Head of the National Police of Ukraine Khatia Dekanoidze agreed in Washington, D.C. about aid to continue reform of the law enforcement agencies of Ukraine.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, both financial and technical assistance are meant.

According to Dekanoidze, the U.S. is ready to assist with training of Ukrainian policemen, including instructors. The head of the National police has not voiced the amount of the U.S.-promised assistance.

"First of all, I told about our plans and our needs. (...) During the talks, my message was clear that 2016 will be a key year for reforms in the National police," Dekanoidze said, noting that her time in the U.S. was a continuation of the dialogue started with the U.S. authorities during Joe Biden's visit to Ukraine.
