Military Review

Ukrainian corruption is incurable. The question is removed from the agenda of the West

46
Corruption in the defense sector of Ukraine no longer cares about the West. It seems to be incurable. This was acknowledged even by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.




The Ukrainian energy sector seems to have managed to clear out corrupt officials. But corruption has successfully moved to the military sector, the New York Times is surprised.

Here is the newest example. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine acquired a hundred ambulance carriages. Who? Poroshenko’s old friend, Oleg Gladkovsky. Moreover, the military made this purchase without an open tender, reports "InoTV". And here's another great thing: these "carriages" ... already out of order! It does not matter: on the horizon looms a new contract with the same contractor!

But since the beginning of the conflict in the east of Kiev, defense spending jumped strongly. And money, of course, passes through Ukrainian officials and businessmen. Therefore, according to The New York Times, the growth of defense expenditures in fact makes it difficult to fight corruption!

But after all, corruption had previously been recognized as "the most dangerous enemy of Ukraine." How to be? No way.

The problem of corruption killed the hope that emerged from people after the overthrow of Yanukovych, the newspaper says. Also, the scope of business of questionable businessmen made Ukraine’s supporters in the West and many Ukrainians doubt that the country would cope with chronic corruption in general.

That's what Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State, thinks about the ineradicable Ukrainian corruption:

“It makes no sense for Ukraine to fight for its“ body ”in the Donbas if it gives up its“ soul ”of corruption”.


In short, we note that the rapid growth of defense spending has opened up new opportunities for other enterprising Kievites. Doubtful transactions that no one checks because of fake military "secrecy" (as in the example of ordinary ambulance carriages) and for which they do not even organize tenders, not only succeed, but also get continued. "Ambulance help" break? Do not worry, we will sell more of the same! The more it breaks, the richer our business!

As for Mr. Gladkovsky, he, it turns out, has already publicly acknowledged that the tender was not held. And I found a “tricky” argument: they say it’s all about the Russians. He explained the closeness of purchases by saying that the veil of secrecy would not allow Russia to “intervene” in the procurement process by sending “front companies” there.

Interestingly, is it also Russia’s fault that ambulances are falling apart?

          The oligarchic system, however, is synonymous with corruption. The Russian Federation has passed, now state capitalism and the kingdom of state corporations, corruption has sagged significantly. The next stage, you know ... the current NEP is coming to an end, the structure of the Russian Guard is formed for the further internal development of society. One way or another, the Stalinist model is being copied, but taking into account mistakes and without rushing with shocks.

          Bourgeois was not offended, since basically, they do not use their money, but state money. As an example, Sberbank. It is not clear on what schemes Grev did business in a hostile country, but after Sberbank's offices were laid in blocks, Grev said that: “2 yards were lost.” Not with him. The profits from the scrolling of the state money are put by the bourgeoisie into the kaman, and if there are losses, then these are the losses of the Russian Federation. With such as Gref and enemies are not necessary.

          It seems that doctors in such cases say a sluggish disease in remission.
          Once on the highway between the cities of Buzuluk and Orenburg, in the vicinity of the Totskoye training ground, at night I almost “flew” into the military KAMAZ, which was clearly the middle of the road without a hint of any lighting equipment, even there were no bulbs of dimensions. Perhaps that is why he rode in the middle of the road that the driver did not see anything except the moon. The car is a protective color and I saw her well, very close. And then fate brought the serviceman from this training ground, which, in response to my extreme displeasure, noticed that driving without bulbs was not even considered something bad. Here you are saying, try to ride a tanker with completely absent brakes for the complete axles, from the new tanker they sold and delivered a long time ago, which local farmers brought in return. Well, of course, the difference in price in the pockets of certain ranks.

      Under capitalism, corruption is one of the systemic elements, it cannot be defeated, but it can be minimized. It is interesting that in the rich West corruption is not harmful, they, even if they steal it, do not carry money somewhere in the Russian Federation, and again they spend and invest from them. In fact, corruption in the west is another type of redistribution of money in the economy, along with taxation. In the Papuans, corruption is detrimental because stolen goods are exported to the west. It can be expressed that corruption is a way of transferring wealth from the Papuans to the west.

        In Ukraine, the West, if it fights this evil, BUT is not in the interests of this country, but in its own interests, since the sanitary cordon cannot effectively fulfill its function. Western aid is stolen, so it won’t work. They will get the economy going, to the extent that they can arm themselves and gain amia.

    Yes, and our situation is not better, according to the Vostochny cosmodrome alone, three dozen cases were brought and these are just revealed facts, it’s time to strengthen responsibility for embezzlement to the defense industry, give more than 1 million years 15-20, and more than 10 million life-long and then in Dagestan, a case was launched on negligence against treasury employees, who, according to fictitious acts of the work performed, have sentenced one and a half billion rubles, and the sanction under this article, correctional labor or a fine is not even ridiculous, a mockery of the people and the state.

    “Ukrainian corruption is incurable.” ... corruption is a direct consequence of the democratization of any society ... in fact, it starts with corruption as such ... the purchase of the ruling Kodla with the imposition of its concepts. What happened during the Soviet era ... right ... nepotism, acquaintance, blat ... corruption came together with liberal-democratic relations in society ... a free application to Western democracy.

    Well, since Russia is to blame for the fact that in Ukraine everyone has become corrupt, it means that you need to take power into the hands of parties loyal to Russia. In short, make a revolution against corruption and seat the entire Ukrainian government in places where they should sit and watch the sun through metal cells.

    In my opinion, the topic of corruption is only one of the main tools of the West to destroy the post-Soviet space .... And what in the same Greece with Italy and Turkey there is no corruption? In practice, in such countries, corruption has long been elevated to the rank of tradition and law, and no one in the West yells about it and no one even touches this topic ...
    The post-Soviet space is being actively destroyed. and destroy it using the theme of corruption .. A disease called corruption can be treated very quickly - for example, electrocution for bribes on an especially large scale ... Scary ??? - but very effective !!! (direct example of the USA) But a bribe (or financial theft) on a particularly large scale is similar to murder - someone might not have enough of this money for medicine, and someone because of this was not born at all !!!
    And while in the post-Soviet space there will be no radical measures to fight corruption - the theme of the fight against corruption will remain only at the level of the talking room and no more ... As the saying goes: the dog barks - the caravan goes !!!
