“We will watch it, the colleagues have not recommended the platform yet. Anyway, we will try to record it and pass to the President, maybe he will have time to watch it on the weekend. Of course, we will include it into our digests,” Peskov said.

The debate preparation process started on April 3, when Zelensky replied to Poroshenko's invitation to participate in debates and put forward his conditions. He wanted to hold debates at Olympiysky Stadium. Poroshenko’s team said, “the President does not perform at stadiums”. A few hours later Poroshenko changed his mind and agreed to participate in the debates.
