MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. The chairman of the Russian Federation Council’s international affairs committee, Konstantin Kosachev, has dismissed as sheer nonsense the materials presented by BuzzFeed as a report by secret services to the effect he had had a meeting with Trump’s legal affairs adviser, Michael Cohen, last August.
"I just can repeat what Cohen said already - it’s sheer nonsense," Kosachev told TASS, adding that the US sources even misnamed his current position.
"They don’t even know that I left the State Duma five years ago, in March 2012," Kosachev said.
As follows from a report available on the BuzzFeed website, Michael Cohen held a meeting in Prague with some Kremlin officials, one of whom was allegedly identified as Kosachev.
The Russian legislator, according to the published document, acted as a mediator between the Russian presidential staff and the Trump team acting under the cover of the federal Russian agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation.

Cohen, too, denies the very instance of such a meeting. He dismissed the report published by BuzzFeed as a fake. On his Twitter he posted a photo of his passport with a brief commentary saying he had never been to Prague in his life.
