Marie L. Yovanovitch to replace outgoing Geoffrey Pyatt
Pyatt, in his turn, was confirmed by the Senate as the new Ambassador to Greece.
President Barack Obama nominated Yovanovitch for the post back in May.
It is not the first time she will be working in Ukraine.
Yovanovitch was Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine from 2001 to 2004 with further promotion to the post of U.S. Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan (2005-2008) and Armenia (2008-2011).
