New United States Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is expected to arrive in Kyiv next week.

This has been posted by the US Embassy in Ukraine on Twitter.

"Looking forward to welcoming Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch to Ukraine next week!" reads a statement.

As a reminder, in mid-July, the US Senate approved the nomination of diplomat Marie Yovanovitch as a new United States Ambassador to Ukraine instead Geoffrey Pyatt.

Marie Yovanovitch worked in Ukraine in 2001-2004 as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv.
