Bill Taylor, U.S. Charge d’Affaires in Ukraine and key witness in House of Representatives impeachment hearings of U.S. President Donald Trump, will depart from his temporary post on January 2, CNN reports.

The former ambassador had been brought out of retirement earlier this year to take on duties in the embassy after Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was recalled to Washington at the Trump's direction.
Taylor provided a lot of information on Trump telling his appointees to establish a quid pro quo with Ukraine, offering much-needed U.S. military aid and an Oval Office meeting in exchange for personal political favors.
According to the sources, there were ways to extend his time in Kyiv, but there was no effort in doing so.
As we reported earlier, William Taylor, the U.S. Chargé d’Affaires in Ukraine congratulated Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on the most recent "accomplishments" in Donbas and foreign policy.
"I congratulate President Zelenskyy and his foreign policy team for their recent accomplishments. Successfully bringing sailors and other political prisoners home; disengaging at Stanytsia Luhanska, Zolote, and Petrivske; and, most recently, securing the return of the Ukrainian ships that Russia illegally seized are concrete accomplishments on the road to peace, and all Ukrainians have reason to be proud. We also welcome the announcement of the upcoming Normandy Format summit and look forward to additional progress toward peace," the statement reads.
