Manafort’s flight records in and out of Ukraine, which McClatchy obtained from a government source in Kyiv, and interviews with more than a dozen people familiar with his activities, including current and former government officials, suggest the links between Trump’s former campaign manager and Russia sympathizers run deeper than previously thought.
Moreover, Manafort flew to Kyiv 19 times over 20 months even after Yanukovych fled the country, working for pro-Russian Opposition Block party.
It’s worth pointing out that Russia President Vladimir Putin said that Russia had nothing to do with Paul Manafort.
Paul Manafort is under house arrest now, as he is charged with twelve separate cases, including violations of federal tax law, money laundering and whether he appropriately disclosed his foreign lobbying. conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. None of the charges, however, mention his part in meddling in the presidential election by Russia.
The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine investigates two cases involving Paul Manafort. The first one is about the embezzlement of the funds of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine and second concerns the materials on the black ledger.
