 US officials openly admit they can talk tough with Ukrainian president, PM, prosecutor general, and government, MP Nayyem says

The U.S. authorities are concerned about the slow pace of reform in Ukraine and make no secret of the fact that they can "talk tough" either with the Ukrainian president, and the prime minister, and the prosecutor general, and the government.

Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction MP Mustafa Nayyem said in an interview with Censor.NET commenting on his recent visit to the U.S.

"No one makes a secret of this fact. They openly admit that they can talk hard either with the president, and the prime minister, and the prosecutor general, and the government on specific topics from the NABU to Centerenerho and reform of customs. It was clear beyond any doubt for me after my visit to the U.S. that Biden actually demanded Shokin's (former Prosecutor General of Ukraine - Ed.) resignation as he visited Ukraine. They set this case as an example for us several times," Nayyem said.
