U.S. Ambassador notices weakening of oligarchs in Ukraine

U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt sees progress in combating corruption in Ukraine. However, he notes that Kyiv should still do much.

He said this in an interview with the Der Standard Austrian media outlet, zn.ua Ukrainian portal reports.

The main achievement, according to him, has become establishment of the new institutions such as the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine.

The diplomat also noted that the oligarchs in Ukraine were not so strong and influential now as they had been few years ago.

"The oligarchs have weakened. We had a similar problem in the United States in the early 20th century, when there were Rockefeller and Carnegie. However, we tamed the problem. Ukraine has just started this process and should still do much," the ambassador added.
