Ukraine Wants To Question Manafort

Ukraine Wants To Question Manafort

Ukraine has requested from the United States a chance to question Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager, who was recently indicted for money laundering and other financial crimes. The United States Department of Justice, as of yet, has not responded to the request.

“Prosecutors also want U.S. authorities to share any evidence they might have pertaining to an ongoing criminal investigation of a former justice minister, said Serhiy Horbatyuk, prosecutor for special investigations,” wrote RFE/RL.

“Yes, of course, we will do it. We are preparing a request and will ask about [U.S. officials] conducting an interrogation or sharing documents,” Horbatyuk said by phone on November 2.

What Is Trump Doing In Ukraine?

Oleksandr Lavrynovych was the former Ukrainian justice minister under the government of Viktor Yanukovych, who was forced from power in the 2014 Maidan Revolution. Lavrynovych is accused of channeling government funds to a U.S. law firm to develop a legal opinion for Yanukovych actions against former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who was jailed in a widely believed political move.

Manafort was no longer working for Yanukovych during the Maidan crisis.

“We want to find out Manafort’s role in it,” Horbatyuk said of the Lavrynovych case. “We sent a request for questioning representatives of the firm and also Manafort. We also asked about copies of documents [pertaining to the case],’ wrote RFEFL.
