The European Union sees the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction as a major security threat. To contain proliferation, it is trying to strengthen export control agencies in other countries. Commissioned by the EU, the Federal Office for Economic and Export Controls is examining the external economic law in Ukraine, giving advice on how to meet European standards and international non-proliferation regimes and schooling civil servants and entrepreneurs.
