The record appeared last Monday: it discusses the organization of the civil unrest in various regions of Ukraine (particularly Odessa and Zaporozhye) with a view to their subsequent separation from the country. In addition, there is the issue of financing of Pro-Russian speeches and forced local deputies to the Pro-Russian vote.
The question RBC, whether the voices in the alleged wiretapping, belongs to Sergei Glazyev, he replied that he would not “comment on the nonsense of Nazi war criminals”.
Konstantin Zatulin gave a more detailed answer. He confirmed that in the recording it sounds like his voice, however, suggested that his statements are “compilation and manipulation”. Zatulin also said that the wiretap was provided to Ukraine in exchange for the “surrender” Paul Manafort, now head of the headquarters of Donald trump, and previously helped the fugitive ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
However, none of the speakers did not directly comment on the words attributed to them. So, the eye supposedly held talks with the Orthodox activist Kirill Frolov, asking him to organise protests at the building of the Odessa regional administration. Zatulin also allegedly said Glazyev on the financing of separatist sentiment in the Crimea.
At the same time Zatulin has long-advocated ideas on the topic of Ukraine: the similar words he wrote back in 1997 along with Andronik Migranyan in “Nezavisimaya Gazeta”, at best “contribute to the disintegration of Ukraine” rather than “to endure her constant challenge and the erosion of our (Russian — ed.) efforts in the near abroad”.
