Head of the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SACPO) Nazar Kholodnytskiy has said there is no signature of the ousted Ukrainian president's former adviser Paul Manafort on any page of the "black accounts" of Yanukovych's Regions Party, and information about his fault is just PR technology.

"We have found no evidence of Manafort's involvement, I just state the facts. There is no evidence regarding Manafort," Kholodnytskiy said.
