Boom : Manafort intended for polling data to go to 2 Ukrainian oligarchs who owed him millions

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/09/politics/manafort-ukrainian-oligarchs/index.html

Serhiy Lyovochkin and Rinat Akhmetov, two Ukrainian oligarchs who had paid Paul Manafort for years for his political work in their country, were the intended recipients of the American polling data that Manafort shared with Konstantin Kilimnik during the 2016 presidential campaign, a person familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has been circling Lyovochkin and Akhmetov's dealings with Manafort for a while, as they were both key, generous backers of Manafort's Ukrainian lobbying work, prosecutors said at Manafort's financial fraud trial last summer.
The Justice Department initially asked Mueller to look into the pro-Russian Ukrainians' ties to Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, because of how they may relate to other allegations of Russian coordination with the Trump campaign.

Akhmetov is one of the richest men in Ukraine and bankrolled the Party of Regions, a Ukrainian political party aligned with Moscow that Manafort worked to bolster. Akhmetov reportedly introduced Manafort to the party's leader, Viktor Yanukovych, and they embarked on a decade-long partnership that saw Yanukovych win the presidency and major victories at the polls. Manafort earned $60 million for his work in Ukraine, and was convicted last year of financial fraud after hiding the money overseas to avoid paying US taxes.
Some of the money came from Akhmetov through wire transfers between hidden bank accounts in Cyprus, Manafort's deputy Rick Gates testified in court.
Another witness, testifying against Manafort under oath, said Manafort and Akhmetov "knew each other well."

3. When money is owed, Russians do not like to be crawfshed.....


You skip out on paying debts owed to Russians, they will come after your family first, our pets, then save you for last. They are ruthless.

Paul Manafort has to be scared shitless. He should have thought about that a long time ago.

5. Never thought we would see the day

when people facing Justice were more afraid of Foreign Mob Hits than of their own Countries Mobsters.

Just can not imagine what security must be like for Manafort,even though he is supposed to be in protective custody.
