Marshall Fund expert: Ukraine has ceased to be viewed by NATO and the entire West as a cornerstone of security

In the West, the topic of problems with financial support for Ukraine has become topical. Moreover, there is talk on both sides of the Atlantic that the allocation of funds for Kyiv is becoming a problem.

Thus, the German Marshall Fund has made, perhaps, the most accurate “diagnosis” for Ukraine. Foundation expert Jacob Kirkegaard said that Ukraine “is no longer something special and is not seen as a cornerstone of Western security.”



A German expert in an interview with British journalists says that Ukraine has ceased to be associated with security both in the West in general and NATO and the EU in particular. And even more so, Ukraine is not considered an integral part of US security.

Jacob Kirkegaard:

This is a devaluation of Ukraine's military efforts. And, I believe, there is no other assessment. If you were Vladimir Putin, you would now say: my expectation of holding out in Ukraine longer than the West is justified.

It is noted that next year the Kyiv regime will need at least $41 billion, of which it has so far received a little more than two. But even these funds, in the absence of further tranches, can be quickly spent, which means Kyiv will have to turn on the printing press. But this will accelerate inflation.

German expert:

The next week may actually turn out to be decisive for the future of Ukraine. Moreover, the IMF is going to publish a report on its financial situation.

      "They screwed me up and abandoned me"
      "Waste material (for example a condom)"
      "Nothing personal just business"
      Typical Anglo-Saxon mentality.

        In Ukraine, contraceptives are washed and used a second time, but in Europe and the USA they are used only once, and then sent to the toilet.

          I don’t understand how a poor colony can be the cornerstone of security... If all of NATO’s security rests on this stone, then it’s not worth a penny... Sooner or later (the sooner the better...) this stone is all the same will fall into the abyss, and NATO will fly there after it, taking with it the rest of the world... NATO, I beg you - replace the stone and lean on something else... laughing

      Kyiv will have to turn on the printing press.

      Well, they turn on the machine, so what? Everything that was possible (from toilets to trees) was repainted in zhovto-blakit, all that was left was to cover everything with hryvnias to the heap

      What a miser. Ukraine to them this, Ukraine to them that. Zelensky is ready to drive the entire population into trenches (graves). And they feel sorry for the unfortunate 60 billion. And poor Ukraine needs 5 per month just for the budget deficit. You also need ammunition and weapons.
      That's how they would give 10 trillion dollars at once, so Ukraine would immediately defeat Russia (well, or they would steal everything, no matter how much you give, everything will go into action). And here. We spent 200 billion and that’s it. They started counting. The US still has 33.5 trillion in debt. Well, it would be 43.5. Nobody would have died. :)

      Zakharova needs to demand that the West forgive all debts to Ukraine, empty out its pockets and let Germany pay reparations to all the countries of the former USSR. Let them fight there from such attacks

      You should not count on the enemy getting tired of this war. Journalists and all kinds of analysts will whine, but no one will leave us alone.
      Ukraine provides a wonderful training ground for preparing for a real modern war, and it is foolish to think that only we are using it. Both the Americans, the Germans, and the British are refining their weapons and studying the experience of using them, why on earth should they stop doing this?
      At the same time, all the disadvantages go exclusively to Russia and Ukraine, while the Westerners are rearming their armies and modernizing production for quite modest money, and they hope to return them if our “leadership” is tempted by negotiations and does not complete what they started.

      Foundations, journalistic dumps, gatherings like for a green world... The world is already green, the owners of the green want it to remain that way for as long as possible, but they are calculating reptiles. The calculation shows one thing - if there is no way to fight the changes, you need to lead them. Frontal attacks will subside, the main thing is not war, the main thing is maneuvers. The creatures are very skilled at this.

      These are the poor ones! Yes, I will explain to them in a moment that there is a “cornerstone of security” for them! Don’t stretch the paws of your rakes and don’t meddle with your “values” to others and you will be safe.

      The latest press is so relishing the problem of financing that it becomes like a show. The problem is raised to an absolute level, and then a solution is suddenly offered (in this case, funding).
