About this talk

In this session, Oleksii Serdyuk and Anna Markovska will present their paper on the level of war-time organized criminal activity in Ukraine by using media reports and anecdotal evidence from Kharkiv and Odesa. After this intervention, André Duffles Teixeira Aranega will present his findings on the ‘crime-conflict nexus’ to demonstrate the interconnections between the dynamics of cross-border illicit economies and the Russo-Ukrainian conflict. After that, Mr. Aranega will provide his standpoint on emerging security implications as a result of the war. The session will conclude with a presentation by Aleksandras Dobryninas and Maryja Šupa, who will speak about how and why the issues of organized crime and criminal operandi are absent in Lithuanian public discourse.
