented clothing in our own transport that we use to take [it] back.
‘If you have no opportunity to use rented product at your (home), we have our own comfortable spaces in Moscow.’
The site – now blocked – contained the name cpidzhak – with the letters ‘cp’ seen as standing for ‘child porn’.
Reports said two grotesque ‘references’ supposedly from clients made clear beyond all doubt that the site was offering child sex.
One – form a user called ‘connoisseur’, stated: ‘What is offered by cpidzhak website is a lot more pleasant than any CP video or photo!
‘Trust me! It’s like heroin!
‘Now you don’t need to watch children porn, or children porn, or CP, just choose the ‘product’ in the shop’s catalogue and contact managers through the website or (web messenger).’
The revolting post continued: ‘If you use the services, unforgettable joy not compatible to anything else is awaiting for you!’
Another ‘reference’ claimed ‘everything was to top standard’.
‘I had unforgettable time and I wanted to express my sincere gratitude.’
