In a brand new interview just released just Monday morning, Volodymyr Zelensky cleared things up once and for all.

The Ukrainian President who is in the middle of the scathing impeachment process surrounding President Donald Trump, admitted that he never discussed “quid pro quo” with President Donald Trump, explaining again that there was no link in Military Aid in exchange for an investigation on corrupt former Vice President Joe Biden and other political elitists.

During the interview with TIME Magazine, only released on Monday, Volodymyr further explained “I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing,”.

“I don’t want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand. We’re at war,” he said. “If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”

“There was no blackmail,” Zelensky told reporters in October. “We are not servants. We are an independent country.”

Zelensky’s comments come as House Democrats move swiftly with their impeachment inquiry against President Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formally launched efforts to remove the president after a partisan CIA analyst filed a “whistleblower” complaint alleging that the president pressured the leader of Ukraine to investigate allegations corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. The complaint, based on second-hand information, claimed President Trump appeared to have signaled that he would withhold aid unless the probes were conducted — something the president and Zelensky have repeatedly denied.
