American aid to Ukraine is evil for all ("Antiwar.com", USA)



Last week, the Congress overwhelmingly adopted a bill to allocate a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine and to impose sanctions on Russia. This bill is likely to be signed by the president in the coming days. And if you think that American citizens will send their money to Ukraine for the last time, do not flatter yourself. This is just the beginning.

The aforementioned billion dollars was torn off from American taxpayers, but such assistance is evil for the Ukrainians themselves. Not a single needy Ukrainian will receive a cent of this money, since these funds will be used to assist international banks - holders of debt obligations of the Ukrainian government.

In accordance with the terms of the IMF’s plan to assist Ukraine, the life of the average Ukrainian will only get worse. The government will freeze wage increases, significantly increase taxes and significantly raise the cost of energy.

And the bankers will get the money, and the IMF will establish full control over the economy of Ukraine.

The aforementioned bill also provides for the allocation of more American taxpayers' funds to government-sponsored "democracy-promoting" NGOs, as well as to build up propaganda by the US government in Ukraine through Radio Liberty and the Voice of America.

The United States has "promoted democracy" in Ukraine for more than 10 years, but, apparently, this "advancement" has not brought any good. Recently, violent protesters overthrew a democratically elected government. And this is the antagonism of democracy, because in a democracy, governments are replaced by honest and free elections. It is shocking that the US government and its NGOs sided with the protesters! If we really cared about democracy, we would not take sides, because this is not our business.

Washington does not want to discuss their own actions that triggered a coup d'état. Instead, he focuses on attacks on Russia's reaction to the turmoil inspired by the Americans in the house of Russian neighbors. The aforementioned bill adopted by the Congress expands the range of sanctions against Russia for its support of the referendum in Crimea, where the majority of the population voted for entry into the Russian Federation. The United States, which had a hand in the forced revision of borders in Serbia and other countries of the world, suddenly declare that Ukraine’s international borders are not subject to revision!

Those of us who do not easily take for granted the need to impose sanctions, manipulate elections and send our troops abroad are criticized and accused of lack of patriotism. Something similar happened before, when many of us opposed the Iraq war, the US invasion of Libya and other countries. This is happening today with those of us who do not want to dive into the next - cold or hot - war with Russia because of a small peninsula that has no meaning for the United States or their security.

      Yes, American "generosity" knows no bounds! They ask for 28 billion, gave (?) One! And they are also trying to convince the whole world that the "square" is the most precious thing for the democrats. This is with the US budget in several trillion.

    Clarification, not a single country where the United States is "promoting democracy" has brought good. Only chaos and sacrifice. Let them make a revolution for themselves, show the world an example of how to kill a country, and we will see.

    TBILISI, April 9 - RIA News. A Georgian official burned a ribbon from a wreath that the delegation of Slovakia laid on the April 9 tragedy memorial in Tbilisi, confusing it with the colors of the Russian flag, Georgian media reported on Wednesday.

    The memorial is located in the very center of Tbilisi, near the old building of the country's parliament on Rustaveli Avenue. It was installed in memory of the events of April 9, 1989, when 20 people were killed during the dispersal of the rally.

    On Wednesday, representatives of the Georgian government, the public, political parties and organizations laid wreaths and flowers at the memorial. The delegation of Slovakia paid tribute to the victims the day before.

    Interpressnews agency reports that the deputy head of the administration of the Samgorsky district of Tbilisi Beso Gazdeliani was involved in the incident. Gazdeliani refused to apologize for what happened, saying that the delegation of Slovakia itself was to blame, the agency said.

    “I have great respect for Slovakia, and for the representatives of this country, who decided to honor the memory of the victims, but this is their mistake. The delegation could not place a ribbon with the image of flowers identical to the Russian flag on the wreath, but place there an inscription on behalf of those who lays the wreath. They should have understood that placing such a ribbon would cause a corresponding reaction. The desire to burn the ribbon was not only my reaction, but also the reaction of the people gathered there.

      Three errors:
      1. Slovakia made a mistake in laying flowers.
      2. Slovakia was mistaken that it chose such a flag.
      3. Holland was mistaken in choosing the wrong flag.
      And anyway, why did you come with such a flag? We have a reaction.
      Georgian philosophy is very ancient and the shortest in the world: "A Georgian never makes mistakes and does not apologize, even if he is wrong."

The overwhelming majority of western Ukraine took the side of the separatists and fascists, but they will receive the same attitude towards themselves. This is Boomerang's law. The east of Ukraine rebelled against Bandera and most likely when civil war, this side will ask Russia for help, but she will not refuse, and then the interest of this whole play will begin under the title "no need to throw stones at the bear."

My wife erased this episode from my memory and really forgot the word completely! Now I went over, read it behind my back and said-
    In ... you write it, it was a terrible dream, it was not!
    But it was! And we served and fought no matter what! And here is the award-Crimea, etc. What next? Putin knows what to do!
    PS 1995, this is about the Ukrainian military in the Crimea. not an army from the word, at all!

    You won’t get enough of all the previous stars. But you deserve it to the fullest.

    Maybe the agent is "smoked"?

    I don’t understand, but why don’t we show that the American side is crap there, crap here, it’s already crap everywhere. For each country, let him answer to world society. We must also attack with claims, let them go in defense, you look and shut up.

    The wolf helped the mare, the tail and the mane were left of such help, the same fate awaits Ukraine, but they don’t want to see or hear it, because they are under the drug euphoria of anticipation of joining the European Union and joining NATO. but it’s inappropriately dragging those people into the abyss who have the desire to go the other way, who do not want to be all their lives with outstretched hands to ask for handouts from Europe.

    Must take! How did they write here that $ 5 billion of American taxpayers raised patriotism in Russia - so let's return the southeast of Ukraine, or are American investments still needed to raise patriotism ?!

    They (Russians) are mocking our sanctions!

    Yes, not over sanctions, but over those who, instead of helping one and battles with others, introduce caricature sanctions and do so. so ... don’t rip your ass off.

    In a word, wimps!
    Instead of friendship - interests, instead of happiness - benefits, in the name of the future - loans, with bandits - contracts.
    Wimps!
