One of the daughters of Paul Manafort, the ex-counselor to former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, suspects her father could have played certain part in the murders of Euromaidan protesters in Kyiv in February 2014.
The Independent wrote that with the reference to a set of messages that sisters Andrea and Jessica Manafort exchanged from autumn 2012 through autumn 2016. That part of their correspondence was hacked and released into the Web.
In one of the messages, Andrea wrote: ‘Don’t fool yourself; that money we have is blood money’.
According to the outlet, ‘Ms Manafort may have been referring to her father’s alleged role in the February 2014 Kiev police shootings which resulted in the death of approximately 100 people deemed as pro-West protesters’.
Another message sent by Andrea said the following: ‘Do you know whose strategy that was to cause that, to send those people out and get them slaughtered?’
Yevheniya Zakrevska, the lawyer of the families of the Heavenly Hundred (the common name for the deceased protesters who lost their lives during brutal fights in Kyiv in February 2014, - 112 International) said she’d hoped that Manafort ‘will explain these charges’.
Paul Manafort is Donald Trump's former campaign manager and the ex-counselor to the ousted ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. He worked with the latter since 2004 until Yanukovych's escape to Russia in 2014.
