Remarks by Chargé d’Affaires a.i. William Taylor At a Transfer Ceremony of Vehicles to the National Police of Ukraine

December 2, 2019

Chief Klymenko, congratulations, thank you very much for inviting us here.  We are very pleased to be here at this transfer ceremony for these 88 vehicles.

This is the latest in a long series of cooperative measures, Chief, that we are working [on] with the police of Ukraine, together with the United States.

You have been on the leading edge of reform of the National Police of Ukraine, including a range of programs, including the national Patrol Police.  I was very pleased to visit one of the territorial community policing projects.  This was a very impressive project.

And I understand, Chief, that many of these vehicles will go to the community police.  So it is with great pleasure that I present you the documents for the transfer of these 88 vehicles.

So, with this, we continue our cooperation, and we look forward to more of these kind of ceremonies in the future.

Slava Ukraini!
