The media close to the government announced today with excitement that Lulzim Basha will be the rapporteur of the Council of Europe
for the confiscation of Russian assets.
"This is also a great achievement of the government appointing as a reporter for the Council of Europe, an MP
requesting blocking of Russian assets in Europe, meanwhile that here in Albania, the deputy is accused having spent Russian money in the campaign” scoffed Ylli Manjani.
In fact, American intelligence has published a report, which explicitly states that Lulzim Basha received half a million dollars from the Russians.
The news was first reported by VOA, which cited a US government official. After the Voice of America and the BBC, the national media of Great Britain has dedicated an important space to the Russian funding for Basha in 2017.
"Russia has secretly spent more than $300 million since 2014 to influence politicians in more than 24 countries, according to the claim raised by the US," the BBC reports.
The article emphasizes that it is about a figure of 500,000 dollars that was transferred to the Democratic Party in 2017.
At that time, the blue headquarters was run by Lulzim Basha, who has been publicly accused many times of the "Muzin" file.
Meanwhile, the American magazine "Mother Jones" also wrote that American intelligence believes that Russia has supported Lulzim Basha.
According to this magazine, Basha's file was closed under dark circumstances in Albania.
