"I have a huge respect for the personality of Trump," Budanov said.

Budanov highlighted Trump's attendance at a military academy, praising his tenacity.

"There have been nine instances in his life when he went to the top, fell to the very bottom of life, and went back again," said Budanov.

However, regarding Trump's proposed peace plan, Budanov expressed skepticism, saying that “even a person like him won't be able to resolve this issue in one day.”
