Ex-adviser to the president of the United States on national security, John Bolton, in his memoir, wrote that the American leader Donald Trump at a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2018 announced his desire to see a pro-Russian politician as head of Ukraine. About this writes Strana.ua.
Trump expressed this opinion in 2018 during the G20 summit, which was held in Argentina, Bolton writes.
According to him, the American president told Merkel that a pro-Russian candidate as head of Ukraine could prevent a possible new world war.
“The Russians would really like it,” the ex-adviser quotes Trump in his book.
In October 2019, it became known that Bolton intends to write a book about his work as a national security adviser. Trump fired him a month before, explaining his decision by a strong divergence of views on national security issues.
The court allowed the publication of the book, despite attempts by the presidential administration to ban the publication of memoirs.
