KYIV, March 31 – The United States considers the steps of Ukraine regarding Motor Sich and the prosecution of the former leaders of PrivatBank to be encouraging, Charge d'Affaires of the United States in Ukraine Kristina Kvien has said.
"We supported the moves to sanction Victor Medvedchuk, Taras Kozak. They have been using their media assets for years to undermine Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. We were encouraged by the move to sanction a Chinese company for attempting to improperly acquire control of Motor Sich's sensitive technology. The recent charges against former Privat Bank executives are an important first step toward holding accountable the oligarchs accused of stealing billions from the Ukrainian people. We were also encouraged by moves to hold accountable those responsible for meddling in U.S. elections," Kvien said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
