Prosecutor General of Ukraine Iryna Venediktova and representatives of the World Bank spoke about cooperation on the return of illegally withdrawn assets from Ukraine and the fight against corruption.

In a post on her Facebook page, Venediktova wrote: “A fruitful meeting with Regional Director for Eastern Europe, Arup Banerji, Senior Economist and Program Manager for Economic Policy for Eastern Europe, Karlis Smits, and Senior Financial Sector Specialist of the World Bank Group, Laura Pop. The World Bank has long supported Ukraine in setting up anti-corruption authorities and is ready to help build this infrastructure. “

According to Venediktova, the fight against corruption is a “shared responsibility of all law enforcement agencies and government agencies”.

“Another key to the successful development of the state is judicial reform. Both citizens of Ukraine and foreign investors want to live according to transparent rules, not corruption, in a country with the rule of law, and know that they are protected from illegal activities. “Emphasized Venediktova.

The meeting also discussed prospects for cooperation in the field of the return of assets illegally withdrawn from Ukraine.

“We are constantly raising this issue on an international level. We need a common wealth recovery roadmap and the technical support of the World Bank to develop effective mechanisms. We are also open to sharing experiences in the field of cryptocurrency turnover, ”said Venediktova.

As reported by Ukrinform, Venediktova discussed cooperation with the competent Luxembourg authorities in the fight against money laundering and asset recovery on November 11th.
