U.S. President Donald Trump asked President Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call to investigate Biden and his son Hunter, who earned money from a Ukrainian gas company.

That call has triggered an impeachment inquiry into whether Trump sought personal political gain by pushing for a foreign investigation into one of his main political rivals.

"I have no such information," General Prosecutor Ruslan Ryaboshapka said, when asked whether he had evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden.

Asked if Trump's personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani had contacted him, Ryaboshapka told reporters at a press conference that no foreigners had been in touch with his office. (Reporting by Maria Tsvetkova and Pavel Polityuk; writing by Matthias Williams)
