When asked at what point he sensed that there was a link between the freeze on US aid for Ukraine and the investigations Trump and his allies wanted, Zelensky dismissed the idea that there was a clear trade-off at play.

Zelenskiy also said that he has difficulty digesting Trump's continued claim that Ukraine is corrupt, a label that pre-dates Zelenskiy's time in office. "As for the United States, I would really want - and we feel this, it's true - for them to help us, to understand us, to see that we are a player in our own right, that they can not make deals about us with anyone behind our backs", he said.

December 2, 2019 (EIRNS)-Washington, D.C.'s flagship paper, the Washington Post, which honesty in advertising would be the Impeachment Post, devoted a front-page lead today to trying to strike up conflict between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky-part of the intelligence agencies' objective of sending Ukraine back to war against Russian Federation. "And in the event you are our strategic accomplice then you definately must not ever block any help". It's about fairness for me. "It's not a pair of quid pro quo, it's compatible a story in itself".

While speaking to reporters on Monday, President Trump argued the Zelensky interview offered him some sort of exoneration, telling reporters that the Ukrainian president said he did "absolutely nothing wrong".

"As for the United States, I would really want - and we feel this, it's true - for them to help us, to understand us, to see that we are a player in our own right, that they can not make deals about us with anyone behind our backs".

In Fukuoka, southwestern Japan, where the charity is based, the organization's spokesman Mitsuji Fukumoto lauded Nakamura's work. The Taliban, who along with the Islamic State group, operate across the province, denied involvement in Wednesday's attack.

During a July 25 phone call that's at the center of a whistleblower complaint that catalyzed the impeachment inquiry, Trump urged Zelensky to launch these investigations. "That's not my thing", Ukraine's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, said in some of his most pointed comments to date on the ongoing impeachment saga. "I don't trust anyone at all".

The four-way worldwide peace summit will feature the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany, with hopes that a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine would be found.

"Are we going to be sending massive amounts of money to a country and they're corrupt and they steal the money and that goes into everybody's bank account?"

In other words, the chaff thrown up by Trump and his allies in defense of his attempt to persuade Zelenskiy to announce two investigations that could help Trump's reelection bid - "Ukraine is corrupt, and Trump was just trying to protect taxpayers' money" - is at least as harmful to Ukraine's new housecleaning government as it is helpful to Trump. "But that signal from [the United States] is very important".
