“We are pleased to welcome Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut to Kyiv for meetings with Ukrainian officials on the strong U.S.-Ukraine partnership,” the message said.
The embassy has noted that the senators have begun their visit in Kyiv with the meeting with Prosecutor General Ryaboshapka, who share “their views on the anti-corruption reform in Ukraine.”
Besides, Vitaly Kasko, ex-deputy of prosecutor general (2014-2016), also took part in the meeting. According to the source in the law enforcement bodies, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General is going to appoint Kasko as the first deputy.
Earlier senators Ron Johnson and Chris Murphy were refused in getting a visa for entering Russia. Soon, the senators announced their visit to Ukraine “to show the bipartisan support to the new Ukrainian government.”
As we reported, U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton hoped for the good relationship between Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka and U.S. Attorney General William Barr.
