SUMMARY:Defendant Victor Nikolayevich Virchenko is a Russian national who was involved in a human trafficking scheme. Defendant Virckenko, along with his co-defendants Pavel Agafonov, a naturalized US citizen, and Tony Kennard, a US citizen, was trafficking women and minor girls from Russia into Alaska to dance nude in strip clubs. The victims, nine young female Russian folk dancers, were told they would be participating in folk shows across the US. When they arrived in the US, however, Defendants took their passports and return tickets and forced them to dance nude at strip clubs. The Russian victims were brought into the US in December 2000 and were freed by the INS in January 2001. Defendant Virchenko was arrested at the Anchorage International Airport.
