Walker was convicted of lobbying the interests of Javelin ATGM manufacturer in Ukraine

60
Kurt Volker, who has resigned from the post of US special representative for the United States for Ukraine, most likely lobbied in the territory of Ukraine the interests of the defense company Raytheon Company, which produces weapons, including Javelin anti-tank missile systems. It is reported by the newspaper Politico.


Walker was convicted of lobbying the interests of Javelin ATGM manufacturer in Ukraine


According to the publication, Walker, holding the post of US Special Representative for Ukraine, was also a member of the American lobbying company BGR Group and the McCain Institute research institute, which everywhere pushed Raytheon Company products while on salary. This explains the "militaristic" position of Walker, occupied by him after his appointment to Kiev. Recall that he advocated the provision of military assistance to Ukraine, while pushing for the supply of Javelin complexes in every way, which in the end, he managed to do.

According to information from the newspaper, Volker’s relations with the company with the Raytheon Company may lead to new questions for him, in addition to the already existing after the publication of the text of the complaint of an American intelligence officer regarding the conversation between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky. Recall that on Friday, Volker resigned, trying to distance himself from the flaming scandal.

It should be noted that in the 2018 year, Ukraine, as it now turns out, not without Volcker's help, purchased in the USA 37 launchers of ATGMs Javelin and 210 missiles for them. This year, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced plans to purchase a second batch of complexes, but this deal may not take place, because the main lobbyist for the armament of Ukraine is no longer there.

    at the same time he was listed in the American lobbying company BGR Group and the McCain Institute, being in it "on a salary."

    That one is a wolf.

        ... in Ukraine, Walker lobbied for the interests of the defense company Raytheon Company

        Yes, it is clear that the very personality of Volcker plays little role. He or another, it doesn't matter. The point is that Ukraine's interests suffer from such "lobbying". Isn't that clear? After all, kh.okhly were not stupid guys. What happened to their brains?

            Walker is an associate and like-minded person of McCain! Who is McCain and no need to remind.

            There is a proverb: "Tell me who your friend is, and I will tell you who you are!"

            I am sure that McCain, like Kurt Walker, was engaged in military-arms lobbying in Ukraine in order to unleash military operations there against the South-East of Ukraine. There can be no doubt at all!

            Moreover, it is quite possible that McCain was also "on the payroll" of the American oil and gas companies Shell and Chevron to promote the interests of these American companies in Ukraine and reduce the population over the Yuzovsky gas field, i.e. in the South-East of Ukraine.

            McCain would also need to be checked in this regard for lobbyism, despite the fact that he had already died.

            Verily, for whom is war, and for whom is the mother of the clan!

                      "Got caught" is the wrong term.
                      Corruption in the United States has been labeled "lobbying" and made a legitimate business. The laws are not violated, so there is no "evidence". Business, only business. Nothing personal.

                        Wherever there is an arms trade, there is so-called "lobbying". And in fact - personal interest, expressed in banknotes. But it's not just the United States that sells weapons. But all sorts of accusations are against the United States. And there is no similar information about our gallant arms dealers. No? Or is it just a system that is essentially one-party? And there is no one to call to account?
                        I consider the US an enemy. Not conditional opponents, namely the enemy. But their real bipartisan system is a clear achievement.

                        There are no doubts that all US public politicians are figures, not players. The country's policy changes only slightly when the figures change. So the players in the shadows change their shapes. Players remain the same.
                        At the expense of writing off Volcker - not a fact. Just now "justify" to cut financing Ukraine is being created. Europe is tired of it, the electorate needs to forget a little about it. So all sorts of "insults to Germany" and "Volcker's dismissals" surface.
                        The Walker will not be lost. Find him a use.

          Nothing is different from what it was. Farm philosophy assumes the primacy of personal interest. People from the Ukrainian leadership who made decisions on the purchase of Javelins receive bonuses from each party. If GE will pay more, they will buy GE's products. Boeing bombarded people who signed the purchase of their equipment with bonuses, and today we fly more on Boeings than on Tu. We have not gone far in this matter. Ukrainian and Russian mentality are close, and the results are the same. Lubricating contracts is the oldest tradition in European marketing. Wasn't that why we chopped down doors there? laughing

Therefore, there is no difference between civilian and military products, there is a difference in the proposed amount of "lubrication" of the contract.

    Presumably the Americans can do without Volcker - there are a dime a dozen intermediaries. And not only with "darts" and decommissioned boats, but (as the American generals themselves admit) with the subordination of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the US command.

      I read the last paragraph, and by association with the latest news about the transfer of 2500 abrashek to the border. And what they should put in them is not precious Amer carcasses but a good free cannon fat (it also pays), and move your loved ones under the control and command. It is theoretically feasible, though there is a minus-if from Europe they successfully ride to Moscow, then the EU and half the world are covered with a copper basin, if we stop at the border then the states themselves will have to isolate themselves from the whole world due to a grand scandal.

        I am sometimes amazed at the ability to understand information
        "The exercise involved about 2,5 units of M1 Abrams tanks, M2 Bradley combat vehicles, M109 Paladin artillery pieces and various other tracked and wheeled vehicles, which were loaded onto three ships bound for Europe. 150 were delivered to the port from Texas. trucks and 640 railroad cars. "

        How can such a mass of equipment be delivered by 150 trucks and 640 railway cars. 2500 tanks are under 170000 tons, what kind of transports are these. Maybe only 2500 pieces of equipment, and it’s unlikely, more likely 250. In all combat units of the USA around the world there are no more than 3000 tanks. I don’t know who writes the news, but you can understand it reasonably.

    This is a normal situation for the United States. Doesn't Trump do the same? It also knocks out contracts for American weapons from its allies and satellites.

    Here he is what mattresses solved the questions of the neighbors! laughing Europe does not help. And why did they decide that the states would help? If they help, then only stay without port. And I must say, while they do it well.

    in 2018, Ukraine, as it now turns out, not without Volcker's help, purchased 37 Javelin ATGM launchers and 210 missiles from him in the United States.

    here the nameless author was clearly mistaken
    with or without help, but Ukraine received that batch of Javelins for 47 million for free, in the form of assistance

    laughing And there is no corruption that you! It’s not enough for them to cut the budget with Biden, and also a colony for the country, but they are robbing themselves.
    Walker! Give the shovel back!

    Walker will be punished, and indicative. Let him look at Zelensky’s face after talking with Trump and Donald's mention of GDP.
