Annotation: This report contains a series of papers from a United States-Ukraine research partnership that focused on crime in Post-Soviet Ukraine, convened in Ukraine in January 2002 and in Washington, DC in May 2002.
Abstract: A series of 17 papers were presented at both conferences, and they are presented in this report in both English and Ukrainian. The conferences were attended by staff from the International Center, the United States and Ukrainian researchers, and government officials from both countries. Topics range from human trafficking to the prosecution of drug-related crimes in Ukraine to organized transnational computer crime. Other paper topics include the improvement of law enforcement activities in Ukraine regarding the prevention and detection of transnational crimes within the electronic banking systems; the scientific connections between criminalistics and mathematics in the detection of economic crimes; cooperation between law enforcement and control agencies related to the investigation of economic crimes committed by organized crime groups; victimization related to business and organized crime; the connection between economic crime and corruption in Ukraine; a statistical analysis of organized criminal groups in Ukraine; the system of management-related crimes in the new criminal code of Ukraine; judicial control in the administration of justice in cases of crimes committed by organized crime groups; tactic operations for investigating organized crime groups; criminal law as it relates to organized crime groups; and countering criminal technologies in foreign trade. For example, the first paper, written by a law professor from Ukraine, discusses the trade in women and children for the purpose of sexual exploitation and involvement in “porno-business.” Results of this research indicated that during the first half of 2001, officials in Ukraine opened 35 criminal cases on trade in human beings. Victim’s stories revealed that, in most cases, victims were captured by deception, such as fake promises of legitimate employment and fake promises of education for children. The routes of trafficking are described and the research indicates that organized crime groups were behind most of the trade in women and children.
