The National Crime Agency’s Combatting Kleptocracy Cell (CKC) has been tasked with investigating criminal sanctions evasion and high-end money laundering, including by individuals in the UK who are linked to the Russian regime.

Of the total CKC disruptions recorded, from the invasion of Ukraine to date, they are split approximately a third each between major, moderate and minor. For reasons of operational security we are not able to provide further details publicly.
