A technical paper on “Assessment of the Response of the Government of Ukraine to the Requirements of FATF Recommendation 8 and Immediate Outcome 10” was finalised in January 2021. The paper is based on a desk review of legislation, existing approaches to identification and assessment of terrorist financing risks associated with the non-profit organisations’ (NPO) sector, supplemented by primary fact-finding through consultations by videoconference with representatives of relevant national authorities and the NPO sector. It provides an in-depth review of the terrorist financing risks associated with the NPO sector in Ukraine, as well as recommendations on mitigation measures for national stakeholders.

This technical paper was developed as part of the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) II Project on “Strengthening measures to counter money laundering and financing of terrorism in Ukraine”, co-funded by the EU and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.
