At height of Russia tensions, Trump campaign chairman Manafort met with business associate from Ukr



At height of Russia tensions, Trump campaign chairman Manafort met with business associate from Ukraine

In August, as tension mounted over Russiaís role in the U.S. presidential race, Donald Trumpís campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, sat down to dinner with a business associate from Ukraine who once served in the Russian army.

Konstantin Kilimnik, who learned English at a military school that some experts consider a training ground for Russian spies, had helped run the Ukraine office for Manafortís international political consulting practice for 10 years.

At the Grand Havana Room, one of New York Cityís most exclusive cigar bars, the longtime acquaintances ďtalked about bills unpaid by our clients, about [the] overall situation in Ukraine . . . and about the current news,Ē including the presidential campaign, according to a statement provided by Kilimnik, offering his most detailed account of his interactions with the former Trump adviser.

Kilimnik, who provided a written statement to The Washington Post through Manafortís attorney, said the previously unreported dinner was one of two meetings he had with Manafort on visits to the United States during Manafortís five months working for Trump. The first encounter was in early May 2016, about two weeks before the Trump adviser was elevated to campaign chairman.
