"Therefore, there's a goal for me. I don't see any obstacles. I'll bring in smart people. If I fail, I'll quit. Therefore, I'm running for president for five years and propose the bill on impeachment as one of the first laws," he said.

Zelensky has noted his team had discussions on whether such legislation was feasible.

"Here and now, go make history, do everything you can," he stressed.
