In a recent sit-down with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky admitted having a good relationship with the CIA, confirming his frequent intel discussions with them.

When asked about the possibility of a peaceful resolution that doesn’t involve regaining control over Crimea, Zelensky firmly responded, “It’s in there. It will not be victory then.”

Zelensky was surprised when news of his regular, confidential conversations with the CIA was leaked to the press.
