The State Financial Monitoring Service of Ukraine (hereinafter – the SFMS) has prepared the Glossary to improve the activities in the area of prevention and counteraction to legalization (laundering) of criminal proceeds, terrorist financing, financing of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and corruption.
The Glossary is the first, since the independence of Ukraine, a systematic publication that combines terms and concepts in anti-legalization and anti-corruption spheres. This includes, in particular, about 3000 terms contained in international documents, codes and laws of Ukraine, by-laws of Ukraine, scientific and informational literature.
The publication is intended for the widest range of specialists, but above all for those, who deal with issues of financial monitoring and fighting corruption in their professional activities – employees of financial monitoring entities and anti-corruption sphere, law enforcement bodies, judges, public associations, scientists and students studying financial disciplines, as well as practicing lawyers.
The authoritative researchers specializing in various branches of law, as well as specialists of the SFMS, were involved in the preparation of the Glossary.
We would like to emphasize that the Glossary was prepared with the assistance of the OSCE Project Co-ordinator in Ukraine, which provides technical support and actively participates in the development of the AML/CFT system. The long-term experience of cooperation between the OSCE Project Coordinator and the SFMS shows the high level of relationships and partnership effectiveness.
Commenting on the posted publication, the Head of the SFMS Igor Cherkaskyi noted that the coordination and explanatory work provided by the SFMS, including with the support of the OSCE Project Co-ordinator in Ukraine, is a component of minimizing national risks in the AML/CFT area.
The Glossary is available on the official SFMS’s website (www.sdfm.gov.ua) in the section "Legal framework/Comments".
