President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky experienced the pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump before he became the president as Associated Press reported.

According to the news agency, in May Zelensky met with Advisor Andriy Yermak, Head of the President’s Office Andriy Bohdan and Head of Naftogaz-Ukraine Andriy Kobolev. They discussed the demand of Trump to hold an investigation in Biden case.

It should be noted that the meeting was dedicated to energy needs of Ukraine; however, most of the time they discussed how to hold the investigation on the request of Trump and not to be involved in the American elections. During the discussion, Zelensky was concerned that Trump would insist on the investigation against Biden.
