Kolomoisky is a Ukrainian billionaire media and banking oligarch who, as new governor of a Russian-seized territory, financed mercenaries in eastern Ukraine that fought Russian-supported separatists after Paul Manafort’s client, President Viktor Yanukovych, was ousted in the Euromaiden revolution. “Jonathan Brunson, who worked at the U.S. embassy in Kiev and was senior analyst on Ukraine for the Crisis Group” said, “I think Kolomoisky is super-dangerous,” he said. “He is probably one of the most dangerous oligarchs because he’s one of the ones who’s willing to get his hands dirty.”  The Daily Beast
