Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba told CNBC on Thursday that he doesn’t think there will be much of a shift in support away from his country if Donald Trump is re-elected as US president later this year.

Kuleba said: “So I think there is potential [Russian President Vladimir] Will Putin and Trump agree to something behind Ukraine’s back if Trump becomes president? I don’t.”

“And it’s not just me thinking out loud, it’s the reality that dictates the understanding of the dynamics,” he said, speaking to CNBC’s Steve Sedgwick at the World Economic Forum in Davos about Ukraine’s ongoing war with Russia.

Kuleba was referring to Trump’s approval of sanctions on Nord Stream 2, Russia’s major natural gas pipeline to Europe. He added that Trump was also “the first to sell lethal weapons to Ukraine».

When asked in Davos on Tuesday about the possibility of Trump serving a second term, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said: “One man alone cannot change the whole nation — that is my belief.”
