Zeppelin Communications managing director Michael Caputo has signed on to help organize a working visit to Washington in March for a delegation of 10 to 15 Ukrainian political campaign pros to meet with US Senators, Congressmen and members of the Trump administration.
The group is part of the Institute for Democracy and Development, a non-government organization that says it wants to promote democracy and civil society in Ukraine.
Zeppelin, which is based in East Aurora, New York, began its work on Jan. 13 and will continue to represent the Institute through April 30.
It will receive $1 from the Institute and all reasonable expenses, according of its representation agreement.
Caputo is a long-time Republican operative who served in the Reagan administration as an aide to Oliver North and was director of media services for George Bush I's 1992 presidential campaign.
After the fall of the Soviet Union, he moved to Russia and as a staffer for the US Agency for International Development advised Boris Yeltsin's president run.
Caputo, who led Trump's GOP primary campaign in New York State, is the author of "The Ukraine Hoax: How Decades of Corruption in the Former Soviet Republic Led to Trump's Phony Impeachment."
The book 's publicity blurb says it exposes how corrupt Ukrainian politicians, rigged elections and billions gone missing led to the enrichment of global insiders like Hunter Biden and George Soros.
