Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Expected you would find the link by reading this stuff. Reading between the lines ... Zelenskiy, the actor, was even more surprised than his master about the dust the call kicked up! The Ukrainians always ready to please as  Poroshenko was obliged to the Democrats, Obama, Biden and Nuland.

Zelenskiy says what Trump wants to hear

And how did Zelenskiy respond? He said exactly what Trump wanted to hear, complimenting him and even referring to him as a "great teacher." Zelenskiy readily agreed to Trump's wishes. At that moment, Zelenskiy -- the Servant of the People -- became the Servant of Donald Trump.

Granted, politics is always about competing interests. But in his conversation with Trump, Zelenskiy hardly stood up for his country's priorities. Instead, he seemed fixed on appeasing the American leader. He neither asked Trump for US investments in his war-torn country, nor for the backing of his comprehensive reform agenda that he has promised Ukrainians.
