U.S. Treasury Department has no indication that Ukraine misuses U.S. funds – media

KYIV. Jan 31 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The U.S. Treasury Department said it had no indication that U.S. funds had been misused in Ukraine, but would continue to work closely with Ukrainian authorities to ensure appropriate safeguards were in place to avert corruption, Treasury spokesperson Megan Apper said in response to a query from Reuters.

"We have no indication that U.S. funds have been misused in Ukraine. We welcome the ongoing efforts by the Ukrainian authorities to work with us to ensure appropriate safeguards are in place so that U.S assistance reaches those for whom it is intended," Apper said.

She also said the Treasury would continue to work closely with the World Bank on tracking U.S. disbursements "to confirm that they are used as intended, as well as with Ukraine and other partners to tackle corruption."
