He said that President Poroshenko in his conversation with the U.S. Vice President Joe Biden allegedly pointed to inadmissibly harsh criticism of the Prosecutor General's Office by Pyatt.
"As far as I know, the president rigidly said to Biden that the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt should not have made the statement regarding the quality of the Shokin's PGO work. In response, he [Biden - ed.] agreed and said that Pyatt would be withdrawn from Kyiv next February," Kononenko said as quoted by RBK Ukraine.
The Embassy press office said that Biden had not said these words, when commenting on Kononenko's statement.
The press officer of the Embassy said that the Vice President Biden's press office would confirm his words that these statements were fake.
