Audio of the calls with English subtitles was later posted on YouTube. In one conversation, Biden and Poroshenko discuss the aftermath of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin’s ouster and the appointment of his replacement. “It’s going to be critical for him to work quickly to repair the damage that Shokin did,” Biden said in the call. “And I’m a man of my word. And now that the new prosecutor general is in place, we’re ready to move forward to signing that new $1 billion loan guarantee.” Giuliani claims Ukrainian company paid Joe Biden $900,000 in lobbying fees. At the time, Biden was publicly pushing for reform of the prosecutor general’s office. Last year, Biden said he told Poroshenko that Ukraine would not receive the $1 billion unless Shokin was booted.
