Full Answer

Besides LS Land, other LS Studio collections included LS Island, LS Dreams, LS Stars, LS Barbie and LS Fantasy. The studio recruited girls between the ages of 8 to 16 through ads on TV and in newspapers. Operating mainly in the cities of Kharkov, Kiev and Simferopol, the studio deceived the parents of the children by posing as a legitimate modeling agency. Photographers then took pictures of the children in custom-tailored clothing, in the nude and in suggestive poses. Altogether, about 1,500 minor children were involved.

In July 2004, the crime investigation department of the ministry of the interior of Ukraine conducted the raid after a joint investigation with Interpol. The police confiscated computers, video equipment, images of the children and financial documents. The frozen bank accounts of the agency totaled hundreds of thousands of dollars. According to a report by the U.S. Department of State in 2005, a significant portion of Internet child pornography worldwide came from Ukraine.
