West loses confidence in Ukraine’s authorities over personnel policy – FT

Western countries are losing confidence in the Ukrainian authorities because of personnel decisions they do not understand, the Financial Times has quoted an unnamed Ukrainian official as saying.


“The USA and other Western partners want normal, predictable relations with their colleagues. <…> Now they are losing confidence in the Ukrainian government because of personnel decisions that they do not understand,” the publication said.

The publication points out that the resigned head of the Ukrainian Agency for restoration and development of infrastructure Mustafa Nayem back in May warned representatives of the US agency USAID and other organisations about the imminent dismissal. The audio recording of the conversation was at the disposal of the media, emphasised the Financial Times.

In addition, the publication NV reported that the official resigned after the authorities did not include him in the delegation to the conference on the reconstruction of Ukraine in Germany.

We will remind, earlier the newspaper Politico wrote that the support of the Ukrainian government from the United States was reduced to words, and the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin was unable to offer Kiev special assistance during a meeting in Germany.
