Ukraine law enforcement officials have received training in advanced techniques and tools to investigate crypto crimes.
Due to the sophistication of crypto technology, certain criminals use it for illicit transactions. Hence, law enforcement officials must be equipped with the knowledge to track the funds and control financial crimes through cryptocurrency.
The Office of the Coordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities (OCEEA) organized the course. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) also partnered with the OCEEA to train Ukrainian officers on tackling crypto crimes. Ralf Ernst, acting coordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities, said:
“This is the second training on investigation of virtual assets for Ukrainian officials, and the OSCE will continue to support Ukraine’s efforts to combat money laundering, particularly through virtual assets and cryptocurrencies.”
As of August 2023, Ukraine has approximately 3.43 million crypto users. Statista forecasts crypto users to grow to 5.36 million by 2027.
