there's two significant things I've learned here:

The President urged Zelenskyy not to fire Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, who the President claimed was doing a good job. (Note: Lutsenko has spearheaded various politicized investigations, including on Burisma Holdings and alleged "Ukrainian interference" in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Lutsenko is widely reviled in Ukraine, and Zelenskyy has pledged to fire him but has been unable to secure approval from the legislature.)

not only did Trump want a Biden investigation, but he also requested to keep a high-ranking Ukraine prosecutor on board that Zelenskyy originally campaign promised to fire

According to the official, Zelenskyy demurred in response to most of the President's requests.

"demurred" as in hesitated or objected

it doesn't seem like Zelenskyy was entirely happy with this perfect call from Trump.
