The question on the relationship of long-period comets (LPCs) with trans-Neptunian objects (ТNОs) having the diameter more than 200 km is investigated. We analyze the distribution values of minimum orbit intersection distances (МОID) for 91 TNOs and 495 long-period comets (LPCs) with known initial orbits. The parameter t – distribution characterizing the level of redundancy МОID for each selected planetary body is prefaced. In the case when МОIDs values are less than 1 AU, 14 values of t have significance, greater than 0.95, and for the case MOIDs less than 0.5 AU, 6 values of t have significance, more than 0.95, and the ratio of t makes 56:35 and 50:41, accordingly. A reliable correlation no matter it is weak, between values t and I (inclination) is found out. The obtained these results indicate the assumption of possible relation of long-period comets with TNOs.
