Baku – APA. Paul Manafort, former adviser to fugitive Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, will take over as campaign manager for the United States Republican Party's presidential candidate Donald Trump, Reuters reports.

Trump's press office confirmed that ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was fired. Donald Trump fired Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager who helped him win Republican presidential nominating contests but clashed with other advisers on how to appeal to the broader general electorate, several people with knowledge of the decision said on Monday.

Trump's decision to fire his manager came in part at the urging of his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, who have powerful advisory roles in the campaign, the two people in contact with Trump aides said.

As Quartz writes, Paul Manafort is a strategist with three decades of Republican conventions under his belt, who has also worked for some unsavory international clients. That roster includes pro-Russian former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych who was deposed in a popular revolution in 2013.
