The American Embassy influenced the decisions of the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian parliament, with the help of information about the bank accounts of key figures of parliament.
This was stated on the air of the TV program “An evening with Vladimir Solovyov” by the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the previous session, Spiridon Kilinkarov.
“I state with responsibly that in the Verkhovna Rada, when there were some difficult political affairs, the ambassador of the US always appeared on the balcony. He didn’t hit anyone with a stick, he didn’t shout, he just culturally sat down in a chair and observed voting in the parliament. If a vote wasn’t passed, in the evening key figures who make decisions are invited to the American Embassy. He doesn’t shout there either. He says: ‘You know, mister, here you have bank accounts, here, here, and here … I’ve been here since 2006, I remember that there were three or four of such votes…’,” said Kilinkarov.
