Committees of the United States Senate have published a report on the activities of the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden in Ukraine. This was reported by UNN with reference to Radio Liberty.

"The U.S. Senate National Security and Government Affairs Committee and the Finance Committee released a report on September 23 on Hunter Biden, Burisma and Corruption, about the activities of the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden in Ukraine," the statement said. .

Thus, the 87-page document details the work of Hunter Biden on the board of the gas company Burisma. The authors of the report claim that "such activities created a conflict of interest at a time when Joe Biden was vice president and took care of the administration of Ukraine," the newspaper writes.

"The committee chairs during the investigation found that the Obama administration knew that Hunter Biden's tenure on the Burisma board was problematic and hindered the effective implementation of Ukraine's strategy," the report said.

The report states that it is not clear to what extent Biden's son's presence in Burisma has influenced the Obama administration's policy toward Ukraine. Earlier, Senator Johnson, the initiator of the investigation into Biden's activities in Ukraine, said that the investigation "I think will reveal that he should not be elected president of the United States."

"Joe Biden's campaign headquarters immediately criticized the report, calling it an attempt by Donald Trump's allies to harm his political opponent and interfere in the election process six weeks before the election. In particular, the report said that Biden, as vice president, put pressure on Ukraine, insisting on the dismissal of then-Attorney General Viktor Shokin, as if trying to stop the investigation against the owners of "Burisma", - it is said. in the message.

Joe Biden's staff also added that press reports and statements indicated that there were no active investigations against Burisma at the time of Shokin's release in 2016 and that his release was in line with the official US position.
