About a year ago, there may have been some Americans eager to help Ukraine. But times are changing. Joe Biden intends to give $100 billion to help Ukraine continue this seemingly endless war. 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, Europe, and anyone else whose listening. Americans have the right to ask what the heck is going on in that country. Now, we are finding out just what some of Ukraine’s leaders were doing with our generous aid.
Ukraine on Tuesday dismissed the governors in five provinces and several other senior officials amid corruption allegations, in the central government’s largest leadership upheaval since the Russian invasion roughly 11 months ago…
A deputy head of President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office, a deputy defense minister, a deputy prosecutor and two deputy ministers in charge of regional development also left.
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 Ukrainian provinces were fired, along with top officials who worked with President Zelensky. Over what? It seems they were embroiled in corruption allegations. That includes the misuse of aid provided by America and other countries.
As Zelensky’s traveled the world, appearing on award shows and in interviews 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.
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?
