Kurt Volker on Thursday will testify in Congress on the “Ukrainian case”

The former US special representative for Ukraine will answer questions from lawmakers about President Trump’s agreements with the Ukrainian authorities.
Kurt Volker, the former US special envoy for Ukraine, will testify on Thursday at hearings before several House committees involved in an investigation that could potentially lead to the start of impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump.

Volker will answer questions from lawmakers about President Trump’s informal arrangements with Ukrainian authorities. Tomorrow, closed hearings with him will be held in the Intelligence Committee, the Committee on oversight and government reform, as well as in the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives.

Volker assumed the duties of a special representative for Ukraine in 2017. Former Secretary of state Rex Tillerson appointed him to this position. Before that, he worked for more than 20 years in public authorities. In 1998, he was appointed first Secretary of the US mission to NATO. In July 2008, President George W. Bush appointed him permanent US representative to NATO.

Volker was also an aide to the late Senator John McCain for two years. In 2012, Kurt Volcker became Executive Director of the McCain Institute for international leadership, established by the University of Arizona. The position of the Walker is to this day.
