Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said U.S. President Donald Trump during the meeting promised to help him to return Russian-annexed Crimea.
"A very interesting story about Crimea. You know there were statements that if people there speak Russian, it is no longer Ukraine... I explained to him that this is our land; we have no issues about communication or language – we have a state language, and it's Ukrainian," he told journalists following a meeting with Trump in New York, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
According to Zelensky, he told Trump that "Crimea is a beautiful place" and "it is a large beautiful part of our country."
"It seems to me, and I heard that he agrees that this is our native land and we will get it back, and he says: 'Yes, you need to work, and we will help you'," he said.
