Ukraine wants global financial crime watchdog to expel Russia

Ukraine’s central bank chief stated last Friday (14 Oct) that he would ask the Financial Action Task Force, a global financial crime watchdog to expel Russia from its invasion of Ukraine.

Andriy Pyshnyi (a new central bank governor) stated on Facebook that he would write to the FATF asking for the bank’s permission before the organisation’s plenary session 18-21 Oct.

Russia is currently a FATF Member. Ukraine is not a member at the moment.

Pyshnyi stated that Russia had “created serious risks to the security and integrity of the world’s financial system” and demanded that Moscow pays “the price” in return for its invasion of Ukraine.


Russia refers its actions in Ukraine to “special military operations” that demilitarize and “denazify Russia.
