Avenue Strategies Global is representing Yulia Tymoshenko, the former prime minister of Ukraine, under a six-month agreement that went into effect Feb. 28.

The firm, which has close ties with the Trump administration, provides strategic communications, government relations and outreach to media and US policymakers on behalf of Tymoshenko, who led Ukraine in 2005 and from 2007 through 2010.

It is positioning Tymoshenko as a supporter of democratic reforms, economic transparency, liberalism and the establishment of rule of law in Ukraine.

Barry Bennett, who ran Ben Carson’s unsuccessful presidential run and then advised Trump, launched ASG following the 2016 election with Corey Lewandowski, a Trump campaign alum. Lewandoski is no longer associated with the DC shop.

ASG’s consulting agreement is worth $65K per month.
