Text of prepared testimony of Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Keith Dayton, nominee for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on August 5.
Chairman Risch, Ranking Member Menendez and members of this committee: It is an honor to appear before you today as President Trump’s nominee to serve as the United States’ Ambassador to Ukraine. If confirmed, I look forward to working with this committee and Congress to continue our strong bipartisan support for the Ukrainian people, enhance our already deep bilateral relationship, support Ukraine’s reform agenda, counter Russian malign influence, and work to fully restore sovereignty and territorial integrity. These steps will be critical to advancing our shared goal of Ukraine joining the Euro-Atlantic community as a full and free member.
