2015 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Minimal Advancement

Note: Due to changes in the trade preferential status of Russia in 2015, ILAB conducted no further reports on the worst forms of child labor in Russia covering years after 2014. To learn more about our mandates, please visit: https://www.dol.gov/ilab/about/laws/#tda 

In 2014, the Russian Federation made a minimal advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The Government committed to assessing and improving working conditions in its 2014 Employment Plan. The Government continued the implementation of a social protection mechanism defined by the Social Contract law to financially support vulnerable citizens, including child trafficking victims. The Government also continued support of the Russian Children in Need Fund, which aims to rehabilitate disadvantaged and homeless children. However, children in Russia are engaged in child labor, including in work on the street, and in the worst forms of child labor, including being used in the production of pornography. Laws do not prohibit possession of child pornography or benefiting from its proceeds. In addition, Russia continues to lack a mechanism to coordinate nationwide efforts to combat the worst forms of child labor, and it has no social programs specifically targeting this goal.
