Most people reading this do not necessarily have a problem with aid going to Ukraine.
The problem is there is no accountability and with Ukraine’s history of corruption, that is a rather significant problem.
With the amount of aid we have sent to Ukraine, you cannot help but wonder if all of it is going into the right pockets, and according to a top Zelensky official, that fear is warranted.
Stuffing Their Pockets
A top advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke to Time Magazine recently, confirming what most of us believed has been happening all along.
The official claimed, “People are stealing like there’s no tomorrow.”
Another official told Time that by the time Zelensky had fired Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov due to allegations of corruption, it was “too late.”
Zelensky’s office has reportedly given strict directives to “avoid the slightest perception of self-enrichment…Don’t buy anything. Don’t take any vacations. Just sit at your desk, be quiet, and work.”
Keep in mind that these reports have been going around since the early days of this war, but Biden has taken no measures to stop the corruption or even investigate it.
Here is a solution… before one more penny of money goes to Ukraine, Zelensky allows a nonpartisan team of auditors to come in to trace every penny of money that the American people have sent to Ukraine.
Every person found guilty is then deported to the United States on charges of corruption, and an American team is put in place to monitor the receipt, dispensement, and use of all aid paid for by the American people.
Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) sounds like he agrees, stating, “I’ve sat in a lot of briefings where I was promised Ukraine doesn’t have a corruption problem.
“The Biden admin has lied to us. Not one more penny to Ukraine.”
Do I want to see Ukraine fall to Russia? Absolutely not, but I am not in favor of an open spigot to the country when we know significant portions of what we are sending over there are winding up in individuals’ pockets.
Accountability… that is all we are asking for.
