Non-partisan MP Andriy Derkach has published a new series of recordings of the telephone conversation between former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and U.S. ex-Vice President Biden, during which the politicians show very warm relations and concerns about Trump's behavior towards Ukraine. Biden called Poroshenko the "father of the nation" and compared Trump to a dog, Strana reports.
The conversation between Joe Biden and Petro Poroshenko took place on November 16, 2016 (the time when Donald Trump was elected President of the United States). In addition to discussing Trump, Poroshenko asked Biden to support the issue of visa-free travel with the EU for Ukraine, which, according to him, could be "sold" to the Ukrainian people.
Poroshenko: I told him about a lot of things that President Obama and the current administration were doing (laughs). Honestly, I was expecting a cooler conversation. But he was quite sincere and warm.
Biden: Well, look, this guy, (speaks in English), he is a dog running after a car on the road. A bad dog will run after the car along the road. (This saying is in English). He finally chased it. He does not know what to do, he does not even know what this car is made of or what is even in it. So we have a chance to make him a hero.
As we reported earlier, transcripts of e-mails from employees of the US Embassy in Kyiv, received at the request of the human rights organization Judicial Watch, indicate that the embassy tracked 13 Twitter accounts in the spring of 2019.
