The international Ukraine Forum on Asset Recovery (UFAR) – led by Britain and the United States – unveiled details of the talks on Monday, calling them “a landmark for Ukraine”. UFAR hopes to mobilise the international community in order to track down and recover stolen assets, in the process sending “a strong message that there is no impunity for those who carry out such illegal actions”.
