Former partner of Paul Manafort Rick Gates at court said that Manaforth’s Ukrainian clients (Akhmetov, Levochkin, Tigipko, Klyuev, Kolesnikov) paid millions of dollars by transferring funds from Cyprus accounts to Manafort’s accounts, also in Cyprus. He said this during a court hearing on Manafort’s tax crimes, The Washington Post reports.
Meanwhile, the former partner of Manafort confirmed that they were aware that they violated the law.
On July 31, the United States began a trial against Manafort, who was charged with money laundering, tax evasion for nearly 10 years of cooperation with former Ukrainian leadership.
The investigation believes that Manafort earned more than $ 60 million in political consultant work in Ukraine.
