Media: the aspirations of euromaidan crashed on the impenetrable oligarchic system of Ukraine

64
Financial assistance channeled to Ukraine is not spent on supporting reforms, but on enriching the local elite, writes Neil Abrams, political risk adviser for investors in developing countries, and political science professor Stephen Fish in an article for The Washington Post.




"Over the past 25 years, Western donors have allocated billions of dollars to post-communist Ukraine with two main objectives: to help the country build a self-sustaining, competitive market economy, and also to lay the legal and regulatory framework for the formation of a legal state," the newspaper quoted the article Look.

The authors wondered if “Western aid is actually able to support the implementation of reforms in Ukraine, or does it only allow the entrenched elite to continue to rob the state”.

According to them, the government crisis that erupted in Kiev "became the latest confirmation that the hopes that accompanied Euromaidan broke against the established system of influence of the oligarchs."

“This is a long-established scheme. Western governments and lenders periodically freeze aid to Ukraine when signs of corruption and arbitrariness become too glaring to ignore. But as soon as the government signals an intention to reconsider their behavior, cash infusions are resumed, ”experts write.

According to them, "for every dollar of financial aid that flows into the country (Ukraine), 6,25 dollars flow illegally."

Meanwhile, the newspaper reminds that the IMF announced its intention to "continue negotiations with the new government of Ukraine on the further implementation of the financial assistance program."

          With regards to the so-called. "relics" of the present-day Outskirts, they are worthy of only one thing - burning and burying them at the landfill, where the "anthrax" spores are concreted.

      The word something beautiful was found for these thieves - OLIGARCHS. But in fact, all state power institutions practically do not function, starting from the prosecutor’s office and ending with some municipal entities. And even if some kind of activity is warming there, then it is so corrupt that Burkina Faso is just resting. How Ukraine with such unlimited corruption is going to continue to exist - I can not imagine.

    Dear, what are the aspirations of which EuroMaidan, what are you talking about? The task was set by the states to local bad boys to ruin the country of Ukraine to the detriment of the country of Russia.
    You can take yourself how much you take.
    The task is completed, the entourage in the form of show-offs is provided in the Western media.
    Conclusion - our specialists are pierced, the conclusion from this is either to change specialists, or leaders like DAM betrayed us all. Everything is very simple, how can one withdraw 1,3 trillion green American Tugriks from the country and yell that there is not enough money in the budget?

      THE CONCEPTS WERE DETERMINED OR SHIPPED OUT - FUNNY UNIONALLY ALL TRANSACTIONS WITH DOLLARS ARE PERFORMED UNDER THE CONTROL OF AMERICAN BANKS i.e. FUNDS ARE ALWAYS LOCATED IN NEGROSTAN BUT ON DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS If the banking system sees a competitor in the form of payment systems of transfer agencies, it immediately destroys them. Liberty example A. Budovsky received a reserve of 6 billion transfers of virtual currencies 20 years in prison. Negro money is simply the repayment of an early loan with the right to frolic in the bastards in power at the commission. Therefore, when they talk about the money of the IMF and other goats, this is food for fucking journalists eating from the grants from the West.

    (“Is Western aid capable of actually supporting reform in Ukraine, or is it just allowing the entrenched elite to continue to plunder the state” ?????)

    It is difficult to think of a more stupid question. For cognition it is necessary to study the "mat. Part" - namely, the mentality of the oligarchy and specifically - the "Ukrop oligarchy", which is headed by the current self-proclaimed "hetman", candy-chocolate pan Valtsman. It is a wonder either the naivety or the stupidity of Western sponsors who persistently pour money into this "black hole". Of course, they (money) will be torn into pockets (this is, as according to V. Vysotsky: "... the triangle will be drunk, be it a parallelepiped, be it a circle, a louse is eaten ...").

And here it is not a matter of equipment, of oligarchs, or other things, the fact is that the West supported the Maidan for one simple reason: MAIDAN WAS ANTI-RUSSIAN !!! The task was to incite the outskirts of Russia, which we now actually live with, and they don’t even consider reforms and other crap))) They will support Hohland with handouts while they greet us!

        From this point - you are right. But again, it's time for the "west" to understand from the experience of 10 centuries of history that the more pressure on Russia, the more united and angry we are. It is better to be friends with us, and not to quarrel. And all these injections into the former "kraina" - money down the drain (or rather into the pockets of thieves and repeat offenders). There is (IMHO) such a feeling that Ukrainians will wake up and move away from the fear inspired by the Bandera s.v.o.l.o.ch.yu. In the meantime, yes ...:

    Already by the amount of money spent on the Maidan, including the oligarchs, it was clear that this was such a business project. Local oligarchs agreed with "non-local" to rummage in the "bins" of Maidania, after the victory, of course. Well, pinch the taxpayers, their own and others. And the whole ideology is a fog, so as not to interfere. Russian oligarchs will be more abruptly, how to wipe them off from the trough? Yes, only this way, ideologically ...

    Yes, this is the technology of the Americans that subjugates the top leadership. So it was in Russia after the collapse of the Union. And future residents will give loans, submission in the future of the country. Until a certain point they will give and will steal. Then they will try to transfer to self-sufficiency, but debts will already hang. Thank God, we have interrupted this orgy of theft (in whole tranches).

    Did the authors of the Maidan overseas realize that they had changed the awl for soap. Not only that money for reforms, etc. evaporate, so they still received a Nazi territorial education, which should be primarily feared in Europe. Few emigrants from Africa, so still armed Bandera in large numbers are at hand. They will not rock the boat in the direction of Russia, but touch the soft Europeans for the "udder" is it. Summer will pass quickly, autumn and winter will put everything in its place. Ukraine really needs not to buy gas and oil, but to procure firewood.
