Biden regime seeks $33 billion more for Ukraine

Samizdat | April 28, 2022

US President Joe Biden has asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in funding to prop up Ukraine in the ongoing conflict with Russia. A vast part of the massive package is destined for additional military and security aid, while the rest will be used for economic and humanitarian assistance.

“The Administration is requesting $20.4 billion in additional security and military assistance for Ukraine and for U.S. efforts to strengthen European security in cooperation with our NATO allies and other partners in the region,” the white House said in a statement.

Unveiling the package during his speech at the White House, Biden said it was “critical” for the lawmakers to adopt it. “We need this bill to support Ukraine and its fight for freedom,” he said, admitting the price was not “cheap.” “But caving to aggression is going to be more costly if we allow it to happen,” he stressed.

The US administration wants the aid package to get designated as emergency spending, so that it does not have to be offset by spending cuts elsewhere. Apart from the massive aid package for Ukraine, Biden is also seeking new powers to target wealthy Russians the US administration believes to be ‘oligarchs.’

“I’m also sending to Congress a comprehensive package that will enhance our underlined effort to accommodate (sic) the Russian oligarchs and make sure we take their ill-be-gotten gains. We’re going to accommodate them, we’re going to seize their yachts, their luxury homes, their ill-begotten gains,” Biden stated, struggling with the world “kleptocracy” to describe those wealthy Russians to be targeted. “These are bad guys,” he said eventually.

If enabled, the proposed powers would allow US authorities to “streamline the process for seizure of oligarch assets,” to sell these and to funnel the proceeds to Ukraine.

The US alone has funneled more than $3 billion in military aid to Ukraine since the ongoing conflict broke out late in February. Washington’s allies poured in lavish economic and military aid to Kiev as well, with certain Western officials – including British PM Boris Johnson and top EU diplomat Josep Borrell – openly stating they wanted Ukraine to beat Russia on the battlefield.

Moscow has repeatedly warned the West against ramping up aid for Kiev, stating that this would only prolong the ongoing conflict and inflict further damage on Ukraine, as well as suffering on the country’s people.

  1. “US President Joe Biden has asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in funding to prop up Ukraine in the ongoing conflict with Russia”.

    Unbelievable. Most “Civilised” countries in “The West” have National Health scheme INSURANCE to protect their citizens from “Medical Bankruptcy”, but, in the USA that is regarded as “Socialism”. But there is UNLIMITED funds available, to kill people around the World for the Military Industrial Complex, (and Israel, of course).
    So American Tax Payers get “screwed” by the MIC, and countries like Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Lybia, etc etc get BOMBED back into the Stone Age. There is something terribly wrong with this THEFT of Tax PAYERS money.

    I believe that Evil “American” Rupert Murdoch and all of the American Oligarchs, pay No(or very little)Tax to the USA Government at all. What happened to “Government, of, by, and for the People?

    Hasn’t anyone noticed that there is something terribly wrong with the USA(Government)?

  2. The presidency should just Nuke itself and America now. It will quicken the destruction of the country and get it over with. Biden who is not calling the shots is impaired with dementia. The people around him make as much sense as he does.

    • “Biden has dementia”…..not to mention “Dumb Gerry Ford(“Can’t fart and chew gum at the same time”), Ronald Reagan, who’s head wobbled when he spoke, GW Bush, who was unable to speak English, and said things like “Miss-underestimated”, and of course Biden, whose wife has to tie his shoe laces every morning.

      I think they’re called, “Useful Idiots”…..Just smart enough to sign their names to “important Legislation” but, unable to comprehend what is going on around them….

      • Don’t forget the 2 pedophile psychopaths, Bill and Hillary. Or Lyndon Johnson and before him FDR who handed the White House over to Communists and Zionists. I could name many more Presidents who shouldn’t have had the job such as Woodrow Wilson or Teddy Roosevelt but suffice to say American Hubris, Greed, and Stupidity have been going on for a long time.
