U. S. President Donald Trump states that Ukrainian businessman Victor Pinchuk did not ask him via videoconferencing to deliver speech at YES conference in Kyiv in 2015.
“The Failing New York Times wrote another phony story. It was political pundit Doug Schoen, not a Ukrainian businessman, who asked me to do a short speech by phone (Skype), hosted by Doug, in Ukraine. I was very positive about Ukraine - another negative to the Fake Russia C story!”, Trump wrote.
Previously, it became known that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who oversees ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, got interested in the donation, amounting to $150,000, from Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk in September 2015, made in favor of Donald Trump Fund in exchange of Trump’s 20-minute video speech at Kyiv conference.
