The signing of the first memorandum at the level of a particular Ukrainian region was attended by the American police officers from the State of California, who train the new Odessa patrol officers. They say that the Odessa region reminds them of Southern California. At a press conference, William Brownfield, the assistant of John Kerry, stressed that Washington fully supported anti-corruption onslaught in Odessa,” Saakashvili wrote on his Facebook.
