Due to operational security matters, the National Crime Agency (NCA) cannot provide this information.

The Combatting Kleptocracy Cell (CKC) was established in the NCA following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. The CKC builds on the NCA’s existing expertise and uses all available capabilities to crack down on sanctions evasion and high-end money laundering. The CKC forms an integral part of the wider government response to Russia-linked illicit finance.
