Kurt Volker: ‘It Has Long Been U.S. Policy to Urge Ukraine to Fight Corruption’

‘I was quite comfortable with Ukraine making its own statement about its own policy of investigating and fighting corruption at home’

VOLKER: "Third, I did not understand that others believed that any investigation of the Ukrainian company Burisma, which had a history of accusations of corruption, was tantamount to investigating Vice President Biden. I drew a sharp distinction between the two. It has long been U.S. policy under multiple administrations to urge Ukraine to investigate and fight internal corruption. I was quite comfortable with Ukraine making its own statement about its own policy of investigating and fighting corruption at home."
