According to Poroshenko, it was a bad idea to take former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych's adviser to Trump's team.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Manafort was sentenced to 7,5 years in prison in Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election for conspiring to hide tens of millions of dollars earned through undisclosed lobbying for a Russia-aligned politician in Ukraine and conspiring to tamper with witnesses, as well as bank and tax fraud.
