5 spent billions of dollars to support Ukrainian democracy

85
According to the news agency "Vesti", Victoria Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, had to admit that after the collapse of the USSR, Washington spent 5 billion dollars on “supporting the aspirations of the Ukrainian people for a stronger, democratic government”.


“The US has invested about 5 billions of dollars in Ukraine since 1991, since it became an independent state again after the collapse of the Soviet Union. This money was spent on supporting the aspirations of the Ukrainian people who want to have a strong, democratic government that represents their interests, ”said the politician on the American television channel CNN.

It is worth noting that earlier Nuland has already spoken about the financial support of the “democratic” processes on the territory of Ukraine by the American authorities, but later she refused from her words.

Also, a representative of the US State Department commented on recent events, saying that the White House "did not spend money to support the Maidan." According to her, it was a "spontaneous movement."

In addition, Nuland noted that one should not compare the events in Kiev with what is happening in the east of Ukraine. "Everything that is held by the protesters in Kiev is held legally, with the consent of the government, Rada or rented from the owners," she said.

According to Nuland, the Kiev authorities adhere to the Geneva agreement. In particular, she noted that a draft broad amnesty had been submitted to the Verkhovna Rada.

It is worth recalling that last week the representatives of Ukraine, the Russian Federation, the United States and the EU signed a document that calls on the participants in the Ukrainian conflict to refrain from extremism, provocation and violence, disarm illegal formations and free illegally occupied buildings, and begin a dialogue on constitutional reform. Later, the representatives of Moscow said that they were disappointed by the US assessments during this meeting. According to representatives of the Russian Foreign Ministry, "the American side is trying hard to whitewash the actions of the current Kiev authorities, who have embarked on a violent suppression of protest speeches of the population of the south-eastern regions, expressing legitimate indignation at attacking their rights."

      5 spent billions of dollars to support Ukrainian democracy

      I already read the word "democracy" as "struggle with Russia", in every place, in any article, I already associate this word with this.

        Let him tell about his contributions to democracy to his narrow-minded citizens. We know what the money went for. Here, for example, several tenders were discovered that were posted at the beginning of September 2013 on the US government website: https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=cab00f041930a4e03a5ae3f1bd6
        6ab14 & tab = core & tabmode = list & =

        This is the site of US procurement, where a tender is still hanging on the re-equipment of one of the schools in the city of Sevastopol (more precisely, school number 5) under one of the engineering bases of the US Navy. There (in the same section of the site) you can find a tender for the repair of a children's hospital in Simferopol with the re-equipment of one of the buildings in the US Naval Hospital.
        They say they wanted democracy ... Crimea, they also wanted a sea-based missile defense (+ Aegis) off our coasts - that’s what they wanted and what they spent.

      Yes, they successfully spent the money for themselves. During 23, no integration processes with Ukraine, a country on the brink of civil war, Slavs pitted against each other. Little money with such results. Compare how much Russia has given Ukraine over the years, and still half the country is screaming moskalyaku on a hulk.

      USA - already beyond the bounds of such a public debt. As soon as the dollar depreciates, the population has all the weapons. And there will be only one wand = the rescue of the oligarchs from the United States - to unleash a world war, which, as some expect, will destroy the United States empire and bury Europe from the inside.

    Albeit a distorted, but acknowledgment that Brennen flew in, that 5 billions nevertheless fell into the hands of someone. In Ukraine, there is.
    Lies and climbs out of the mouths of Euro-Atlantoids, but part of the truth also climbs.
    As a result, everything that Putin and the Russian Foreign Ministry said in the eyes of the "world community" and those who are beginning to play an increasing role in the political systems of NATO and EU countries (national parties, opposition), will soon be able to generalize the conclusions that Russians are not lying , and their rulers and the United States went to the end.
    Sooner or later, disjointed protests of people in these countries and in the USA can take on a more massive and organized character, because the one who brought a storm at the neighbor himself will fall from this storm.

