American TV channel: US senators will hold a secret briefing on financial assistance to Ukraine

The Biden administration is having difficulty getting the Senate to approve the government's consolidated funding bill, which must be approved by the upper house of Congress before December 16. Among other things, it includes spending on the next package of assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $37 billion. True, the problems with the package adoption of the project have nothing to do with the allocation of money to Kyiv, or rather, indirect financial assistance to the independent - more on that below.


It remains to be seen whether the administration will be able to negotiate a giant package package with senators, or whether it will have to agree to a temporary decision to fund federal agencies at last year's level, which the Pentagon has strongly opposed.

According to CNN, citing its sources in the Senate, regarding the allocation of money to Ukraine, senators will hold a secret briefing next Wednesday. Given that the Democrats retained their majority in the upper house of Congress, the senators will certainly approve this tranche.

And the Republicans, who received the majority in the House of Representatives, in general, do not object to further financing of the Kyiv regime, they only insist on tighter control over the spending of funds. And this control, judging by the newsletter on the distribution of Ukrainian aid funds, will be quite useful. So, the breakdown of billions for Kyiv is as follows:

- $21,7 billion for the Pentagon for "equipment for Ukraine, resupply of the Department of Defense, and continued military, intelligence and other defense support";

- $14,5 billion for the State Department for "direct budgetary support to Ukraine, important investments during the war, security assistance, strengthening global food security and humanitarian assistance";

- $626 million for the Department of Energy "in support of Ukraine's nuclear security and the modernization of the strategic oil reserve";

- $900 million for the Department of Health and Human Services "to provide standard healthcare assistance and support to Ukrainian refugees."

Very vague language, especially given that the Pentagon will receive three-quarters of the funding, including for the resupply of the Department of Defense and other defense support. And the State Department is not limited in any way in using money, for example, for global humanitarian and food aid or important investments during the war. Against this background, it makes no sense even to talk about miserable millions for the Ministry of Energy for the modernization of the strategic oil reserves. With such definitions of spending purposes, money can be used in any way and anywhere, before it reaches the final recipient.

    They want to know where the money went in Ukraine, despite the fact that it does not reach Ukraine, and moreover, the one to whom the money reaches Ukraine cannot report where he put his money:

    They only spent 2 trillion dollars on Iraq, and here they have only 100 billion more. The loot is still washed and washed.

    So everything is very clear, the Republicans have come and want to get hooked on the "pipeline" of dough through "Ukraine". Here, either to share, or so much dirt will come up that it will not seem enough. In the meantime, an internal audit is arranged to understand what and how to share.

    The final recipient of the money will remain the US military-industrial complex. Well, something will fall on civilian manufacturers. And Ukraine is the result. As long as everything is in debt. And then either they will try to take it away from Russia with interest, or they will leave Ukraine in bondage. In North America, no matter how many immigrants from Ukraine now live, they have long learned to carry chestnuts with other people's pickups.

    The scandal with the reverse transfer of money through bitcoins from Dill to the United States miraculously turned out to be hushed up. Campaign shared with everyone, enough money.

    I don't think it's about the money. Well, at least for that moment.

    The end of the dollar's hegemony is not yet close, but the owners of money have already taken up the tricky task of how to keep the distribution center and security company under the "USA" brand. Of course, nothing will come of this, a large star attracts small ones and then an explosion follows, but why not take a moment and at least fill your pockets in the end.

    They spent 2 trillion on Iraq, 1.5 trillion on Afghanistan.
    As if. jingoists did not say that America would get tired of sponsoring Ukraine and neo-Nazis, but everything is just beginning. And, if the flow of weapons from the West is not stopped, then they can supply it for a very long time.

    Senators, obviously, perform their control functions. But in the issue of allocating money, the main role is still played by another chamber, the House of Representatives.
