The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the international organization combating money laundering and terrorist financing, has removed Ukraine from the list of countries to be monitored by the organization. Such a decision was taken after a meeting of the organization, which was held in Paris on October 27-28, according to FATF's website.

"The FATF welcomes Ukraine’s significant progress in improving its AML/CFT regime and notes that Ukraine has largely met its commitments in its Action Plan regarding the strategic deficiencies that the FATF had identified in February 2010. Ukraine is therefore no longer subject to FATF’s monitoring under its on-going global AML/CFT compliance process," the report reads.

According to the document, Ukraine will work with MONEYVAL as it continues to address the full range of AML/CFT issues identified in its mutual evaluation report, and further strengthen its AML/CFT regime.

Commenting on the FATF decision, deputy head of the President's Administration Iryna Akymova told a briefing that it is a signal to the world financial system on that Ukraine does not bear any financial risks.  According to her, EU latest statements on free trade area with Ukraine mean that the trust in Ukraine is growing.
