U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt remarked at the Institute of World Policy Debate on U.S.-Ukraine Relations, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.
Speaking about the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, Pyatt noted that the important issue now is to choose his successor who will be able to build confidence of the people of Ukraine in the Prosecutor General's Office.
He also added that this could become the basis on which the confidence in the government and the state will be built. And thus, foreign countries will be able to continue rendering assistance to Ukraine, Pyatt noted.
According to the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, the first step and the main task will be to choose the leader who "will be really committed to reforms".
"Mr. Shokin is not such a leader, and it's good he should leave," Pyatt said.
