The statement of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, who publicly said that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau could have influenced the US presidential election, is not true and is an absurd effort to discredit an independent anti-corruption agency.
The National anti-corruption bureau of Ukraine director Artem Sytnyk held a meeting with the Ambassador of the United States to Ukraine Geoffrey R. Pyatt. During the meeting the parties discussed the results of bilateral cooperation and the plans for the future interaction.
“Powerful officials may impede the Bureau's work, but you have to remember that the people of Ukraine as well as your western partners are on your side. The USA will do its utmost to support Ukraine in the fight against corruption,” - said Jeff Cole, representative of the US Embassy and one of the detective training programme participants at the briefing on the start of training for the NABU detectives.
