Speaking at the meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Biden said that "the Ukrainian leadership should deliver promises of the sacrifices made by those who two years on Maidan made such sacrifices."

"And the central to this second chance toward democracy and making sure it doesn't slip away is the end of cancer of corruption, the culture of impunity that is hub of Ukraine for decades," he said.
