The former head of Donald Trump's campaign headquarters, Paul Manafort, demanded that the photos with him and former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych be removed from the case. This is reported by Bloomberg.
The photos were taken during the work of Paul Manafort in Ukraine, when he helped Viktor Yanukovych during the election campaign. Defenders of Manafort believe that these materials are inappropriate and biased to the progress of the trial.
However, the team of special prosecutor Robert Mueller stated that these documents better show how Manafort earned money in Ukraine, and the people who are present on photographs are those who transferred money to the political consultant.
In the pictures next to Manafort, you can see Viktor Yanukovych, during the filming of commercials.

We recall, the investigation team of the FBI's special prosecutor Robert Mueller presented more than 300 documents in the case of Paul Manafort. In particular, it is said about the cooperation of Manafort with the Party of Regions of Ukraine and the Opposition Bloc.
