Manafort intended for polling data to go to Ukrainian oligarchs Serhiy Lyovochkin & Rinat Akhmetov - Manafort wrote in an August '16 email he expected $2.4 million payment in Nov 2016 for work done in Ukraine - from backers including Lyovochkin & Akhmetov
In addition to hiring Paul Manafort in Ukraine and working together for over a decade, Rinat Akhmetov has several business ties with Alex Shnaider who was Donald Trump's partner in developing the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto
In '09 Alex Shnaider & Eduard Shyfrin's company Midland Resources sold Ukrainian Zaporizhstal steel mill for $850 mil in '09 financed by VEB, $40mil from sale was earmarked for Trump Toronto & @tomburgis reported $50 mil penalty was owed to Rinat Akhmetov
Although Shnaider & Shyfrin sold the Zaporizhstal steel mill in '09 and paid Rinat Akhmetov a $50 mil termination penalty on his bid to purchase the mill - in 2011 Akhmetov company Metinvest bought 50% of Zaporzhstal with option to purchase the other 50%
Rinat Akhmetov had another business deal with Alex Shnaider during the period Shnaider partnered on Trump Toronto

Shnaider and Shyfrin's Midland Group co-owned Ukrainian supermarket chain Amstor and sold their shares to Rinat Akhmetov's Smart Holding
Smart-Holding which had done Amstor deal with Shiyfrin/Shnaider was owned by Vadim Novinsky, a partner of Rinat Akhmetov. Novinsky connects to someone else in the Trump-Russia story - he was reportedly involved in a Ukrainian ethanol deal w/Michael Cohen
