U.S. Senate releases report on son Biden's work in Ukraine

Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine created a conflict of interest, according to the document’s authors, two Republican Party senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Gresley.
In the United States, two Senate committees released a report on the work in Ukraine of Hunter Biden, son of presidential candidate Joe Biden. The report is about his work on the board of the gas company Burisma, Voice of America reported on Wednesday, September 23. The 87-page report was released by the National Security and Finance Committees. The authors of the document, Republican Party senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Gresley argue that the work of Hunter Biden created a conflict of interest because at that time Joe Biden, as U.S. vice president, was in charge of Ukrainian affairs.

“Committee chairmen discovered in the course of the investigation that the Obama administration knew that the fact that Hunter Biden held a position on the Board of Burisma was problematic and hindered the effective implementation of the strategy for Ukraine,” the document says.

At the same time, the report itself states that it is still unclear to what extent Biden Jr.’s work influenced the Obama administration’s policy toward Ukraine.

The report was released six weeks before the U.S. presidential election, in which Joe Biden is the main rival of incumbent President Donald Trump, a Republican candidate.

As you know, in December 2019 Donald Trump was impeached because of his attempt to influence President Zelensky in order to launch an investigation into the activities in Ukraine of the son of former President Joe Biden, associated with Burisma in exchange for financial and military assistance to Kiev.
