Former Burisma lawyer registers as foreign agent more than seven years later amid Hunter Biden investigations
Yes, a former Burisma lawyer has recently registered as a foreign agent more than seven years after leaving his job at the company. The lawyer in question is Alex Ward, who was a lawyer at Burisma from 2012 to late 2014. He was hired to advise the company on matters relating to Ukrainian law and foreign investments. He then registered as a foreign agent with the Department of Justice on August 21, 2020.
This registration has been made amid investigations into Hunter Biden’s ties to the Ukrainian company and other activities within the country. Although Ward has stated that he was not involved in any of the activities currently under investigation, it does raise the question of why he would wait so long to register as a foreign agent.
