A sad story of pedophilia on how disgusting images fed the web

Pierluigi Paganini February 10, 2020

The journalist Livio Varriale sheds the light on a story about pedophilia that starts from afar and still today finds its roots in the darker side of the internet.

Today, I’m going to tell you a horrible story that dwells on the dark web, a story about pedophilia that starts from afar and still today finds its roots in the darker side of the internet.

So let’s come to a premise, in the nineties, in a city of Ukraine, a photographic studio was born, it was focused on innocent but at the same time forbidden sites. The story passed over in silence and there are rare traces online. The drama is that on the dark side of the Internet there are ogres that abuse children. This is the story of the LS-Studios, by Alexander Chursin, who had to close his business in 2004 after an FBI raid.

The chronicle tells us that 1500 models, aged between 7 and 14 years, posed for this agency, which fed adult public sites with captivating photos where nudity was not always the height of lust and there were no sexual acts immortalized in the shots.

According to an OSINT research carried out by Matricedigitale, the questionable content is still available online, in the clear web it is possible to find them and it is possible to reach these images with simple searches.

A Twitter user has publicly reported us three links with domains, one of them even .org, which hosts the photos of Ls-Studios. The thing, unfortunately, even more, disgusting is that on Twitter there are still many active links to directories and torrents where you can download GB of images.

Unfortunatelly, it is quite simple to find on social networks like Twitter the links to repositories that host archives of child pornography images

As many as 60 links are still active in 2019, we found several links published via Twitter profiles that explicitly refer to LSMODELS LSSTUDIOS with Tweets written in different idioms, including English, Russian, and Japanese

In conclusion, more than 600,000 photos hosted in the dark web represent a reservoir of pleasure for ogres, in many cases they are available for free, for all those who are attracted to children, but who despise child pornography at the same time. Over time, the models in the pictures have grown up, but their faces have been immortalized and the shots of them still make them legends in the most horrendous part of the internet.

Additional information about the investigation conducted by L Varriare are available at the following links (English, Italian, and Russian):
