Marie Yovanovitch completed her work in Ukraine ahead of schedule in May 2019.
NEW YORK – Secretary of state Michael Pompeo will determine the future career path in the state Department of the former US Ambassador to Kyiv Marie Yovanovitch. US President Donald Trump stated in an interview broadcast to Fox News.
“I know very little about her. I am aware that she is considered a supporter of one party (democratic),” the head of state admitted. “I leave it up to Mike Pompeo to decide whether she stays in the job [at the State Department],” Trump said.
“Maybe she’s a good person, I don’t know,” US President continued, recalling the content of his phone conversation with Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky. “He didn’t really speak very flatteringly of her. It was unexpected because she [as the Ambassador of the United States], as it was supposed, had to, on the contrary, try to please the President of Ukraine and develop an approach to him, ” Trump explained.
He also assured that former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani remains his lawyer. Trump said he did not know Giuliani’s partners, Lev Parnassus and Igor Fruman, who were on trial in the United States. “Yes, I probably took pictures with them. I take pictures with many,” the white house host added.
