By Kieran Beer

In the latest episode of Financial Crime Matters, Kieran Beer, editor in chief of ACAMS, and Daniel Thelesklaf, project director for Finance Against Slavery and Trafficking (FAST) at the U.N. University Center for Policy Research, cover how Russia’s invasion has further exposed Ukraine to human trafficking and how financial services shield displaced and marginalized populations from the crime. They also discuss red flags financial institutions should incorporate into their transaction-screening systems and compliance programs to better detect traffickers.
