Ex-U.S. Ambassador in Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch agreed to testify before committees of the Congress on October 11; her testimony could prove valuable in terms of an investigation into the possible impeachment of U.S. leader Donald Trump. Reuters reported that Monday, October 7.

The ex-official is now a participant in the investigation held by the House of Representatives, which is chaired by the Democrats. Currently, the officials decide whether Trump has to be brought to responsibility for applying pressure on Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, so that Ukraine would start a probe into convictions against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who worked for Burisma Group, a gas production company in Ukraine.

Yovanovitch was called off in May 2019, several months before her cadence was expired. She said her leave coincided with the election of a new President of Ukraine.

As is known, the scandal began after the Trump-Zelensky phone call's content was made public. This fact triggered the procedure of impeachment of the U.S. leader. During that conversation, Trump insisted that the investigation against Burisma Group gas production company where Hunter Biden worked must be continued. The U.S. Congress began to look into this case.
