Manafort deputy may have had link to Russian intelligence (Financial Times)

When Paul Manafort, now Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, arrived in Ukraine a decade ago to advise future president Viktor Yanukovich, he relied on one man to be his ears and voice as an interpreter.

That figure was a Russian citizen, Konstantin Kilimnik. But, say several people who used to work with him, it was an open secret among the Manafort team and at a previous employer that Mr Kilimnik, an army-trained linguist, had a background in Russian military intelligence.

At the time, the connection was deemed unimportant — Mr Kilimnik was valued for his “excellent English”, these people say.

Today, with Mr Kilimnik still close to Mr Manafort, according to people who know both men, the links have taken on new significance. As Russian president Vladimir Putin likes to joke, there is no such thing as a former intelligence officer................

Here’s How Donald Trump’s Paul Manafort Helped Create Chaos in Ukraine

UBO Opinion: With every passing day, we learn more of the ugly details behind the work of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman Paul Manafort in support of Viktor Yanukovych, widely regarded as the most corrupt president elected by an independent Ukraine. The evidence is so overpowering that we suggest that no Ukrainian-American can in good conscience vote for Donald Trump. True, Trump was not involved in illegal activity in Ukraine but in this world we are judged by the company we keep. We are convinced that Trump knew – or should have known -- a considerable amount before he chose Manafort to take over his presidential campaign and chose to overlook Manafort’s many misdeeds in Ukraine – and against Ukraine...............

Anniversary of NKVD's monstrous crime: Some 100,000 Ukrainians died after Dnipro dam destruction in 1941. VIDEO+PHOTO

The Soviet Union suppressed the information about the tragic events in Zaporizhia, following the dynamiting of DniproHES - the largest hydroelectric power station on the Dnipro river.
As reported by Censor.NET citing 5 Channel, exactly 75 years ago, Aug. 18, 1941, the strategically important dam and plant was dynamited by retreating Red Army troops in 1941 after Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union. More than 20 tons of explosives were used for that purpose. As a result, according to different sources, about 100,000 people, mostly civilians from neighboring villages and towns, were killed. The Soviet military also fell victim to that operation. Additionally, the blast paralyzed the work of city's industrial enterprises.

A 165-meter long breach in the dam provoked a wave of several tens of meters high. It washed off the coastal city strip, Khortytsia island marshes and made its way through to the neighboring cities of Nikopol and Marhanets.

Later, the persons behind the dynamiting committed on Josef Stalin's order became known as Boris Yepov and Aleksei Petrovsky. Neither local population or military leadership were notified of the upcoming operation.

Interestingly, this is how the People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs (NKVD) wanted to obstruct the movement of Hitler's army. However, it hardly impeded the Wehrmacht. In addition, Russia's secret services disseminated information it was the Nazis who had blown up the dam.

According to Russian historian Boris Sokolov, the incident hurt the Red Army more than the Germans as many Soviet soldiers, who were crossing the dam at that moment, were killed. Moreover, a lot Soviet troops, who were deployed downstream, drowned, and those who survived had no other choice but to surrender to the enemy.

Subsequently, the organizers were declared spies and arrested by the Soviet counterintelligence. However, they were released following the intervention of their command. In Ukrainian/український
