Rinat Akhmetov - one of Ukraine's wealthiest men - said in a statement to CNN Thursday that allegations of contacts with Manafort and Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian-intelligence-linked associate of Manafort, were "false" and that Manafort's work for Akhmetov's System Capital Management (SCM) ended over a decade ago.
Asked if he wanted the special counsel's final report to be made public, Trump told reporters: "There's been no collusion whatsoever - we'll have to see".

Manafort earned millions from his Ukrainian political work over several years. Although the filing does not say whether the polling information was public or what was done with it, it raises the possibility that Russian Federation might have used inside information from the campaign as part of its effort to interfere with the election on Trump's behalf.
Prosecutors alleged that Manafort lied about providing Kilimnik with the polling data.
Some of the money came from Akhmetov through wire transfers between hidden bank accounts in Cyprus, Manafort's deputy Rick Gates testified in court. Trump did not elaborate and turned to another reporter with a question on a different topic. He also has a March 5 sentencing before Jackson in Washington for his guilty plea on conspiracy against the USA and conspiracy to obstruct justice. He has ties to the Party of Regions, a political party in Ukraine that is aligned with Russian interests. Manafort denied that he was trying to hide the meetings he had with Kilimnik, who has also been charged in Mueller's wide-ranging investigation, and instead had just forgotten about them until he'd been presented evidence to refresh his memory. President Trump denies any campaign collusion with Russian Federation. A spokesman for the special counsel declined comment.
