Member of the US House of Representatives Victoria Spartz on Friday 8 July, appealed to US President Joe Biden with a request to provide an explanation of the oversight procedures associated with the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak.
Part of Victoria Spartz's letter to the President is hidden from publication, covered with a black plate; the content of this fragment is not specified. However, in the general description of the letter there is a brief mention of the alleged presence of “various intelligence information about the actions of Mr. Yermak in Ukraine and his possible ties with Russia.” These theses are not displayed in the open part of the letter.
The Congresswoman also mentions in the letter that the head of the President's Office appointed Oleg Tatarov as his deputy for law enforcement, while he “delays the appointment of an independent anti-corruption prosecutor for more than a year , which is why the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau are not functioning.”
In an address to Biden, Spartz writes that “Mr. Yermak causes a lot of concern for a number of people in the United States and abroad, it is believed that he is held in high esteem by your national security adviser Jake Sullivan.”
“While President Zelenskiy is working hard to forge alliances with the West and our country, it is our responsibility to let him know if we are concerned about key people in his environment. It is also our duty to the brave Ukrainian soldiers and the strong Ukrainian people who are fighting for freedom and international order for all of us,” – concludes Spartz.
