Ukrainian govt agency NABU says cryptocurrencies are tools of ‘modern’ corruption

Ukraine’s anti-corruption bureau officially announced that it is ready to take enforcement action against the crypto Money launderers.

Ukraine is a highly crypto-friendly zone, since Feb 2022. As we know that Ukraine suffered huge missile attacks from the Russian military, over their geopolitical conflict. During the high-level war activities, Ukraine grabbed more than $100 million worth of crypto assets donation from the crypto community. Even Russian-origin Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin donated & supported Ukraine, against his native country. 

Around a few weeks ago, many media reports confirmed that Ukrainian agencies are getting training from the US agencies to fight against the crypto crimes in the country. 

Recently Ukraine’s National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) released official information on this matter and confirmed that the agency is getting training as well as funding support from the US State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs. 

By getting training & funding, the NABU agency will unmask & catch all those bad actors, which are laundering money with the help of cryptocurrencies. 

At present, Ukraine’s 250 officials are studying cryptocurrencies to become the best crypto detectives under the leadership & of the US intelligence agency.

The NABU stated:

“This is the largest training course in the history of the bureau.”

Around a month ago, the American agencies confirmed that they were assisting Ukrainian agencies via the crypto analytic platform Chainalysis to track & ban Russian-linked crypto activities.

It is worth it to note that Ukrainian agencies never talked about any kind of crypto ban ideas, thanks to the situations which showed the anti-war friendly face of the crypto sector.
