At least four people one way or another pledged the story of Cohen.

The payment was allegedly organized by the middlemen who acted on behalf of Poroshenko. At the same time, the BBC reports, Cohen was not registered as a representative of Ukraine, which is required by U.S. law.

The source reported that Poroshenko in his former assistant asked a Deputy about the help of such meetings. Through his connections in the Jewish charitable organizations of new York came to Michael Cohen. For its services, the lawyer allegedly received 400 thousand dollars.

Another source of the British newspaper confirmed this information. But he said that the lawyer was paid a total of 600 thousand dollars.

Sam Cohen during a conversation with BBC journalist has denied the information that allegedly received money for organizing the meeting Poroshenko and trump. In the presidential Administration of Ukraine, according to the British newspaper, refused to comment. The AP also said on TSN questions about the case.

“The agenda of the White house indicated that Poroshenko will meet in the format “drop in” in the oval office with trump, who met with the team. This is what was agreed through official channels. Cohen paid for that Poroshenko got more than a few humiliating short minutes for a quick conversation and a handshake,” the BBC quoted its source.

The source claims that the negotiations about the format of the meeting lasted until early morning of the day of the visit.

According to the BBC, “the Ukrainian side” was very angry due to the fact that Cohen took hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars for what, as they thought, cannot provide.

“Until the last moment, the Ukrainian leader was not sure that he can avoid the humiliation. Entourage Poroshenko was shocked at how dirty everything was organized (through Cohen),” writes the British edition.

The BBC writes that Poroshenko wanted a meeting with trump because of what happened during the election campaign of the future President of the United States.

In August 2016, the New York Times published a document allegedly confirms that the campaign Manager of the trump, by Paul Manafort, received millions of dollars from Pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. It was a page from the so-called “black cash Desk of the Party of regions”, which was previously reviewed by the analyst.

The BBC notes that the document was allegedly handed over to the newspaper of the National anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), and finally the publication of the New York Times led to the resignation of Manafort.

Several Ukrainian sources, the British newspaper said that Poroshenko authorized the leak, hoping for victory in the presidential election of the opponent of trump, Hillary Clinton.

The BBC claims that one week after Poroshenko’s visit to the U.S. the NEB announced that it will no longer conduct investigations against Manafort. The publication notes that the investigation was not discontinued, and transferred from the NEB to the Prosecutor General.

As stressed by the BBC, none of the sources did not say that trump asked Poroshenko to “kill” the investigation against Manafort. The publication does not exclude that it could do Cohen.

One of the sources of force in Kiev, said that Poroshenko gave the US President a “gift” – made clear that Ukraine will not find any evidence that the chief of staff trump cooperated with Russia.

“Poroshenko knew what to do, otherwise it would be spitting in the face of trump’s,” the BBC quoted another of his interlocutor.
