The United States newly appointed Ambassador to Ukraine, John Tefft, will arrive in Kyiv on December 2, Ukrainian MFA spokesman Valeriy Dzhyhun has announced Wednesday, according to UKRINFORM

“We have already received confirmation that the U.S. ambassador arrives in Kyiv on December 2,” he said. 

The upper house of the United States Congress, the Senate, supported the appointment of John Tefft as the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.

U.S. President Barack Obama nominated Tefft for the post late in September 2009, remaining a final decision to the discretion of the U.S. Senate. 

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is expected to hold the oath taking ceremony of Tefft. 

Tefft dedicated over 30 years to his diplomatic career. He worked in Jerusalem, Budapest, Rome, Moscow, and Vilnius. He earlier served as U.S. ambassador to Georgia.
