US diplomats pushed Kiev to investigate Biden’s case

21
Senior U.S. diplomats have called on the newly elected president of Ukraine to investigate the family of Joseph Biden, one of Donald Trump’s leading candidates in the upcoming elections, in exchange for a potential visit to Washington and a meeting with the American president. This follows from the messages published by the investigative commission of the US House of Representatives after the 10-hour interrogation of one of the diplomats, Kurt Walker, who resigned as special representative for Ukraine, AP news agency reported.




In the morning of July 25, before the planned telephone talks between Donald Trump and Vladimir Zelensky, Volker wrote: “Rumors in the White House: assuming that President Z convinces Trump of his commitment to the investigation / will get to the bottom of what happened in 2016, we will determine the date of the visit in Washington".

The phone call went well.

- Andrei Yermak, adviser to the Ukrainian president, wrote in a message to Volker later that day. Yermak proposed several dates when the presidents of the two states could meet in September.

USA: “We shook the faith of Ukrainians in us”


However, the visit’s planning was stalled when adviser Zelensky tried to fix the date of the meeting with Trump before issuing a statement of the investigation. As a result, the parties agreed that a briefing would be convened before the upcoming visit, within the framework of which a reset of relations between Ukraine and the United States would be announced, within which Zelensky would make a statement about the investigation of Burisma.

Walker and two other diplomats - William Taylor, Chargé d'Affaires at the US Embassy in Ukraine, and Gordon Sondland, US Ambassador to the European Union - were discussing a statement that Zelensky would support the investigation. As the negotiations progressed, Sondland said Trump “really wants to get a result.”

Then Trump suspended military aid to Ukraine for 250 million dollars. Taylor, an experienced senior diplomat at the Ukrainian embassy, ​​expressed his concern and asked if the money would be held until Ukraine agreed to Trump’s demands.

Are we talking about security assistance and the White House meeting due to investigations?

- He wrote.

This is my nightmare scenario.

- Taylor wrote to his colleagues a few days later. The diplomat said that by denying Ukraine assistance, "we have already shaken their faith in us."

      Zelensky’s environment is mainly people affiliated with the Democrats. Only after cleansing them will the clown finally lie under Trump.

    Let Mr. Taylor not worry so - we in Ukraine are not at all offended for this delay in the lethal "aid"!
    Now, if the Americans also demanded all military assistance to the Banderonazi junta back and did not go into the affairs of Ukraine with their dirty paws, this would be a real step towards the lost (after the pro-American anti-national coup d'état - "Euromaidan", stimulated by American "cookies"!) trust!

      The Americans will not agree to this, it is easier for them to "pass" Trump than to miss such a fat piece as Ukraine ..

        hi
        This "pie" is not that fat, but the fallen off part of this pie does not give rest to the fucking American warriors:

        I wonder how they would react to the proposal of the Russian Federation to organize a base in Miami or in "Russian California". The mere intention of Russia and Venezuela to build submarines in the last base for the Russian Federation made the US establishment jump out of its cowards.

    And he was not not under Trump. The place next to him (even at the toilet) was inherited by the piglet.

    It is somehow strange that this Taylor will not say that these are Biden scams that shook faith in Ukraine.

    Communication with Kiev harms a career.
    Who does not believe - ask Volker, Biden, Jovovich, Clinton, Nuland, .......

    who cares who pushed Ukraine to find out if the corruption component or conflict of interest in the situation with the son of Biden?
    they didn’t force anyone to falsify the results of the investigation, or hide information.
    figuring out the real state of things is an undemocratic process?
    or is it not democratic to investigate democrats?)
    sorry for the involuntary pun

    There is a wonderful Ukrainian proverb - the pans are fighting, and at the lackeys forelocks are cracking. In the process, Banderland was appointed to the post of this same serf.

    Zugzwang is ready for Ze, it remains to wait a little. Potroshenko climbed too recklessly with Clinton’s support in the elections, and now they are looking for someone in the USA who will be responsible for this. great democracy)

      That the president, the events in Ukraine have clearly shown that for a pittance they are not like some kind of president, they are ready to break the country ... and the worst thing is that it is the "Ukrainian version" of "democracy" that "climbs" into our streets
