Ukraine is a member of MONEYVAL since 1997. The aim of MONEYVAL is to ensure that its member states have in place effective systems to counter money laundering and terrorist financing and comply with the relevant international standards in this matter. MONEYVAL carries out mutual evaluations of all relevant international standards in legal, financial and law enforcement spheres in its member states. MONEYVAL Mutual Evaluation Reports contain detailed recommendations on increasing the effectiveness of the AML/CFT systems, as well as capabilities of states to ensure international cooperation in these spheres.
In March-April, 2017 the MONEYVAL on-site visit within the 5th round of mutual evaluations have been conducted in Ukraine.
