Law enforcement and regulatory authorities in Ukraine recently underwent advanced training in probing financial crimes related to cryptocurrencies and digital assets.

This specialized training took place in Vienna from November 14th to 17th, with 14 Ukrainian officials participating.

The program, organized by the OSCE Co-ordinator of Economic and Environmental Activities and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, equipped participants with in-depth knowledge for tracking criminal transactions across different blockchains and introduced them to specialized analytical software.

“With the growing use of virtual assets and cryptocurrencies in Ukraine, there is a pressing need to strengthen the capacity of law enforcement and supervisory bodies. This is essential for effective investigations, enhancing Ukraine's resilience against money laundering and other financial crimes,” said Acting Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental activities.
