Zelensky, "US President Donald Trump forced him to investigate the phone call about Biden," again rejecting the claims, "No one can not give us orders. We are an independent country. We are open to the investigation, but it has nothing to do with me. Our independent institutions, any ready to investigate the violation of the law ".
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) newspaper suggested in a telephone conversation with Trump in July that Zelensky wanted an investigation into the activities of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden's son in Ukraine.
Trump, on the allegations, argued that his meeting with Zelensky was entirely procedural, and the White House published the transcript.
The US press wrote that Trump said he would only help the Ukrainian leader if he investigated Biden and his family.
Trump said that $ 400 million in aid to Ukraine had been suspended before the phone call.
US President Trump's Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker also resigned because of the Ukrainian crisis that led to the dismissal investigation.
