Is Rudy Giuliani’s meeting with Dmitry Torner an absolute low in GOP politics?

Rudolph Giuliani has gone through smelliest dumpsters to help his boss

Every nation or a political power has it’s lowest point in history. It seems that GOP has reached it in 2019, when the honorable lawyer, ex-mayor and the acting US president confidant Rudy Giuliani met Ukrainian scum oligarchy in an attempt to mine some dirt on Joe Biden. One of old trusty Rudy counterparts was particularly interesting. It is Dmitry (Dmytro) Torner – an alleged fugitive Moldovan criminal who arranged the meeting in Vienna and Paris. I’m certain that Giuliani washed his hands these evenings with special care and comprehension.

Is Rudy Giuliani's meeting with Dmitry Torner an absolute low in GOP politics?

It’s quite a low for Giuliani and US politics in general. It’s quite high for Torner, who presumably was indicted for theft of mobile phones in Moldova.

In March 2003 and February 2004, Nekrasov (the true name of Torner) was sentenced to 11 years in prison for embezzlement of property on a particularly large scale and fraud.

RISE Moldova journalists obtained court sentences, according to which Nekrasov was sentenced to 11 years in prison in 2003 and 2004.

And that is what is known about Dmitry Torner, according to the local press.

One day before the July 21 parliamentary election, Ukraine’s Central Election Commission disqualified a candidate whom detectives identified as a wanted Moldovan criminal with nine Ukrainian passports issued under different names.

According to the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), 39-year-old Dmytro Torner, No. 44 on the Opposition Platform – For Life party list, turned out to be Moldovan citizen Dmitry Nekrasov, who is wanted at home for escaping from prison.

Starting in 2007, Nekrasov reportedly forged identity documents to illegally get hold of five Ukrainian domestic passports under different names as well as four Ukrainian international passports for travel abroad, the SBU said. At the same time, he has never been a legal Ukrainian citizen, the State Migration Service confirmed.

Opposition Platform – For Life did not comment on the incident.

The pro-Russian party, which polls second for parliament, nominated a number of candidates with tarnished reputations and embroiled in corruption investigations.

Torner’s candidacy page at the Central Election Commission’s website lists him as the head of the analytics department at Khim Trade, an electricity and gas distribution company that belongs to oligarch Dmytro Firtash.

Firtash is a friend and business partner of Serhiy Lovochkin, the former chief of staff of disgraced President Viktor Yanukovych and one of the leaders of Opposition Platform – For Life.

Little is known about Torner’s past.

According to an investigation by journalist Oksana Denysova published on the Telegram channel The Newsroom on July 19, Chisinau-born Nekrasov was sentenced to 11 years in prison for embezzlement, fraud, and drug dealing in his home country in 2003. However, a year later, he escaped from prison and fled to Ukraine.

He allegedly obtained his first Ukrainian passport in 2007 under his mother’s maiden name. In the following years, he used his first and second wives’ surnames before becoming Torner in 2019.
