Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) had no influence on the presidential elections in the U.S. in 2016. NABU Head Artem Sytnyk said so in his statement broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
“Neither me, nor the workers of the anti-corruption bureau had influenced the election process in the U.S. I will not comment on the legitimacy and authenticity of the recordings of my personal conversations; at the same time, I can say that I have mentioned publications in the media about some alleged interference in the presidential elections in the U.S. as a joke,” Sytnyk stated.
NABU Head added that he had nothing to hide; therefore, he was ready to confirm this to any competent authority.
March 14, the Ukrainian MP Boryslav Rosenblat accused NABU Head Sytnyk of “leaking black accounts” of the Party of Regions to the headquarters of the presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. Rosenblat gave a USB flash drive with audio records of Sytnyk’s conversation.
The leaks of “black accounts” in the U.S. media led to Manafort’s resign. It also lead to one of the main accusations in the investigation of collusion with Russia. This probe against Trump has been carried out for over two years now.
