Firtash and Kolomoisky offered legal assistance 

They reflected that the US was leveraging its political power to seek gains from legally vulnerable foreign citizens. According to Firtash, who is allegedly accused of bribery and racketeering and is facing extradition to the United States was provided with legal assistance by one of Giuliani’s associates to resolve his matter with the Justice Department. Firtash, had close contacts with the Kremlin, the sole reason why he was asked for assistance by Giuliani on his ‘dirt-digging mission’. He said that the offer to provide him with two lawyers close to Trump was made in the month of June. He met Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who were Soviet-businessmen and were also involved in Giuliani’s dealings. Parnas’ lawyer, Joseph A. Bondy, confirmed the meeting and further added that Firtash was encouraged to assist Giuliani to find compromising information against Joe Biden in return for dropping the charges. 

According to Firtash, he never provided Giuliani with any information about Bidens and never financed the search for it. He further said he was “sucked into the US fight”.
