Ukraine reporting to partners on use of money and weapons provided – Markarova

Ukraine's Ambassador to the United States Oksana Markarova has said that she does not remember such a level of cooperation, understanding and mutual transparency between Kyiv and Washington as they have now.

She said this in an interview with the Voice of America.

"I am involved in all communications. I can't tell about all of them, but I don't remember such a level of cooperation, understanding and mutual transparency as we have now. There is not even a day when we don't exchange information, including from our side," she said.

Markarova noted that Ukraine provides its partners with a full understanding of how it uses funds and weapons – as much as it is possible in the conditions of active hostilities. In addition to exchanging information with the Pentagon and the White House, the Ukrainian authorities constantly inform Congress as well, she said.

"This was the initiative of the Ukrainian side. When they started allocating the first tranches for the Ukrainian budget, we provided full reporting as soon as these funds were exchanged for hryvnias and spent. We sent these reports not only to the U.S. administration, USAID and the World Bank, through whose account these funds go. We also send the same reports to the Congress, and the World Bank also does it separately," she said.

Last week, Congresswoman from the Republican Party Victoria Spartz wrote a letter to U.S. President Joe Biden about the need to check whether the head of the President's Office, Andriy Yermak, has alleged Russian connections. In addition, in other addresses, she voiced concerns about oversight over the supply of U.S.-made weapons to Ukraine.
