Special Attorney Robert Mueller, who is dealing with the case of an alleged Russia’s interference into the U.S. elections, observes the list of the Ukrainian politicians and businessmen who were present at the inauguration of the American President Donald Trump, as The New York Times reported.

According to the news agency, Mueller’s team has questioned several people trying to define the way the Ukrainians received invitations to Trump’s inauguration. Americans also want to know whom they met and what they discussed.

Resources say dozens of Ukrainian officials and businessmen were present at the event, including the people’s deputies Sergiy Kivalov, Vitaliy Khomutynnyk, and Boryslav Bereza. Former member of Ukraine’s Parliament Andriy Artemenko and businessman Pavlo Fuks attended the inauguration as well.

As we reported, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty on eight counts of financial crimes. After a 16-day trial, Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts, and two counts of bank fraud. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on the remaining 10 counts, and the judge declared a mistrial on those charges.

Manafort faces a maximum of 80 years in prison. He faces a second criminal trial next month in Washington on seven other charges brought by the special counsel, including obstruction of justice, failure to register as a foreign agent and conspiracy to launder money. 

Paul Manafort is charged with laundering money and evading taxes over ten years of cooperation with former Ukrainian leaders. Previously, an investigation team released over 300 documents, which reveal the details of Manafort's cooperation with the currently disbanded Party of Regions - the-then pro-presidential and ruling political force in Ukraine.
