H/T: Sara A. Carter
In his appearance on CNN, Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko dismissed the claims by Lev Parnas, saying he's never met him, doesn't trust him, and that the Ukrainian government knew the assistance Parnas is referring to in his claims was going to be reviewed, as it is at least twice annually every year.
"Frankly, I have not spoken with [Lev Parnas], and again, frankly, I don’t trust any word he is now saying," Prystaiko said in the interview.
"The assistance that he’s referring to was reviewed each and every year, annually at least twice, and half of the year and end of the year. so we knew this was going to be reviewed. Some times it would be cut because of some political understanding of what is to be done in Ukraine."

Totally agreed w/ #SteveBannon, we need forensics on this whole Parnas interview dropping just as Impeachment Articles finally transfer to the Senate - timing seems WAY too coincidental - was @SpeakerPelosi coordinating with @maddow & “Saint Lev”???...pic.twitter.com/MJndPQ4fDI— Steve Cortes (@CortesSteve) January 17, 2020
Democrats are suddenly obsessed with Lev Parnas, the Rudy Giuliani associate who was indicted on federal campaign charges last fall. https://t.co/cofW0YpFKh— DeepClips (@DeepClips) January 17, 2020
