Military Review

Trump: Why are we spending money on Ukraine, but the EU does not?

45
As previously reported, the United States decided to resume financial assistance to Ukraine for military needs. Recall that by decision of President Trump, the allocation of funds to Kiev was frozen at the time of checking where Kiev spent the previously allocated funds. The results of the audit were not reported, but after the “defrosting” they decided to even increase military assistance, bringing transfers to 250 million dollars.


Trump: Why are we spending money on Ukraine, but the EU does not?


Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the decision to resume military-technical assistance to Ukraine was made personally by Donald Trump.

Pompeo:

We want to maintain excellent relations with Ukrainians. We want Ukraine to be free and independent.

Against this background, Donald Trump himself spoke, outlining his position. It consists in shifting the financial “obligations” with respect to Ukraine onto the shoulders of European partners.

American President:

Yes, Ukraine has a lot of problems. But there is Germany, France. In general, the entire European Union should give it more money. Why is it that we spend (on Ukraine) money, but they (the EU) do not? I am not happy that they spend little compared with us (to Ukraine).

Among other things, it became known that Trump is ready to unveil a transcript of a telephone conversation with Vladimir Zelensky. The US Democratic Party accused Trump of “exerting pressure on his interlocutor,” suggesting that he publish data on the activities of Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine. The presidential administration says there was no pressure.

        Yes, there is an ordinary American move. Money is allocated, but weapons from the United States are bought on it. So not Ukraine is sponsored, but the American defense industry. And Ukraine will also have to. Therefore, when it comes to Europe, it is only so that they also sponsor the US military industry.

    Trump: Why are we spending money on Ukraine, but the EU does not?
    Why? Yes, apparently all because of this ...

    In general, I "like" the policy of the United States, they will start a little, and when they see that they have already gone far and nothing happens, they immediately look for someone to "turn the arrows" to, so that someone would "pay for the banquet"

      Europe has begun to count its money, and it is trying not to invest in projects that it does not promise profit. This is the United States can afford to allocate dollars to Ukraine, as they see fit - they will print and give.

        Alas, it’s not the same for a long time, since the public debt is already HUGE, and it is necessary to service it, including paying interest on it. Trump, as a businessman, understands this better than all US presidents, in recent years.

          You can act more progressively: zero creditors. The French cockerel in Libya could.
          Or take a loan from a lender (pieces of paper that you print and give to him for any futures) to service your loan.

            Do not understand these "kopecks" on what they spend?
            And about the public debt service, here are some numbers
            According to the results of fiscal 2018 (in the United States it begins in October and ends in September), the United States paid $ 535,9 billion to pay interest on its public debt. This amount was a record for the entire history of the United States, rewriting the level of 2011, when it was spent 454,4 billion dollars.

          hi , Sergei.
          In addition, he perfectly calculates (IMHO) that after the introduction of the SP-2 and UP, the transit through the Ruin will stop, its money will become even more scarce, and even more will have to be spent on maintaining the anti-Russian region (and the distribution of infusions into the Ruin looks like this: 50% - USA, 50% - EU VKUP). Hence, Mr Trump's tweets about the futility of investing in the Independence Square and increasing EU participation. In the very same square, fancy projects are being built about "transit", ignoring the opinion of the "seller" of gas (RF). Fantasize, damn it.

      At least the EU, even the United States, let anyone spend it. The main thing is to avoid direct costs to Ukraine. Besides the fact that they have already tumbled down. But according to Brzezinski, they would hang on us with pleasure.

    Maybe because in Europe the whole idea with Ukraine is not like it anymore? Maybe in Europe comes an understanding of how and who has them? laughing

    Trump got Ukraine like a weight on his feet from Obama and his gang. Now he is trying to "knock" Biden out of the presidential race, using his "VNA" joints ... Everything is logical. The Democrats are fiercely defending themselves.
    But Ukraine is already too expensive ... Ah, Europeans ... Come on, to the rescue. We are bogged down here. wassat

    In the States, a big scandal.
    Trump is accused of pressure on Zelensky to investigate the activities of Biden’s son on the board of directors of a private company.
    The investigation has already been carried out, the illegal actions of Biden’s son have not been identified.
    But Trump allegedly raised this issue 8 times in a conversation with Zelensky in order to resume it.
    A delay in financing of Ukraine, some in the States are seen as an element of pressure.
    Biden is Trump's likely rival in the next election, and Trump is accused of pulling foreigners into American elections to discredit his opponent.
    Moreover, Trump's personal lawyer in the interview actually admitted the charges.
    In the United States, they started talking about impeachment, which is unlikely to go through the Senate ....

    In a word, according to Trump, Europe is obliged not only 2% (4%) of GDP in NATO, but also to allocate money to Ukraine. Taxed the EU with additional tax. Let the Europeans think, but do they need it?
