In particular, the lawyer confirmed that he intended to meet with President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky, but he changed his plans as Zelensky’s advisors are hostile to Trump.
“I was going to visit Ukraine on Monday-Wednesday, but I canceled the trip as I found out that the President-elect is surrounded by the people who treated the U.S. President unfairly. It is about the events of 2016. One of them was caught on having been cooperating and helping the election campaign of Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton. And these people are among his key advisors,” Giuliani said.
He also added that “now, Zelensky is in the hands of the people who stood against Trump” and they provided New York Times with information about Trump of a provocative nature.
FBI holds investigation against Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoysky concerning alleged financial frauds including laundering of assets. American media reported earlier that Kolomoysky was “accused of contract killings” (in 2015) and now they believe that he is a patron saint of Zelensk. Due to the investigation, Kolomoysky moved to Israel. Andriy Bogdan, a personal lawyer of Kolomoysky, works in Ze!Team.
