Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said it was unlikely his office would share its own transcript of his call with President Trump.

“It seems to me that we are at a high level when we do not need to do such a thing,” Zelensky said. “There are some things and nuances that I think should not go public. However, as you can see, there are no secrets. 

“They made it public, so it is public. That’s their own deal,” he said.

The Ukrainian leader, speaking to reporters at military drills organized by the country’s interior ministry, said his country is not opposed to opening an investigation into the claims against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, but rejects acting solely on the orders of another country.

There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden.

“We are not doing anything by commands. I can say it again — we are an independent country. We are not following any commands. We have only one command: to serve Ukraine,” Zelensky said, adding that Ukraine’s “independent law enforcement agencies are ready to investigate any sorts of proceedings if the law was broken.”
