KIEV (Reuters) – Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Thursday he had never met arrested businessmen Lev Parnas or Igor Fruman, who have been helping President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer investigate political rival Joe Biden.

They were arrested in the United States on charges of funneling foreign money to U.S. political candidates and a pro-Trump election committee.

Zelenskiy also said that Washington did not request any documents regarding Parnas and Fruman from him.
