Issue seems a bit ambiguous , its ok for USA to help Ukraine with detailed negotiations with Russia and trying to clean up the corruption cloud that has hampered Ukraine for so many past years but its not OK when USA requests aide in investigating possible conflict of interest associations involving a political USA figure placed on the board of an influential Ukraine business???
