President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych signed into law the bill on prevention of laundering of proceeds of crime, adopted by Parliament on May 18 in a new wording, the press office of the head of state reported.

The document is aimed at protecting the rights and lawful interests of citizens, society and the state by determining the legal mechanism for combating "dirty" money laundering and terrorism financing.

The law establishes new signs, according to which financial transactions are subject to financial monitoring. In particular, the amount from which financial transactions will be subject to compulsory financial monitoring increased from 80 to 150 thousand UAH (1 USD - 7.93 UAH).

The document also extended the list of subjects of primary financial monitoring with lawyers, attorneys, notaries, auditors and real estate developers.

Additionally, it specifies requirements to the monitoring of operations carried out by foreign political figures.

The adoption of this law is absolutely necessary for Ukraine, especially on the eve of important meetings at FATF.

June 21-25, 2010, a plenary meeting will be held at FATF to consider the report of the European Control Group regarding Ukraine.
