Vadym Prystaiko, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine discussed in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour the recent allegations from Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian associate of Rudy Giuliani.
“It’s all in Ukrainian media as well — today and yesterday — and strangely enough, my name was not mentioned, even though I’m the minister of foreign affairs,” said Vadym Prystaiko. “Frankly, I have not spoken with this individual, and again, frankly, I don’t trust any word he is now saying. The assistance that he’s referring to was reviewed each and every year, annually at least twice, and half of the year and end of the year. so we knew this was going to be reviewed. Some times it would be cut because of some political understanding of what is to be done in Ukraine.
