The U.S. has committed nearly $20 billion in weapons to Ukraine since Russia invaded the country in February.
Biden’s Gift Keeps On Giving
According to a Fox News report, the Biden administration announced they will send an additional $275 million in military aid to Ukraine to address “critical security and defense needs” in its war with Russia.
“The Defense Department announced the latest package Friday. It includes 80,000 rounds of ammunition, howitzers and an undisclosed amount of ammunition for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, known as HIMARS.” The U.S. will allow the Pentagon to take weapons from its own stock.
“To meet Ukraine’s evolving battlefield requirements, the United States will continue to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with key capabilities,” the Defense Department said.
The U.S. has supported Ukraine’s fight against Russia with billions of dollars in aid and weapons, but lawmakers from both parties have voiced concerns about oversight.
The Pentagon has given a tacit endorsement of Ukraine’s long-range attacks on targets inside Russia after President Putin’s multiple missile strikes against Kyiv’s critical infrastructure.
History of Losing Money Tied to Ukraine
President Biden’s administration is scrambling to track the nearly $20 billion in military aid it has sent to Ukraine as Republicans warn of impending audits when they take control of the House in January 2022.
“The taxpayers deserve to know that investment is going where it’s intended to go,” Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., told the Washington Post. “In any war, there can be missteps and misallocation of supplies.”
This is not the first time U.S. funds given to Ukraine were ‘lost.’
An alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme led to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.
In 2019 Ukrainian businessman Igor Kolomoisky controlled Ukraine’s largest commercial bank, Privat Bank. This bank was said to control Burisma, the oil and gas company that gave Hunter Biden millions.
There were reports that Kolmiosky somehow lost $1.8 billion of the bank’s money – it’s suspected the money went offshore somewhere.
Shocking Names Connected to Ukraine
The Bidens, John Kerry, Mitt Romney, the Clintons, Speaker Pelosi, and George Soros all have connections to Ukraine.
Joe Biden’s son Hunter was a Board member of Burisma, the Ukrainian Oil and Gas firm. It’s the same company President Joe Biden bragged about removing a prosecutor who was looking into the Bidens and George Soros in Ukraine. Burisma is also Ukraine’s largest provider of natural gas.
John Kerry was involved in Burisma as well.
An article stated a former top CIA official joined the board of Burisma, the oil and gas company, not long after Trump became president. Joseph Cofer Black, a “top Romney aide” who served in various CIA positions under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, would be “leading the company’s security and strategic development efforts.”
From 2009 up to 2013, the year the Ukrainian crisis erupted, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, headquartered in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. In 2008, Pinchuk pledged a five-year, $29-million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, which trains future Ukrainian leaders “to modernize Ukraine.”
Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., got paid thousands for a no-show job, the same company that paid him has connections to the Clintons. Paul Jr. was also on the board of an energy company and traveled to Ukraine for his work.
George Soros has been connected to Ukraine for a very long time. He was interviewed by 60 Minutes years ago, and at that time, he was already involved in Ukraine. Obama’s State and Justice Departments assisted George Soros in his attempt to control Ukraine.
Bulgarian lawmakers on Friday approved the country’s first military assistance package to Ukraine, involving a classified list of weapons prepared by the government. Ukrainian TV star Serhiy Prytula’s foundation donated over 3,000 drones to Ukraine and has raised over $85,000.
