Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky denies that the US President Donald Trump has pushed him to investigate one of his rivals in the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, saying that he lacks such powers in accordance with the Constitution.

“I was never put pressure and there were no conditions to hold a summit with Trump or agree to sell weapons in return”, – Zelensky said in an interview with Kyodo News in his office in Kiev when he first spoke to foreigners.

Media reports of the allegations that triggered the Washington impeachment crisis.

The Ukrainian prosecutor’s office will consider any requests from its American colleagues for cooperation in conducting investigations “in accordance with our laws,” if they are conducted on the basis of international law, Zelensky said.
