Episode 44: Ukraine’s Reconstruction: Ensuring Transparency

Transparency will be key to managing Ukraine's reconstruction, both in ensuring the efficient use of resources and in maintaining the trust of the international community. CFCS Director Tom Keatinge joins Oleksii Dorohan, CEO of the Better Regulation Delivery Office – a leading Ukrainian think tank – to discuss why Ukraine must establish a strong anti-money laundering architecture, and to outline the goals of our joint project, Supervising and Monitoring Ukraine’s Reconstruction Funds (SMURF), which empowers Ukrainian civil society and journalists in this effort.
