Marie Yovanovitch, the Ambassador of the U.S. who is about to complete her cadence in Ukraine has not always been objective in her evaluations of the activities of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies. Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said that at a briefing on Tuesday. 

'Unfortunately, the U.S. Ambassador - currently, the ex-ambassador - has not been always objective when updating the information about the situation in our country, specifically, in the law enforcement agencies. It seems to me that Mrs. Ambassador was too biased in her attitude, dividing people on the good and the bad ones, the favorites of the Embassy who were always right - the people like Sytnyk, Leshchenko and others', Lutsenko said.

According to Prosecutor General, he passed this information to Rudolph Giuliani, the personal lawyer of U.S. President Donald Trump as he met with him in Kyiv; Lutsenko asked him to take it into account when evaluating the situation in Ukraine.  

On May 6, the media reported that Yovanovitch is being recalled from her office in Kyiv due to the expiry of her three-years-long cadence. She is supposed to get back to the States on May 20. The Department of the State confirmed it.
