The current President of Ukraine and the presidential candidate Petro Poroshenko invited the showman and presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelensky to the debate on the “1 + 1” TV channel.

“I invite Volodymyr Alexandrovich Zelensky right now to the debate in the studio of the channel“ 1 + 1 ”, said the Head of State.
In turn, Volodymyr Zelensky over the phone said that he is now in France and will not be able to respond to this invitation.
“Petro Alekseevich knows perfectly well that I am now in Paris, in France, because his excellent security vehicles have accompanied me there. This information is known to you, I have a meeting tomorrow, at three o’clock in the afternoon, with the President of France. Therefore, it is strange that a respected presidential candidate, knowing that I am not in Kyiv, invites me into the “1 + 1” studio.
As for the debates, we agreed, I proposed the 19th day at the NSC Olimpiysky, I invited Mr. Poroshenko to the debate. He said: the stadium, so the stadium. And he accepted these conditions. I asked to call me Volodymyr Alexandrovich or Volodymyr, never to call me cattle, drug addict, and so on. He actually continues as before, but it’s okay, we are simple people, we can accept it. Therefore, I invite you with great joy to the debate, which was confirmed by the President, on the 19th day at the NSC Olimpiyskiy,” said Zelensky.
Poroshenko noted that he was not interested in the movements of Zelensky and could not know about his location when he invited him to the debate in the studio of the TV channel.
“I’ll finish in five years, and you’ll finish on 22 (ed. – of April),” the showman answered Poroshenko’s question about whether he had finished his speech.
The President, in response, repeated the invitation to Zelensky to take part in the national debates at the “Syspilny” TV channel on April 19. To this Zelensky replied: “On the 19th at the NSC Olimpiyskiy. This is all.” and hung up.
