US Ambassador to Ukraine Yovanovitch is on the way out. She was targeted by 🇺🇦officials for supporting allegedly disruptive anti-corruption activists. Her support for a particular anti-corruption agency, NABU, backfired when it was implicated in corruption by reporters

We're yet to hear what caused Yovanovitch’s alleged early departure, but imo her stint in Ukraine can largely be defined by her relationship with anti-corruption agencies and activists there.

The support Ukraine's NABU received from & under Yovanovitch defined that agency's credibility with Ukrainians. That's why I think NABU's alleged corruption hurt the US standing in UA

Western support for NABU was criticized in Ukraine at the highest level by less than perfect critics

In what is VERY illustrative of Ukraine's (&Yovanovitch) fight against corruption, Yovanovitch in a recent speech called for removal of Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Kholodnytsky. THE IRONY: 2 years ago the USA Embassy praised him for "progress in prosecuting high-level corruption"

Embattled Prosecutor General likely implied Yovanovitch when in March he said “attacks by foreign embassies” & “so-called activists” defending “monopoly”of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau rendered other agencies unable to prosecute corruption
