On May 23, 2022, Europe Center Research Assistant Francis Shin published an article in Foreign Policy, “Corruption Could Mean Ukraine Loses a Future Peace”.

“The EU and other donors party to the Ukraine Solidarity Trust Fund should form an active oversight body within the fund over how it awards contracts.

The standards for distributing contracts can be based on the EU’s existing regulations, which have helped prevent the misappropriation of their funds.,” Shin writes.
