Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andrey Artemenko said on his page in Facebook about the death of businessman Alex Oronov, “bound by ties of kinship” with the lawyer of the President of the United States Donald trump. According to him, after the publication in The New York Times article about the plan of lifting of sanctions with Russia, his life “turned into hell”.
“And he died not from old age, not from disease, not accident, and from… the intervention of the American journalists in his life!!!” — wrote Artemenko.

According to the publication, the document, suggesting a “peace plan for Russia and Ukraine”, promoted legal counsel to trump Michael Cohen and his business partner Felix Sutter, and Artemenko was named as its author.
One of the proposals Artemenko was to hold a nationwide referendum on the question of the transfer of Crimea is leased by Russia for 30-50 years. The plan also anticipated a return of Donbass in the Ukraine, after which Russia, according to Artemenko, should lift sanctions.

“Alex was a kinsman Michael Cohen and it was he who organized including my introduction and my meeting with Michael Cohen. And from that moment his life as well as mine, has turned into hell! … He died from overexertion, from nerves, from injustice, from resentment, suspicion, grief misunderstanding”, — he wrote.
According to him, the Parties led a successful business in Ukraine established it as an agricultural holding, the UPC (baryshivka grain company), which after bringing “the Swedish investment” was renamed the company Grain Alliance. Artemenko called Eronova his partner, a mentor and a friend.
