Lutsenko apologizes to Giuliani for Leshchenko's comments, looking forward to his visit to Ukraine soon
Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko has apologized for the assessments of Ukrainian independent deputy Serhiy Leschenko regarding personal lawyer of the U.S. President Donald Trump, Rudolf Giuliani, and looks forward to his early visit to Ukraine.
"I think that the statements of a single citizen Leshchenko are his personal attitude and cannot influence our interstate relations. I would like to apologize to Mr. Giuliani for the assessments that Leshchenko allows himself publicly, and especially not publicly, in respect of Mr. Giuliani ... I very much hope that Mr. Giuliani will soon come to Ukraine and will meet with those officials he deems necessary. If necessary, he will meet with me," Lutsenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.
According to Lutsenko, Giuliani called him the next morning after the cancellation of his visit to Ukraine, was emotional and stressed that it was not a question of Giuliani-Leschenko, but a question of Ukraine-U.S.
Speaking about the reasons for the cancellation of Giuliani's visit to Ukraine, the Prosecutor General noted that he could not disclose everything, but "this is not about the usual cancellation of the visit of one of the U.S. lawyers."
