Hunter Biden hindered anticorruption in Ukraine - US Senate

The links between Hunter Biden (pictured left), son of Democratic Party's presidential candidate Joe Biden (pictured right), and Ukrainian corrupt energy company Burisma damaged the United States' anticorruption efforts in the Eastern European country, Republican chairmen of two US Senate committees have said in a report published on Wednesday.

Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley noted that "US officials had no other choice but to endure the 'awkward[ness]' of continuing to push an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine while the vice president's son sat on the board of a Ukrainian company with a corrupt owner."

According to the GOP senators, only two American officials "raised concerns to their superiors" about Hunter Biden's role on the board of Burisma. "Their concerns appear to have fallen on deaf ears," it was also said in the report.
