Ukrainian officials will not testify in the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump, the nation's foreign minister said Tuesday. 

“We don’t have anything to do with this at all,” Vadym Prystaiko told reporters, according to Reuters. “We won’t go there, we won’t comment.”

Prystaiko also said the relationship between Kiev and Washington has not changed since the start of the impeachment probe, according to Reuters. 

A call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is at the center of the inquiry.

A whistleblower filed a complaint alleging Trump solicited foreign interference from Ukraine in the 2020 election.

The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform committees are leading the impeachment investigation and are deposing witnesses behind closed doors. 

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, is testifying before the three House committees on Tuesday. 

He is expected to tell House investigators that he twice reported concerns about Trump’s tactics in dealing with Ukraine, based on a copy of his opening statement obtained by The Hill.
