( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

"Constructive relations between Ukraine and the United States of America would continue to be preserved in years to come," -- Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov

Dmytro Razumkov, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, met with George Kent, the Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the U.S. Department of State.

At the beginning of the meeting, the Chairman thanked the United States of America for being a steady and reliable friend of Ukraine.  He also expressed his gratitude for supporting Ukraine in protecting its territorial integrity, fighting for independence, for long-standing strategic cooperation and helping in reforming numerous realms, including the fight against corruption.

According to the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, corruption is one of the key problems - “alongside the war in the east and occupation of the Crimea.  Corruption is a disease we are fighting against, and I hope that in the near future we will be able to overcome this problem and experience significant changes,” Dmytro Razumkov stated.

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada also thanked for the support the USA renders at the international arena in promoting Ukraine’s interests both in Europe and around the world.

He expressed his hope that the constructive relations between Ukraine and the United States of America would  be maintained, and that the forthcoming meeting of the Presidents of the USA and Ukraine would give a new impetus to their effective cooperation.

Commenting on the speedy work of the Parliament of Ukraine, Dmytro Razumkov stressed that the work of the Verkhovna Rada is still very effective for good measure.

Speaking about the land market launch to come, the speaker of the parliament noted that, first and foremost, it is necessary to protect interests of private owners and interests of the state, as well as to unify the registers involved.

George Kent expressed his positive attitude to the prompt pace of Ukrainian reforms, in particular, in terms of legislation, and warned at the same time against procedural irregularities and stressed the importance of introducing an effective oversight against activities of public institutions in various fields.

The US Assistant Secretary of State assured Ukraine's continued support, in particular, in reforming the judiciary and justice system, security, information and energy spheres.  "This is not just a promise from the Presidential Administration and the US Congress, but also a real pecuniary aid of USD three billion," the politician highlighted.

The meeting was also attended by US Ambassador, Charge d’Affaires William Taylor and the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Foreign Policy and Inter-parliamentary Cooperation Bohdan Yaremenko.
