Former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko denied Sunday that former Vice President Joe Biden ever approached him about Burisma Holdings, a gas company of which Biden's son Hunter was a board member.

"My absolutely clear answer: no, never," Poroshenko told CNN's Fareed Zakaria on "Fareed Zakaria GPS." "But I also cannot accept that, neither President Obama nor President Biden - Vice President Biden, nor President Trump, nor Vice President Pence never press[ed] me."

Poronshenko became president of Ukraine in 2014, the same year that Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, a gas company based in Kyiv. At the time, Vice President Biden was working with the others in the Obama administration to help reform policy and root out corruption in Ukraine. Hunter Biden served on the board until early 2019.
