MOSCOW, Russia. The Russian Foreign Minister expressed confidence that Kiev has something to tell about Paul Manafort’s position during the election campaign in the United States.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov advised to investigate the “Ukrainian trace” in the case of ex-head of the US presidential campaign of Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, through Ukraine.

– They found a “Ukrainian trace” in relation to Mr. Manafort and his employee. “The Ukrainian trace”, probably, needs to be investigated through Ukraine [and not by deflecting onto alleged Russian connections of former Ukrainian president, Yanukovich, for whom Mr. Manafort was a political adviser.] They too should have something to say about which position they took during the presidential campaign of the US president,” Lavrov said during a press conference.

Manafort and his business partner are facing accusations according to 12 legal articles. If the guilt is proven, then he may face up to 80 years in prison.
