On July 25, Trump and Zelensky had a phone conversation, which sparkled an enormous scandal. Eventually, the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress began an investigation against Trump within procedure of impeachment due to that conversation. Taking to the Ukrainian President, Trump mentioned the necessity to continue the investigation against Burisma, the gas production company in Ukraine; this is where Hunter Biden, the son of U.S. ex-Vice President Joe Biden used to work.

At that, Trump's administration suspended military aid for Ukraine. Congressmen from the Democrats want to find out whether the U.S. leader used military assistance as a leverage on Ukraine in order to secure his own political interests.
