President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in the U.S. met American businessmen Sam Kislin tied with the international crime as The Insider reported.
According to The Insider, on September 25, during the official visit of Zelensky to the U.S, near Parker hotel, two meetings took place: one in the hotel and another one in the building near the hotel in Russian Tea Room restaurant. Zelensky and a few dozens of people participated in the first meeting. The second one took place in the close circle and Zelensky was represented by Head of the President’s Office Andriy Bohdan.
Sam Kislin supposedly introduced people to each other, shared his contacts; however, at the same time, he was pushing his own agenda.
It is mentioned that in the interview with NTV, Kislin admitted that he convinced Giuliani to recommend Trump to facilitate story about corruption in Ukraine.
The Insider stated that Kislin has his own ends in the involvement of Giuliani and Trump in the story: his motivation lies in the return of the assets frozen in Ukraine during Poroshenko’s presidency within the search of Yanukovych’s money.
“The issue is about this: in 2014 Kislin purchased Cypriot company Opalcore Ltd for $8 million on discount. $20 million bonds were placed on its assets in Ukrainian banks and they were arrested. About $23 million with percents. But he did not get money – these funds were confiscated due to the verdict of Kramatorsk court on Yanukovych case. As Poroshenko was in power, Kislin was silent and now by establishing communication with Zelensky on diaspora line, he became active,” the message said.
Sam Kislin is the American businessman of Ukrainian origin, the owner of Trans Commodities Inc.
