Many of these emails appear to pertain to Deripaska.
Kilimnik, who remains in Russia, has been indicted on witness-tampering charges in relation to Manafort.
This is almost certainly a reference to Deripaska.
Kilimnik said “the guy” wanted to pass a message on to Manafort.
Following the July 29 email, the two men agreed to meet on Aug. 2, 2016, in New York at the Grand Havana Room.
But he said the sessions were ‘private visits,’ that were ‘in no way related to politics or the presidential campaign in the U.S.’”
"he discussed or may have discussed a Ukraine peace plan with Mr. Kilimnik on more than one occasion"
"Manafort “acknowledged” that he and Mr. Kilimnik met while they were both in Madrid."
Per an article by Medium, a Jet owned by Deripaska landed at Newark NJ on Aug 2, 2016.
It landed hours after the dinner concluded and took off back to Moscow the next evening. It is unclear who was aboard the jet.
“The next evening, Deripaska’s plane took off from Newark en route back to Moscow.
In Moscow the jet picked up Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko — and took him to Deripaska's private yacht in Norway.
"Deripaska can be heard explaining why relations between the United States and Russia are so tense, something he appears to attribute in part to a former official", Victoria Nuland.
CNN reported in September 2017 that Manafort had been under FISA surveillance since 2014 related to his work for Ukraine.
“As Manafort took the reins as Trump campaign chairman in May, the FBI surveillance technicians were no longer listening.”
"The FBI interest deepened last fall  because of intercepted communications between Manafort and suspected Russian operatives.”
Deripaska tried again in May - this time through his lawyer, Adam Waldman.
Deripaska’s offer was again rebuffed.
On Oct. 8, the U.S. govt moved to freeze Deripaska’s U.S. assets, including mansions in Manhattan and Washington.
One fact many are unaware of:
Steele - who appeared to have lobbied for Deripaska w/ Bruce Ohr - has known Deripaska since at least 2012, when he was hired by Waldman on behalf of Deripaska
