Despite the growing number of reports of possible misuse of aid provided by the United States, its inspectors have found no signs of serious violations in this regard.
According to a Yevropeiska Pravda correspondent, this was stated by Nicole Anjarella, Acting Inspector General of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), at a special meeting in the US Senate on Wednesday.
According to the official, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the United States has created a multi-level system of control over American aid to Ukraine and conducted outreach on how to report suspected violations.
Anjarella noted that since the start of the activity, her office of the USAID inspector general has received 178 reports of possible violations related to Ukraine, which is 556% more than in the previous eleven months.
"To date, we have not had any serious criminal findings related to U.S. assistance to Ukraine. However, this increase in the number of reports shows that our outreach is working. And that people know how and to whom to report potential misuse of USAID funds," emphasized Warren.
The acting USAID inspector general later said that her office is currently conducting two open investigations into possible misuse of U.S. aid and five more are under preliminary investigation.
