Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

The Trump Administration announces that U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch will be out of her position come May 20.

Sections of an e-mail shared with RFE/RL but not yet made public said Yovanovitch’s last day would be May 20, and a charge d’affaires — basically an embassy’s chief operating officer — would then be appointed long-term until a new ambassador is nominated and confirmed.

Sworn in as ambassador to Kyiv in August 2016, Yovanovitch has been at the forefront of U.S. efforts to help stabilize Ukraine’s shaky economy and push reforms to root out endemic corruption.

In January, Rudy Giuliani met with Ukraine’s Prosecutior-General Yuriy Lutsenko to pressure him in to prosecuting Trump’s rivals. In March, Lutsenko accused Yovanovitch of abusing her position. Trump’s State Department denied Lutsenko’s allegations.

In a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July, Trump says Yovanovitch is “going to go through some things.”
