Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk, known as the “godfather of Putin” (Russian President was the godfather of his daughter Darya) allegedly acted as the intermediary between the Kremlin and the headquarters of the presidential campaign of Donald trump, according to Reuters.
According to the Agency, during the last seven months of the U.S. presidential race between the headquarters of the trump and the Kremlin allegedly had 18 contacts, emails and calls. Six of them, according to journalists, was carried out through the Russian Ambassador in Washington Sergei Kislyak (the one supposedly called trump’s advisers, including Michael Flynn).
With Medvedchuk, reported by Reuters, allegedly discussed the common themes of the U.S.-Russian agenda, in particular, cooperation in the fight against terrorists in Syria, the establishment of economic relations between Russia and the United States and a tougher policy towards China.
Ukrainian politician himself categorically denies the accuracy of this information. According to him, he is not familiar with any of the environment of Donald trump, so these negotiations could not take place.
Recall that after the crisis of 2014 Medvedchuk became the intermediary between Ukraine and the self-proclaimed DND and LNR, and then entered into the trilateral contact group on settling the situation in Eastern Ukraine.
Trump himself repeatedly denied any connection with Russia.
