BELGOROD, July 14. /TASS/. The Kremlin knows nothing about the man called Rinat Akhmetshin whom many mass media called mediator in the meeting between US President Donald Trump’s son and Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya.
"Nothing is known [about this person]," Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
He earlier said that the Kremlin was not familiar with lawyer Veselnitskaya either.
This week Donald Trump Jr admitted that he had met with lawyer Veselnitskya in June 2016 in New York. The president’s son does not deny that he agreed to the meeting because he had been promised damaging information about former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. President Trump said Thursday that nothing had happened from that meeting.
