Abstract: 

The conflict in Ukraine has had significant consequences in INTERPOL.  Ukraine has disconnected from the INTERPOL network due to its fear of Russia’s misuse of INTERPOL’s channels.  On March 10, INTERPOL announced that the Russian National Central Bureau (NCB) can no longer send diffusions directly.  On March 25, 2022, INTERPOL announced that it deployed an Operational Support Team to Moldova in response to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
