AntAC runs domestic and international advocacy campaigns calling for Western financial institutions to block suspicious assets of corrupt officials.
With this purpose AntAC gathers already reported in Ukraine facts about ill-gotten funds and alleged criminal corrupt activities, structures these facts in English and emphasizes the role of Western enablers – banks, company service providers, lawyers, accountants, nominal directors – in laundering dirty funds of Ukrainian kleptocrats. These data are collected on a website: pep.org.ua. Learn more about Ukrainian case study in our brief.
