The Mystery Man Spent $ 70,000 For Zelensky’s Promotion
The media spotted a lawyer from Washington (D.C.) who lobbied for the image of Vladimir Zelensky on his own initiative.
Marcus Cohen is not on any social media, and his account on LinkedIn doesn’t give any information. His photos are not available. In his interview for Radio Svoboda, Cohen jokingly admitted that he was “pretty hot and tempting.”
Leading analysts and political consultants from Ukraine earlier insisted on having no idea about Marcus Cohen’s existence, who, on a personal initiative, started investing Zelensky’s headquarters, spending $70,000 for the first round of Ukraine’s elections. This information initially appeared on the US Department of Justice website in accordance with the Foreign Agent Act.
Vladimir Zelensky denied the fact of a mysterious patron in the United States.
“Our team did not seek for any lobbying companies or agencies to the visit of our representatives to the US. We have no contract with Signal Group, ” – such a statement appeared on Zelensky’s headquarters website.
It got about that Cohen is 45 years old, he is from Washington, DC, and he owns the lobbying company Signal Group Consulting. Cohen worked at the U.S. Department of Industry and Security Bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce, then at Sandler Law Firm, (he quit in 2018), and then he started an individual law practice. Cohen told reporters that on his part, helping Zelensky in the election race was an act of his goodwill. He thought that would be right.
