The EU-funded PRAVO Police Programme has made a delivery of hardware and software for criminal analysis experts working at the National Police of Ukraine (NPU).
Overall, the NPU received over 1,300 items of equipment and software valued at over €755,000.
The equipment was procured under the Programme’s ‘Intelligence-Led Policing’ (ILP) support package.
Head of the NPU Criminal Analysis Department Dmytro Khudenko said the donated equipment would have a tangible impact on the efficiency of police work. “When operated by trained professionals, this hardware can generate value that far exceeds its nominal price. For instance, the Criminal Analysis Department works to identify Russian assets to be frozen and confiscated. Potentially, this implies significant revenue for the state budget and means the ex-owners will no longer be able to harm the European Union and Ukraine. We are getting one step closer to the proactive approach foreseen by the ILP concept,” said Khudenko.
The PRAVO Police Programme is implemented by UNOPS in close cooperation with the European Union Advisory Mission Ukraine.
