Pyatt said that focusing on Yatseniuk, Jaresko, or Hroisman was wrong as "who" is less important than "what." Clear understanding of Ukraine's agenda and agreement among political factions on the support and implementation of reforms is crucial, he added.
The diplomat noted the resistance to reforms within the ruling coalition was unacceptable. According to him, the deputies have advanced really far in this issue and there is no way back.
Pyatt welcomed the progress in privatization, freedom of information, financial supervision, and all the structural changes intended to make it harder for the oligarchic mafias to do their business. The parliament should carry on like that as this is a precondition for having strong support from the United States, the ambassador remarked.
