Former U.S Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker testifying at the U.S. Congress said he tried to persuade U.S. President Donald Trump that the new Ukrainian leadership could be trusted. CNN reported that.
"Former U.S Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker explained in his opening statement that he сontacted Trump's Personal Attorney Rudy Giuliani with the leadership of Ukraine trying to persuade Giuliani and the President through the Attorney that Ukraine had got new authorities, which could be trusted," the message reads.
Volker said Trump "skeptically" treated Ukraine's leadership, which is understandable, according to him, taking into consideration the history of the country.
"He said that Ukraine is a corrupt country, full of horrible people," Volker commented on Donald Trump's words.
As we reported earlier, Kurt Volker discussed with Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani the meeting with Volodymyr Zelensky’s assistant Andriy Yermak.
The written exchanges of Giuliani and Volker showed that the special envoy talked to Trump’s personal lawyer about the Ukrainian issue and helped him to establish contact with people in Zelensky’s administration.
