Despite countless billions flooding into Ukraine, Kiev can't pay its debts.
Yeah, no one saw this coming, right? How much off shore money does this little Nazi have stashed away?
If the Ukraine wasn't one of the most corrupt nations on the planet, you never would have heard of the Biden crime family having anything to do with them.
Wait, they were supposed to bankrupt Russia! The destruction of western economies cannot be accidental, but planned! Ukraine and Russia played their role in triggering the destruction. Ukraine is the epitome of a black hole of corruption.
How much for "The Big Guy," and the other Big Guy Putin, exactly what is everybody's cut, plus all the arms that end up in the Weapons Bazaars, how is that split up as well?
How about Barack, what is his cut?
Hunter still on the take?
This whole thing has been a manufactured "Ukraine Laundry" ever since the Budapest Memorandum and the 1800 nuclear warheads returned to Russia in exchange for sovereignty and border guarantees. Didn't take them long to want a new deal hence the various "coups" and the US acknowledging through that Patriot Nuland that it was all our fault (maybe the snipers) so Putin could snatch Crimea for free and start the genocide for cash all over again while ignoring his obligation to defend Ukraine from invaders. The US signed that, Russia, Britain, France, China even!
Jordan, It's not like this wasn't figured in or anticipated, in the the grand scheme of things. The U.S. knew from day one that the Ukraine was corrupt, but no more so than our imposter-in-chief, his son and 90% percent of Congress.
This is all about a proxy war with Russia. If Ukraine can't repay, Eh? Who cares? They will just become another "vassal state" to the U.S. The only one out any money is the tax payer who pays for all this shit!!!!

Ukraine has been in deep trouble since 2014 when the West/NATO started meddling . Ukraine has one great option.. Join up with Russia. Russia has the nukes and no one will ever think of invading you again. You will have a country thay is 90% Slavic with the biggest reserves of oil,gas,minerals/"black earth" soil . Together you produce over 30% of the worlds wheat . JOIN NOW
This is normal in our proxy wars. We've been running puppet states since 1880, and we know what to expect.
Can you even imagine all of the dirty money filtering through this place? All kinds of grifter politicans have their fingers in the pie. Courtesy of the American taxpayer.
Ukraine is a pit of corruption, with the Bidens behind the scene collecting the bribes and kickbacks.
They're in the middle of a war, any money they get is used to buy arms and ammunition, and to support their armed forces. To insist that they pay on foreign debt now is insanity. If Ukraine loses to Russia, it won't stop with Ukraine, Putin's intent is to capture the entire Black Sea coast down to Greece - and then he's got his eyes on the Baltic States, and Poland. The only thing keeping him back from that is Ukraine. If he isn't defeated in Ukraine, Western Europe - to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean - is at risk. His intent closely follows that set out by Aleksandr Dugin's 1997 book, Foundations of Geopolitics - https://tec.fsi.stanford.edu/docs/aleksandr-dugins-foundations-geopolitics - "As for the former union republics of the USSR situated within Europe, they all, in Dugin's view, (with the exception of Estonia) should be absorbed by Eurasia-Russia. "Belorussia," Dugin asserts flatly, "should be seen as a part of Russia" (377). In similar fashion, Moldova is seen as a part of what Dugin calls "the Russian South" (343).
On the key question of Ukraine, Dugin underlines: "Ukraine as a state has no geopolitical meaning. It has no particular cultural import or universal significance, no geographic uniqueness, no ethnic exclusiveness" (377). "Ukraine as an independent state with certain territorial ambitions," he warns, "represents an enormous danger for all of Eurasia and, without resolving the Ukrainian problem, it is in general senseless to speak about continental politics" (348). And he adds that, "[T]he independent existence of Ukraine (especially within its present borders) can make sense only as a 'sanitary cordon'" (379). However, as we have seen, for Dugin all such "sanitary cordons" are inadmissible.
Dugin speculates that three extreme western regions of Ukraine--Volynia, Galicia, and Trans- Carpathia--heavily populated with Uniates and other Catholics, could be permitted to form an independent "Western Ukrainian Federation." But this area must not under any circumstances be permitted to fall under Atlanticist control (382). With the exception of these three western regions, Ukraine, like Belorussia, is seen as an integral part of Eurasia-Russia.
At one point in his book, Dugin confides that all arrangements made with "the Eurasian bloc of the continental West," headed by Germany, will be merely temporary and provisional in nature. "The maximum task [of the future]," he underscores, "is the 'Finlandization' of all of Europe" (369)."
You are nowhere cynical enough for international politics.
Ukraine will offer up its gas and oil infrastucture as security to the EU and US (especially the US). It will be politically impossible for them to deny this, and putting these companies and sites under US/EU owenrship means Russia must either pull back or be in direct open conflict with EU/US, something we know our leaders balk at.
Meaning they will pay Russia to withdraw as to avoid going to war without proxy.
Money laundering 101. Use war to syphon tax money from citizens to governments that use it to pay off their cronies. It was ever thus. Doesn't pay to be a tax chump, does it?
Not a fan of Putin either, but there are no good guys in this proxy war, only victims who do the suffering of losing everything in this terrible process.
It's in his DNA..
....and so the money laundering continues.... Has he produced receipts for what he's had already
