"Kasko was a champion for change within the Prosecutor General's Office. His resignation is a blow to Ukraine's reform progress," he tweeted.

In this regard, Pyatt said that "Ukraine deserves a clean judiciary. Will require top-to-bottom rule of law reform to address pervasive corruption + cronyism."
