Former US special envoy to Ukraine leaving McCain Institute


PHOENIX – The special envoy to Ukraine who stepped down amid the impeachmen­t inquiry into President Donald Trump will no longer lead the McCain Institute.

In a statement Monday issued by the McCain Institute for Internatio­nal Leadership at Arizona State University, Kurt Volker says he is leaving his post as its executive director.

Volker says the media focus on him will likely distract from the institute’s work.

The Institute is named for the late Sen. John McCain and oversees programs focused on national security, human trafficking and other issues.
