To support Ukrainian civil society in the efficient oversight of reconstruction funding allocation, the Supervising and Monitoring Ukraine’s Reconstruction Funds (SMURF) project is bringing a cohort of leading Ukrainian anti-corruption activists and investigative journalists to London.

Join us for a discussion moderated by journalist Oliver Bullough, featuring leading investigative journalists and activists from Ukrainian civil society. Coffee and croissants will be served before we have the opportunity to hear on-the-ground stories from Ukraine.

The Supervising and Monitoring Ukraine’s Reconstruction Funds (SMURF) project has been launched by RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies and RUSI Europe. The project will bring together a cohort of leading Ukrainian anti-corruption activists, including members of the RISE Ukraine coalition and the BRDO think tank, as well as investigative journalists from OCCRP and n-ost for a study tour in Brussels and London. The cohort members will meet policymakers, civil society activists, and journalists to discuss challenges and best practices in financial crime investigation.
