The Ukraine Project is one of the six projects which constitute the second phase of the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) programme interventions to support Eastern Partnership countries to counter economic crime.

Compared to previous phase (2015-2018) where technical assistance was provided to prevent and repress corruption in Ukraine, current project aims at strengthening institutional capacities and legislative frameworks by addressing issues raised by MONEYVAL, the Council of Europe monitoring body in the fight against money laundering and financing of terrorism. The project has been designed to contribute to the EU 2020 targets set out in priority area “Strengthening the rule of law and anti-corruption mechanisms,” and is aligned with the cooperation priorities identified in the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and Association Agenda, and Council of Europe Action Plan for Ukraine 2018-2021.

The overall objective of the project is to strengthen legislative and institutional frameworks to counter money laundering and terrorism financing in Ukraine in accordance with Council of Europe and other international standards.
