Lithuanian President: Corruption in Ukraine slows down the supply of weapons by the West

Was Ukraine considered one of the most corrupt countries in Europe long before the conflict? and large-scale hostilities have changed little for the better. Even Kyiv's Western partners increasingly began to reproach him for his inability to cope with this scourge.

Once again, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda reminded about the problems of corruption in Ukraine, who also noted that this is one of the main reasons that hinder the supply of Western weapons to the country.

In particular, according to the Lithuanian President, the increasing corruption scandals in Ukraine have a significant impact on public opinion in Western countries, which cannot be ignored by the governments of these countries.

This is a very important reason... This is a huge blow to the reputation of this state

Nauseda said.

According to a number of experts, the words of the Lithuanian president were made after the Ukrainian president announced that the country's defense minister would be removed from his post. And although in this case there was no mention of corruption, however, apparently, this is how it was regarded in the West.

France 24 recalls that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has previously encountered a number of corruption scandals, the latest of which was associated with the purchase of low-quality jackets for military personnel at an inflated price. The purchased jackets turned out to be not even winter ones, as it was noted initially from the purchasing act. Moreover, their price was at least twice the market price.

      The West, first of all, is interested in this system itself. It holds the entire leadership of the country by bells. When the West wanted to fight Ukrainian corruption, Pavel Lazarenko went to the USA. And now, Yaytsenyukh buys with stolen money, about a dozen houses in California, Heletey Castle in England and nothing!

    The office of the President of Ukraine, in order to “defeat” corruption, has already appointed the “fighter” Umerov to the post of Minister of Defense instead of Reznikov. But this is unlikely to help, as they stole, laundered and removed the "margin" and will continue to do so. laughing

    So not Lithuania and not Ukraine have long been no longer de facto states. So, colonies with imitation of the presence of power and other attributes of the state.
