Donald Trump will have to show something about Ukraine to both his voters and not his own, believes former Foreign Minister of this country Pavel Klimkin. This opinion was shared by the former head of diplomacy of the Kiev regime in the program "Time: Online" with Maria Skibinskaya on the Ukrainian Channel 5, suggesting possible unexpected actions of the Republican candidate for president of the United States in relation to Ukraine.

According to Klimkin, Joe Biden's competitor "will have to show something to both his voters and not his own, otherwise they will point the finger at him and say: "Trump, you promised, well, how many times did you tell us that, come on, now show it."

"Trump, of course, cannot look weak and this is a plus for us (Kiev. - Ed.), he cannot move to some kind of compromise logic," the ex-minister claims.

He believes that Trump "will try to remove the level of combat activity (on the Ukrainian front), reduce it and start a conversation."

"This is the logic that is always expressed by his entourage, his advisers. But that doesn't mean having a strategy, it means having the first step, it means having the leverage for the first step. In particular, they say that if more substantive conversations begin, in the sense that they are possible at all, then American military assistance will continue," Klimkin said.

At the same time, he did not rule out that Trump "may freak out at some point and increase aid (to Kiev) at times."

"Or, on the contrary, it may decide to reduce it. Trump can keep Europe as an ally. Or he can say: "Europe, I don't really believe you, you're saying something somewhere, but I'm doing everything." That is, there can be very, very many different nuances. Trump is also known as an enemy of China. He can say, "China is helping Russia, and I don't like that,"" Klimkin said.

At the same time, according to him, Trump "does not say that he will put pressure on us to accept any conditions."

One way or another, but "the whole world will be watching this and it will be very, very important for Trump to show the result," summed up the interlocutor of the TV channel.

Yesterday, Vladimir Zelensky called on Donald Trump to announce his plan for a quick end to the conflict.

"If Trump knows how to end this war, he should tell us about it today. If there are risks to Ukrainian independence, if we lose statehood, we want to be ready for this, we want to know," Zelensky said in an interview with Bloomberg.

He added that he was ready to meet with Trump and his team to listen to the proposals of the former US president. According to Zelensky, the authorities in Kiev want to understand whether they will have "strong US support in November or we will be left all alone."

In June, Trump's advisers presented him with a plan to resolve the conflict on Ukraine in case of victory in the presidential elections, which will be held in November. The initiative assumes that the Kiev regime will receive more weapons only if peace talks begin.
