President Joe Biden signed a funding bill to keep the government running through September and send $13.6 billion in aid to Ukraine. The money for Ukraine will go both to helping refugees fleeing Russia’s invasion and to defensive equipment and training for the country’s military.
“Where’s the U.S. money going?” asked Publish What You Fund U.S. representative Sally Paxton. “If it goes to Chemonics, then who does it go to? And how do you hold the NGOs, whether they’re in the Ukraine or in the U.S., accountable if none of this chain of spending is ever reported?”
When we needed help for Katrina no one wanted to send a dime, even the lil cheap temp homes they made black people that suffered from Katrina pay for them or get out! What kinda help is that? Ukraine is getting all this help Zelinski The Rat is on every social media platform he can find to so-called pressure everyone to send help, he has been getting billions from the US and not to mention all the other countries he’s getting money from.
a Nigerian student who fled the Russian invasion is understood to have been detained in Estonia after travelling to the country to join relatives, and is now being threatened with deportation.
This is despite a EU protection directive dated 4 March which states that third country nationals studying or working in Ukraine should be admitted to the EU temporarily on humanitarian grounds.
Maria Arena, chair of the EU parliament’s subcommittee on human rights, said: “International students in Ukraine, as well as Ukrainians, are at risk and risking their lives in the country. Detention, deportation or any other measure that does not grant them protection is not acceptable.”
The findings of the investigation, which was carried out in collaboration with Lighhtouse Reports, Spiegal, Mediapart and Radio France, comes after it emerged that scores of Black and Asian refugees fleeing Ukraine were experiencing racial discrimination while trying to make border crossing last month.
‘They took us here to the camp… I’m scared’
Gabriel*, 29, had been studying trade and economics in Kharkov before war broke out. The Nigerian national left the city and arrived at the border on 27 February, where he says his phone was confiscated by Polish border guards and he was given “no option” but to sign a form he did not understand.
“It was written in Polish. I didn’t know what I was signing. I said I wouldn’t sign, but they insisted I signed it and that if not I would go to jail for five months,” he said in a recorded conversation with a Nigerian activist.
The student said he was then taken to court, where there was no interpreter to translate what was being said so that he could understand, and then taken to a detention centre in the small village of Lesznowola.
“It is a closed camp inside a forest,” said Gabriel, speaking from the facility. “There’s no freedom. Some people have been here more than nine months. Some have gone mad. I’m scared.
“We escaped Ukraine very horrible experience, the biggest risk of my life […] Everything was scary and I thought that was the end of it. And now we are in detention.”
Gabriel said there are at least two other Nigerian students in the camp, along with students from Cameroon, Ghana, the Ivory Coast and French African nations.
Guards at the centre said inmates have their mobile phones confiscated, with only those who have a second sim card given a phone without a camera.
Many can only communicate with the outside world via email – and even this is said to be limited to certain times.
Another individual detained at the centre is Paul, 20, a Cameroonian who had been studying management and language at Agrarian University Bila Tserkva in Kyiv for six months when the war started.
The Ukraine-related spending includes money for humanitarian aid and $6.5 billion for the Defense Department — $3.5 billion to replenish equipment sent to Ukraine and $3 billion for U.S. troops who are helping NATO member states in Europe. It also provides money to support Ukraine’s energy grid and to combat disinformation.
I think he is stockpiling that money because his people have left for the most part and so where is the money going? In his bank account because the rat has not shut his mouth for two months and he is all over the US with this BS because he knows the US is the quickest to help. I’m tired of seeing his weasel lookin face, sit cho ass down and apply that money to your needs and stop talking so damn much. You need to be motivating your people not begging all the damn time. He is richer than you think! https://www.theguardian.com/news/2021/oct/03/revealed-anti-oligarch-ukrainian-president-offshore-connections-volodymyr-zelenskiy
WASHINGTON — As the United States readies $1 billion in loan guarantees to the new government in Ukraine, along with even more aid for reforming elections and cleaning up corruption, one thing is clear: The public is unlikely to know where that money is going for some time, if ever.
The story of Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky! https://youtu.be/Kn2TCq6R8Tw
Since 1992, the U.S. has sent $3 billion to $5 billion in aid to Ukraine, with only cursory public disclosure. The U.S. State Department operates an online database, ForeignAssistance.gov, but names of foreign recipients are often left out, and entire sections are blank. Furthermore, the disclosure often comes long after the money has been distributed.
Since the end of February, dozens of U.S. military cargo planes have landed on airfields near the border, packed to the brim with weapons. According to the Pentagon, it’s the largest authorized transfer of arms in history from the U.S. military to any foreign country. Huge convoys of humanitarian aid have also poured across the border, ferrying everything from diapers to bulletproof vests in eclectic modes of transport: a Belgian ambulance on loan to a playwright from Berlin; a minivan helmed by a Ukrainian commando; the jeep of a British car salesman, who had driven for days to join the fight as a volunteer, one of thousands coming on their own accord from the U.S. and Europe to help Ukraine defend itself.
In a key development, Russia on Sunday refuted Ukraine’s accusations of the alleged slaying of civilians in the small town of Bucha on the outskirts of Kyiv. The Russian Ministry of Defence claimed that photos and videos published by Ukraine, accruing Russia of war crimes, are a provocation while noting that not a single local suffered any violent aggression when the city was under the control of the Russian Armed Forces. It also claimed that scenes were staged to distribute photos, and videos via western media.
Russia Claims Civilian Killings In Bucha ‘staged’ To Distribute Visuals Via Western Media!
I think there is an element of truth to do. I could be wrong but if Zelensky is that thirsty for the US to send even money and aid after all the money it has sent i think Zelensky is not above doing something like that because the people we are talking about lived in the cities to the east Russia took over and gave up. If he Zman is willing to hack the Grammys broad cast to hustle for more money i can believe he would do something like this to garner more support for money and aid. What he really wants are jet fighters but he can’t seem to get the us to part with any so he is will to do whatever it takes to get them. This is what it looks like to me.
It is pertinent to note that earlier in the day, Ukrainian authorities claimed that scores of slain civilians have been found on the streets of Kyiv’s suburbs of Bucha, Hostomel and Irpin after the departure of Russian forces. They alleged that some of the victims were shot in the head and had their hands bound.
Stay off social media until it’s necessary. Haiti didn’t get a quarter of the help he got in all the years they have been dealing with the Hurricane and the three earth quakes?!?
The money he has gotten in a month overshadows all the money that was given to Haiti in all the years they had to deal with the plight and still haven’t been fully restored because people have been busy, plotting, stealing, scamming, lying, (US), all the other countries didn’t see a need to help like they are helping Ukraine and the ppl of HAITI STILL NEEDS HELP!
