Ex-Republican Party head Barbour to lobby U.S. for Ukraine

Barbour and BGR agreed in late December to a $50,000 a month retainer to “design and implement a comprehensive government affairs and business development strategy” for the Ukraine government – including “arranging meetings” with U.S. officials, according to a disclosure filed Jan. 1 with the Department of Justice.

BGR also said in the federal disclosure filing that it “seeks to strengthen U.S.-Ukrainian relations and encourage private U.S. businesses to invest in Ukraine.”