I remember exactly how on TV this same Nuland, when handing out pies and cookies on the euromaidan, in response to the request to help democracy in Ukraine, said that the United States invested in democracy, in these processes that we see here, $ 5 billion . These words served as the basis for the joke that the United States paid 5 yards for Crimea for Russia.
    And now he is talking about spending over 23 years. Apparently, in the States themselves, these amounts, about which she let slip, were a shock!

The Americans created a commission to investigate the embezzlement of these funds, but got confused and gave up on it.

    "According to Nuland, the Kiev authorities adhere to the Geneva agreement."

    Yeah, and the public on the Maidan hangs out exclusively with the permission of the "Maidan" government and the buildings are also seized with permission. True, the government itself seized power at the suggestion of the Maidan, so, apparently, a hand washes a hand.
    "US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland believes that the protesters who seized buildings in Kiev have all the necessary permissions, in particular from the authorities," she said on April 20 in an interview with the American television company CNN.

    "You cannot compare the situation in Kiev, where everything that is still held by the protesters is held in accordance with licenses, with the permission of the government, in agreement with the Rada, or in the presence of an agreement with the owners of the buildings, with what is happening in Eastern Ukraine," Nuland claims. "

    Well, in Kiev, it means that Buchu was created with permission ... Washington, but to the Southeast, did not ask permission from the Amers. How so? Hence, they will not be amerskih cookies.

    USA, thanks to your taxpayers for the return of Crimea! Chic gesture, Obama, it’s not for nothing that you were nominated for a Peace Prize!
    We are waiting for the accession of the Southeast!

    What you need to learn - how to invest money effectively.

    It must be admitted that the money spent by Russia went to Ukraine without any benefit to us, mainly into the capsules of oligarchs and officials. Subsequently, the West held the Ukrainian elite for this money and controlled it.

    If Russia had spent part of the funds invested in Ukraine and influence on the propaganda of the ideas of Russian unity in Ukraine, this would not have happened.

    We, as always, did not bother with future problems, considering that Ukraine is "brothers forever". As a result, our help is turning against us - everyone believes that Russia is blackmailing "poor" Ukraine with gas

      Nothing. There are more cruel things! For example, cancellation of debts from the DPRK in the amount of more than 20 billion

      I don’t know, maybe it’s worth talking about good every time, when you give someone money ... Perhaps they will remember ...

    I would call it a mess and instability, and not some aspirations for something ...

    The logic is not penetrable! Unwavering! If a frostbitten de ... bi ... loid, with the intelligence of a snail, will conditionally shoot an American, then he is undoubtedly a militant, terrorist, murderer, rapist, etc. But if the same undeveloped embryo stops shooting at a representative of "democracy", but starts shooting, for example, a Syrian or a Russian, then this is already a fighter for freedom, independence and, of course, for "democracy". I don’t know how anyone, but when you hear the word “democracy” you do not want to start looking in the clear sky for an attacking bomber ....
    As Abama said, democracy won in Kosovo, a national referendum. I just forgot to say about the amount of this "democracy" dropped from NATO planes. Now it is Ukraine's turn to learn the charms of their "democracy".

    Why the hell ...

    If that were so, how many friends we would have in the world.

    Pragmatism is needed, but with good, of course ...

    There is no "Ukrainian conflict". Any agreements with fascists dreaming of shooting Russian-speaking people with nuclear weapons are pointless. Only the complete ousting of maidanut marasmatics from the political arena of Ukraine.

    - The White House "did not spend money on supporting the Maidan."
    - Do not compare the events in Kiev with what is happening in the east of Ukraine.
    - Everything that is held by protesters in Kiev is held legally, with the consent of the government, Parliament or rented from the owners
    - Kiev authorities adhere to the Geneva agreement.


    Lord, when will we learn to grind our tongue and shamelessly lie?
    After all, this is the strongest weapon!
