Zelenskiy: Allies ‘can’t go blocking’ aid at time of war

02 Décembre, 2019, 22:36 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

On Monday, the President wrote that Zelensky's interview exonerated him.

Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky told Time that there was no "quid pro quo" demand from President Donald Trump involving military aid, but he was still not pleased that the aid was temporarily held up. Zelenskiy says, "That's not my thing".

Trump says that his infamous July 25 call with Zelensky was "perfect", but testimony from career US diplomat David Holmes indicated that the Ukrainians were cognizant that the American president wanted something from them. But Zelenskiy didn't go that far.

Zelenskiy, a former comedian turned politician, has been in office for barely six months and his conversations with Trump are the topic of intense scrutiny in the US, with their July 25 phone call at the center of the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Far from exonerating Trump, that sounded like the Ukrainian president was criticizing Trump for withholding US military aid for our vulnerable ally.

Confirmed: Two Gloucestershire branches of TSB will close
Following the closures, 65% of the country's population will live within four miles of a TSB branch, the company said. Wakefield's Normanton branch is among the closures and will close in May, it was confirmed this morning.

The key issue is whether Trump set up a "quid pro quo" - Latin for seeking one action in exchange for another - with Zelensky by holding back promised United States military aid for Ukraine until the Bidens were investigated. But you have to understand: "We're at war", he added, referring to his country's military conflict with Russian Federation and its proxies. "We're at war. If you're our strategic partner, then you can't go blocking anything for us", he was quoted by Time magazine as saying. I think that's just about fairness. It was one at the end of the interview, when Zelensky was asked the $300-million question: "When did you first sense that there was a connection between Trump's decision to block military aid to Ukraine this summer and the two investigations that Trump and his allies were asking for? Investments, banks, stakeholders, companies, American, European, companies that have global capital in Ukraine, it's a signal to them that says, 'Be careful, don't invest.' Or, 'Get out of there'". Politics is not an exact science.

"If these three issues are resolved, then we can see if everyone wants to put an end to the conflict".

He says he wants the U.S.to understand that Ukraine is now a "different country". They do. All branches of government were corrupted over many years, and we are working to clean that up. "But that signal from [the United States] is very important".

The scandal centres around a phone conversation on July 25 in which the Republican leader is suspected of putting pressure on Ukraine to launch investigations against former Democratic vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who worked for a Ukrainian gas company.
