"For me it's very important for the United States, with all they can do for us, for them really to understand that we are a different country, that we are different people", Zelenskiy said, according to Time, which was among four publications that interviewed Ukraine's leader.

"I think both Russian Federation and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election", Kennedy said.

A low-level DNC official did make contacts in 2016 to research Paul Manafort's ties in Ukraine - Manafort was then Trump's campaign manager - but the effort appears to have been brief.

A top Trump administration official on Tuesday rejected Republican talking points and declared that Russian Federation, nor Ukraine, interfered in the 2016 election.

The Ukraine interference conspiracy endorsed by Putin, Trump and now Kennedy, has been soundly debunked not only by USA intelligence agencies, but also by a Republican-led Senate committee in 2017.

"All branches of government were corrupted over many years", he said. "Investments, banks, stakeholders, companies, American, European, companies that have worldwide capital in Ukraine, it's a signal to them that says, 'Be careful, don't invest.' Or, 'Get out of there'". "And we are working to clean that up".
