President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin said that Russia has nothing to do with the former head of the presidential campaign of Donald Trump Paul Manafort, RIA Novosti reported.

"As for Mr. Manafort, he is also associated with Russia, but the only thing that connects him with us is - being the owner of the American PR agency, he signed contracts and as a businessman he also worked in this area, including with President Yanukovych. But what does this have to do with Russia? No, there's nothing here, just empty chatter and the desire to use any clue to fight the incumbent president, "he told reporters.

We recall that in the US Manafort and his partner Gates are accused of 12 episodes. The prosecution incriminates them with conspiracy against the US, conspiracy to launder money, acting as a foreign agent without the necessary registration, as well as not reporting on accounts in foreign banks. Also it is a question of possible business relations of Manafort with the ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
