Zelensky says Ukraine getting ?tired? of Trump scandal

KIEV: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Tuesday that his country is tired of questions related to the Trump scandal, amid a critical week of public impeachment hearings in Washington. We have our country, we have our independence, we have our own problems, he complained after a press conference in Kiev with visiting Czech prime minister Andrej Babis. Hearings began last week in Washington into whether US President Donald Trump ordered to freeze US military aid to Ukraine in an effort to get Kiev to launch investigations against potential 2020 election rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter. On Tuesday an American reporter pressed Zelensky on whether he had been ready to launch a probe into Biden s son s ties to Ukraine energy company Burisma, as a concession to Trump. Everyone in Ukraine is so tired of Burisma, Zelensky said, before quickly leaving the room full of reporters. Zelensky, a 41-year-old comedian who was elected President of Ukraine in April, has found himself at the centre of the impeachment scandal in the US after his phone call with Trump resulted in a probe into whether the US president had pressured his Ukrainian counterpart to further his own personal agenda.
