Zelensky accused the Prosecutor General of Ukraine in disrupting a meeting with Trump's lawyer
Rudolf Giuliani, the personal lawyer of the US President Donald Trump, canceled his earlier visit to Kiev to meet with the newly elected President Vladimir Zelensky. Juliani himself confirmed this to 11 May in an interview with the American television channel Fox News.
The lawyer believes that he would find himself in the "environment of people who are enemies of the president, and in some cases enemies of the United States," writes Currently,.
“There are great fears that the new president (of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky - ed.) Is surrounded by people who are enemies of the president (US Donald Trump - ed.),” Giuliani said.
According to Giuliani, the reason for the cancellation of the trip was deputy Sergei Leshchenko due to the fact that he made public the “black bookkeeping” of the Party of Regions (the party of the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych). In this document, as noted by Interfax, Paul Manafort, the former head of Trump's campaign headquarters, appeared.
Sergei Leshchenko in his blog on the site of "Ukrainian Truth" stated, that the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Yuriy Lutsenko, misinformed Giuliani in order to remain at his post.
“Unfortunately, President Trump's lawyer has become a target for manipulation and lies by the Attorney General Yuriy Lutsenko. Lutsenko systematically misinforms Giuliani in order to maintain his position as prosecutor general. For example, Lutsenko is lying in his claims that the “black bookkeeping” of the Party of Regions is falsified. On the contrary, the examination and interrogations of the persons involved in this document confirmed its veracity, ”Leshchenko notes, adding that in the USA the veracity of“ black accounting ”was proved by the verdict in the Paul Manafort case.
Lutsenko has not yet commented on this information.
Earlier this week the American edition The New York Times reported that Rudolph Giuliani plans to visit Kiev in the coming days to meet with the newly elected President of Ukraine, Vladimir Zelensky.
Giuliani spoke about plans to meet with Zelensky to learn more about the two cases that are of great importance for Trump.
The first is the origins of the investigation of the special prosecutor regarding Russia's intervention in the election of the US president 2016. The second is the possible involvement of the son of former Vice President Joseph Biden to the activities of the gas company Burisma Holding, which belongs to the Ukrainian oligarch and politician Nikolay Zlochevsky.
Giuliani said in an interview with the NYT that he did not plan to "interfere in the elections," but considers himself entitled to be interested in the progress of the investigation.
The NYT journalist suggests that Giuliani's trip is part of the Trump team's efforts to “discredit the special attorney's investigation, raise a case against former Trump chief of staff Paul Manafort, and potentially harm Biden, who announced his intention to compete for the 2020 presidential election from the Democratic Party. ”.
US Attorney General William Barr in a letter to Congress on the results of the investigation said in March that Robert Mueller, who was investigating the case of possible Russian interference in the US presidential election and the possible collusion of President Donald Trump or his campaign workers with Russia, did not conclude that whether President Donald Trump obstructed the "Russian investigation".
However, Muller himself did not fully agree with how Barr presented his findings, which is why Democrats in the Senate accused the Minister of Justice of misleading the public and trying to shield Trump.
Trump himself denies any interference by Russia in the elections he won.
