    Oh, wow.

    Then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton meets with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in Munich, Germany, on February 4, 2012. (Photo credit: State Department.)

    Ukraine’s embattled rulers may have a clique of connected lobbyists swarming Congress, the State Department or even the White House pleading the case of President Viktor Yanukovich, whose tilt toward Vladimir Putin’s Russia has launched three months of protests. But because of a change to disclosure requirements for agents of foreign powers, the public may never know.

    Citing the work of Ukrainian investigative journalist Sergil Leschenko and Reuters, the Daily Beast reportedthat the European Center for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU) — a Brussels-based nonprofit founded by members of Yanukovych’s Party of Regions — hired the Podesta Group and the International Government Relations Group to lobby in Washington on U.S.-Ukraine relations.
