U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt explained that the funds allocated by the United States were not sent directly to the accounts of the prosecuting authorities of Ukraine but to international partner organizations.

Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

The diplomat said that the U.S. provided $200,000 to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to develop tests for the prosecutor's office employees, and an additional $2 million for the International Development and Law Organization to spend on the Prosecutor General's Office reform promotion in the future.

He also stressed that the United States expected the Prosecutor General's Office to demonstrate a real fight against corruption, not an open and violent resistance to reform.
