A Ukrainian woman allegedly filmed herself sexually abusing her four-year-old son before selling the videos for­­ 3,000 Ukrainian hryvnias ($112) per clip.

The 26-year-old woman was arrested earlier this week after cyber police searched her flat in Vinnytsia, Ukraine, and found the videos on her computers. She allegedly had pornographic images with her son, which she sold on the Dark Web. The woman had allegedly made 30 videos and got 90,000 Ukrainian hryvnias after she sold the clips on the Dark Web. 

At the time of the police raid, the woman reportedly confessed to making and selling the videos. She claimed that a young woman had approached her via email and offered a job. “I had to search online for children who would be willing to take part in (child abuse) shooting for money. I was supposed to film the children at their home while their parents were away or invite them to my place. Also, I had to look for parents who would not mind to let their children be filmed in (child abuse) clips for money. Then she offered me to try it with my son, saying that there is nothing to be afraid of and I agreed,” she confessed.

“Police gathered evidence against a 26-year-old resident of Vinnytsia who filmed sexual (abuse) with her four-year-old son for a long time. The suspect had been selling the footage to foreign clients. For each clip she got 3000 hryvnias. Earlier the mother was earning a living by taking part in adult porn and selling it. Then she was offered more money for filming and selling sexual (abuse) with her son and agreed,” a police spokesperson said. The woman’s computer was taken by the police for further investigation.

She had allegedly placed toys as background for her videos and in some of them even dressed up in lingerie. The woman’s name was not revealed to protect the identity of the victim.

The woman was taken into police custody while her son was removed from her custody and is being given counselling. Police said that he will be sent to an orphanage soon. She was charged with rape, sexual corruption of minors, production and distribution of pornographic materials. She faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty.

In August 2016, a woman from Wales was jailed for five years after she was arrested for filming herself having sex with her 14-year-old son. She was also accused of storing indecent images of her three-year-old daughter. The woman was allegedly told by her relative in Pakistan to create the indecent material. She admitted to six counts of incestuous act, storing child pornography images as well as circulating them. She was registered on the sex offenders list for life.

In 2018, an Australian woman was sentenced to to at least 17 years in prison after she was found guilty of performing sex acts with her young children and filming it. The woman was found guilty of producing and sharing child pornography over a two-year period. The 31-year-old woman was charged with sexually abusing her son and two daughters to please men she met online. She was also charged with child abuse after it was revealed that she invited a man to her house who sexually abused one of her daughters.
