Employees of the US state Department avoided personal meetings with the leader of the Ukrainian party “Fatherland” Yulia Tymoshenko, because he believed it a Pro-Russian politician. This is stated in the book “the Room where it happened: memories of the White house,” former adviser to the US President for homeland security John Bolton transmits “Strenia”.

Bolton described his visit to Kiev during the last presidential elections in Ukraine. So, in 2018, the politician arranged a meeting with the representatives of Ukrainian authorities and the opposition. Bolton spoke with the leaders of parliamentary factions, among them Tymoshenko. However, a personal meeting with the leader of “Batkivshchyna” decided not to make because the state Department believed that it is close to Russia.

While at the time, Tymoshenko was considered the most likely candidate for the post of President in the event of defeat in the elections, Petro Poroshenko, said “Strenia”.

Earlier it was reported that in his book Bolton spoke about the position of the President of the United States Donald trump about preventing a Third world war. According to the American leader, a big benefit would be the Ukrainian leader, sympathetic to Russia.

Trump sent Bolton to resign in September 2019. The us leader explained that serious mistakes were made by EA. After that, he wrote a memoir, fragments of which have drawn criticism from Washington. The US President called the book a collection of lies, and the US government intends to sue the author of the court to deprive him of the proceeds of the sale — he is accused of disclosure of a huge quantity of secret information.
