Official Representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on a Channel One Russia that the transcript publication of te telephone conversation between the US President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky showed that it is dangerous to negotiate with Washington, reports TASS news agency.
"I agree with many assessments that this [publication of the transcript] certainly changes the form of relations between countries, between presidents, and between politicians. Because now, three days after this scandal, everyone understands that it is dangerous to call to Washington, to negotiate and meet [with US politicians]," Zakharova said.
Zakharova noted that the negative consequences of Washington's publication of the content of the talks between the presidents of the two countries are "very significant." She believes that the publication of a telephone conversation can be a lesson to the Ukrainian President and thus affect the situation in the country.
"Just in an instant, you can ruin all Ukrainian politics, as it was done because of "the democracy." Because Democrats are behind of this, so Ukraine, as the American establishment, can be ruined in an instant when it will be convenient and necessary," said Zakharova.
