On 1 June, the European Union Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM) began implementation of a new three-year mandate period with a revised structure and set of priorities. The revised mandate and programme will last until 31 May 2024.
During the past six and a half years, the mission has grown from a small team of Ukrainian and EU experts, into a countrywide operation of over 370 staff across four field offices, a mobile unit, as well as its headquarters in Kyiv. Apart from its national staff complement, the mission’s staff come from 24 EU member states, and from Canada. They are based in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv, Mariupol, and Odesa.
EUAM will continue to support the National Police of Ukraine, the Security Service, Prosecution Service and State Border Guard Service, and support new state bodies such as the State Bureau of Investigations and the Bureau of Economic Security.
The mission’s revised five priority areas according the current need for reforms within Ukraine’s civilian security sector are community safety and police management, criminal justice, digital transformation and innovation, national and state security, and organised and cross-border crime. EUAM will also be working on three cross-cutting priorities as before: anti-corruption, good governance, and human rights and gender equality.
