The United States welcome resignation of Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin. The US believe currently it’s important to appoint a new Prosecutor General ready to implement reforms, stated the US Ambassador in Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, reports “Interfax-Ukraina”.
“It doesn’t matter how much help international community provides to Ukraine, how much funds and technical support Ukraine receives. Ukraine isn’t challenged by eliminating corruption. For this reason, today’s events in Verkhovna Rada regarding resignation of Prosecutor General, which we highly approve, are so important”, - the Ambassador said.
Pyatt noted that currently it is very important to appoint a new independent, professional Prosecutor General, who will have support of the people of Ukraine.
