A grant from the U.S. are not provided because of distrust to the Prosecutor General Viktor Shokina
U.S. grant, who lost in the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office, was not expressed because of mistrust to Ukraine and to the Prosecutor General Victor Shokina. About it in interview New time said the Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine David Sakvarelidze.
The question that the Prosecutor General's office is looking for money, which was not, Sakvarelidze said, "actually, Yes. The money had not been allocated. Initially, the U.S. Embassy stated that they are willing to spend $2 million in funding different projects of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office".
According to Sakvarelidze, because later "have any problems with Victor Solinym, trust him, and the Ambassador has repeatedly spoken on this issue, then this program actually has stopped."
He noted that there were several large donors who funded specific moments. "For example, the first phase of electronic records management - he had been allocated money from the European Union. America is still ready to allocate this money. For example, the American organization that sponsored the patrol police in Ukraine other projects in the law enforcement system, was ready to Finance and electronic records management in the GPU, but after these claims to Socio all suspended", - said the Deputy Prosecutor General.
He believes that this situation leaves nothing, except a draught of irony.
"U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt has already commented on this question. He had to explain that the main thing here - not the American money, and resistance to reform," said Sakvarelidze.
On his page earlier in Facebook he quoted U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, who wrote on Twitter that the United States does not provide direct budgetary support to the GPU or any other Ukrainian state institutions/agencies.
According to the Ambassador, the financial support of the GPU was performed via the partner international organizations. For example, through the Organization for economic cooperation and development (OECD). Her the United States had provided $200 thousand.
The Prosecutor General's office will conduct an investigation into the treatment of people's deputies on the use of funds allocated to Ukraine the American and European partners for reform of prosecution bodies.
