“Not only our — from all of the Parliament”, — said Kornienko, answering a question, whether will go the deputies of the faction “servant of the people” to study in the United States.

He explained that “there is such a program, it has long existed”. According to him, “these are educational programs” that “offer three to five days to spend in the U.S. Congress, a couple of days closer to local government”.

Kornienko said that due to the fact that the fraction of “servant of the people” is the largest, the quota principle in the group will have more members of this faction.

“But again, the question here on schedule! We are now putting a priority on a visit to Rada, committees and related task, then there is everything else — in his spare time. This, again, if it is. As I recall, in March only the first group will go if we on dates with them together”, he added.

Earlier, the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo during a meeting with Zelensky said that the U.S. will continue to support Ukraine in its aspiration to join NATO.
