of them. r t applies here. escort agencies popular among wealthy russians have come under attack by activists claiming the business is dangerous for the women involved they believe the women who are paid to mix in high society often face sexual abuse and violence. single and in need of beautiful company events you need to attend as a couple but you don't have your plus one there are people willing to help with that the beauty of the escort business is they provide you with a choice of glamorous educated multilingual women will be more than happy to grace your side at any important event but many believe this business is not just skin deep. the girls who are engaged in these so-called escort services get sexually abused a lot more often than prostitutes because no one tells them they will have to perform sexual favors or who they will be passed on to sometimes the client who books an
4:16 am
escort will simply bring the girl to use own clients who abuse her. however women who are employed by escort services seem keen to disprove this notion the limb is an escort and she does not worry about her safety. suit that's not a look this is the world we make and we show the mosque girls are educated attractive and teligent and people enjoy our company but that hasn't been a time when i felt scared and concerned about my safety lines up and if the girl feels unsafe she can always leave some not. still she says she wouldn't tell her boyfriend about her chosen profession because too often it is confused with prostitution and many say with good reason. all kinds of support for business meetings claims the website of one escort agency but the pictures that accompany the statement certainly don't show any support and hint at

4:18 am
do a very unpleasant accident can happen like a hit and run boom and your dad. according to complain is the one thing these girls cannot afford to do. i remember a girl who told the truth about her life in a t.v. interview about how they get raped beaten forced to hand over all their money and the people that edited the documentary didn't change her voice or cover her face or anything a few days after the documentary aired she was found killed so the glamour and the money are very real but the danger is even more so i guess readers are of r t moscow. the record hot weather has left people across russia sizzling in what is the hottest july in the country for more than a century but as many flocked to water to cool off that it sees ministries also reporting a dramatic increase in number of people drowning in the last week alone will take
