The Ukrainian President Volodimir Selenski has denied that it has given between him and US President, Donald Trump-fixing investigations against the democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
"I have not spoken with US President Trump, even in this posture – I'll give you this – you give it to me," said Selenski in a Monday in the German magazine "Spiegel" published the Interview. The head of state defendant of a image damage suffered by his country due to the Ukraine affair of the U.S. President.
"I don't want us to act like beggars. The United States is something of a Signal for the world – for the International monetary Fund and the world Bank for Europe," said Selenski. If the United States said that the Ukraine is corrupt, then it was "a very hard Signal", - stressed the President. "I don't want the Ukraine forces is a figure on the chessboard of the big that you can push us around, us, advance, or may Achern."
The so-called Ukraine-affair between the US President had been triggered by revelations of a controversial phone call between Selenski and Trump in June (read here). The US Democrats accuse Trump of abuse of power, because he had demanded that Ukraine investigation against his possible counterparties in the presidential election of 2020, Biden. As a means of pressure the President is said to have used, among other things, a military aid of nearly $ 400 million to Kiev, the week-long back was held.
Damped expectations of Putin-Meeting
Selenski was reflected in the "mirror" at the upcoming Ukraine-summit in the so-called Normandy Format in Paris, during which he will meet for the first time on Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin. Hopes for a far-reaching de-escalation of the conflict with Moscow curbed Selenski. He would focus at the summit on the issues of prisoner exchange and the ceasefire.
Ukraine will engage in in addition "never" on elections in the separatist-controlled areas, as long as the "illegal military units" will not be pulled out of there, - said Selenski. Elections belong to the claims of the Pro-Russian rebels, the parts of Eastern Ukraine.
At the Ukraine summit in Paris, the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French state take part in the chief Emmanuel Macron. It is the first of four summits in this Format since 2016.
Recently, there had been signs of a relaxation of tension between Kiev and Moscow. Both sides agreed to a prisoner exchange and troop withdrawal from three locations along the Front. In addition, Russia gave back three Ukrainian naval ships, which it had seized a year ago.
Selenski had declared in the presidential campaign ending the war in Eastern Ukraine as a top priority. Since the beginning of the conflict in 2014 13'000 people were killed. (sda)
