According to the channel, US lawmakers fear that Spartz's criticism of Ukrainian authorities threaten to “undermine confidence” in Volodymyr Zelensky, damage U.S.-Ukraine relations, and give undecided lawmakers an excuse to oppose the next aid package to Ukraine. The channel's sources noted that leading Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Armed Services Committees have already called on Spartz to soften its stance.Lavrov called futile US attempts to spread dominance “Intervened” and the administration of US President Joe Biden: according to CNN sources, officials from the National Security Council and the State Department held a nearly two-hour briefing for Spartz, which concerned her allegations of improper actions by the Ukrainian government. It is noted that officials either refuted the congresswoman's allegations, or did not find enough evidence for her words. The date of the briefing is not specified, however, according to the channel, it took place “recently.” The channel's interlocutors said that Spartz also met with Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Committee chiefs of staff of the United States, and during the meeting, in particular, expressed concern about corruption in Ukraine. According to the channel, Milli did not directly refute the congresswoman's fears, but generally explained that they were exaggerated. Spartz, in particular, criticizes the head of Zelensky's office, Andriy Yermak, whom she accused of “undemocratic management” last month. On July 8, the congresswoman sent a letter to Biden asking for a briefing on Yermak and his alleged “alleged dealings with Russia,” CNN recalls.
