Due to Ukraine’s geographical location as well as recent instability, the country is used as a smuggling route for drugs from Asia and Latin America to Europe. To strengthen the ability of staff in the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine to detect and analyse narcotics in addition to the substances which are used to make them (precursors), the EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM) organised two two-day training sessions from 26 - 29 September 2016. A total of 50 customs officers from the whole of Ukraine were trained. These sessions build on and reinforce support provided by other EU donors (EU Border Assistance Mission, EU Support Group for Ukraine, EU Delegation, Twinning projects, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internazionale Zusammenarbeit) as well as other international partners.
