Many people asked us to have an impact on NABOO, but we don’t do that – the US Ambassador to Ukraine

At the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine stated that they have influence on The national anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine.

“I can tell you frankly that many have asked to influence on NABOO anyway – we don’t do that. Because our instance is so not working. And we believe that so should not work the law enforcement system in Ukraine. Oh no pressure or influence cannot be considered. If we started to affect the very existence of the anti-corruption body as NABOO would fall into question”, – told in interview to the program “Right to Vlad,” on the TV channel “1+1” US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

“In fact, the meeting was precisely in order to learn personally from the heads of NABU and SAP about their understanding of the situation and how to move forward. The meeting was the assurance of the support of anti-corruption structures. Therefore, I think it was misrepresentation,” said Marie Yovanovitch.

The diplomat also noted that he frequently speaks with the leaders of NABOO and the ARS Artem Sytnik and Nazar Holodnenkim. According to her, the Embassy has staff who communicates with them, and these conversations dealing with “technical assistance”.
