US President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani has revealed the goal of his planned visit to Ukraine, which was ultimately called off. He told Censor.net in an interview that he wanted to give Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a message from Donald Trump.
Giuliani said that, first and foremost, he wanted to convince Zelensky to continue the investigation into Hunter Biden, son of Trump’s primary competitor and former vice president Joe Biden, as well as the other people who launched a campaign against the US president.
“We need to put an end to this once and for all. This will become the most important fragment of the picture of how they put together these false charges against President Trump. Yes, there are also other fragments (in our country, the UK, in Italy and in Cyprus) – not just in Ukraine. But this is an important fragment,” said Trump’s attorney.
Giuliani said that the message that he would have given Zelensky from Trump was: “Surrounding yourself with the enemies of President Trump is not the best idea.” In particular, he was referring to Andriy Bohdan, the attorney of oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi who has been appointed head of Ukraine’s Presidential Administration.
“It’s one thing to surround yourself with decent people who have different political views, and another thing altogether to appoint a guy who worked as the lawyer of a top oligarch who they say took billions from your bank,” Giuliani remarked.
He added that Zelensky would do well to establish honest and strong relations with Washington.
As reported previously, Rudy Giuliani planned to visit Kyiv to meet with the newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, but later canceled his trip due to “enemies of Trump” in Zelensky’s team.
Another such “enemy” of the US president is the MP Serhiy Leshchenko, who supposedly published some dirt on Trump in the hope that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election.
Leshchenko himself claims that Giuliani is involved in a plan orchestrated by Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko to incriminate Joe Biden.
