Some time ago US Vice President Joe Biden asked Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to sack the former Attorney General of Ukraine, because otherwise the US government would not provide the promised loan of $ 1 billion, writes the American magazine “Atlantic”.
The magazine quotes Biden, who in his conversation with the Ukrainian President, says: “Petro, you will not get your one billion dollars”. “It’s okay, you can keep the General (prosecutor)” – says Biden. – “Just understand that in that case we will not give you the money.”
Earlier this year Poroshenko submitted a request for the dismissal of the General Prosecutor of Ukraine – Viktor Shokin. It was supported by the Ukrainian Parliament and the Verkhovna Rada, and on March 29, members of the parliament voted in favor of the dismissal.
