None of that aid will be stolen right?
Editor’s Note – The initial title of ‘3rd most corrupt nation’ relied on an older study. We found a more recent study which is linked to below. In any event, what the West needs to realize is that the Ukrainian system is rife with plundering of American aid money. You can read our coverage in 2019 on Ukraine here to get an idea of the scale of money laundering, information operations against American presidents by Ukrainian authorities, and state capture of Ukrainian institutions. To give Ukraine $12 billion a month is simply insane, that is unless you give 10% to the ‘big guy’.
Sources have informed Tsarizm that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is demanding $12 billion a month in aid from Western capitols.
Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the world, only in front of Russia in Europe on the corruption index.
The demand is to ‘make up for economic losses’ Ukraine has suffered during the Russian invasion.
It should be noted that Zelenskiy refused to follow the ‘Minsk Protocols’ that were agreed to with Russia years before in a ceasefire agreement, and is now demanding the West rebuild his country. We are not absolving Russia of responsibility but this war was avoidable.
The original request was $5 billion a month, but Zelenksiy is upping the ante. Today’s announcement came in a call with the IMF and World Bank. Zelenskiy declared the figure was so high because Russia had been targeting railway stations, food warehouses, and oil refineries.
Zelenskiy is sponsored by oligarch Igor Kolomoisky and is reported to have upwards of a billion dollars offshore from various sources, including oligarch money which is essentially stolen from the Ukrainian people.
It is safe to say much of this $12 billion a month will be stolen as well and will end up in dark corners of the offshore finance world.
Meanwhile, the U.S. southern border remains wide open.
