Just Days After Ukraine Demands More Taxpayer Cash – Over a Dozen Ukrainian Officials Just Got Canned for Corruption

What’s Happening:

At the start of the Russia-Ukraine War, there may have been some Americans eager to help. But almost a year has passed. Joe Biden has pledged to spend over $100 billion to help Ukraine. The country has taken over $40 billion from us so far, with nothing to show for it.

And their president continues to demand money and aid from the United States and nations abroad. Americans have the right to ask what the heck is going on in that country. And now, we are finding out just what some of Ukraine’s leaders were doing with our generous aid.

This will really burn your biscuits.

From Just the News:

Ukraine on Tuesday dismissed the governors in five provinces and several other senior officials amid corruption allegations…

The governors of the Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson, Kyiv, Sumy and Zaporizhzhia provinces were among the roughly one dozen Ukrainian officials who either resigned or were dismissed…

Some of the dismissed officials were linked with corruption allegations. Ukraine is under heavy international pressure to show Western nations that it can be responsible with billions of dollars of aid.

This is really unbelievable. Governors from five provinces were fired, along with top officials who worked with President Zelensky. Over what? Allegations of corruption, including the misuse of aid provided by America and other countries.

As Zelensky’s traveled the world, appearing on award shows and magazines demanding money, his officials back home were squandering it. Reports accuse some leaders of forcing agencies to overpay for food for troops.

One official came under fire for taking a leisure trip to Spain. Really? Your home country is being bombarded by Russian invaders. Countless Ukrainians have been forced into exile. And this guy is going on luxury trips to Spain!?

What else have they done with our money?

Zelensky is clearly panicking. He has banned officials from vacationing abroad. But that’s not going to fix this problem. Ukraine has demanded more and more money from us, creating a situation where defense contractors are profiting more than Ukrainians.

The war is nowhere near an end. And Biden’s bankrolling of this conflict is only preventing talks of a cease-fire. And now we are learning that Ukrainian officials were squandering the money given to them.

Ukraine has long been associated with corruption. Biden and his family have been implicated with previous leaders in shady deals and partnerships. Zelensky was supposed to be different. But is his administration using this war to get rich?

We better find out the truth, and fast.

Key Takeaways:

  • Top Ukrainian officials have been fired amid corruption charges.
  • Accusations abound over misspent aid sent by America and other countries.
  • This comes as President Zelensky keeps demanding more money.
