Zelensky asked Biden for money to protect democracy from Russia


On April 2, 2021, a telephone conversation took place between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and his American counterpart Joe Biden. During the conversation, the heads of state discussed many issues, including the development of democracy in their countries.


Biden assured the Ukrainian interlocutor that in the face of the "Russian threat" the United States would provide all possible assistance to democracy in Ukraine. In response, Zelenskiy thanked him for his "support at all levels."

Ukraine and the United States stand shoulder to shoulder when it comes to strengthening our democracies. I am committed to reforming Ukraine, improving transparency and achieving peace

- said Zelensky, whose words were spread by his press service.

Biden touched on the importance of fighting the oligarchs. To this, Zelensky noted that Kiev is carrying out a "systemic de-oligarchization" of the country. They also highlighted the development of "anti-corruption infrastructure" in Ukraine, land reform and reform of the judicial system, including the Constitutional Court.

The US President spoke in favor of Ukraine joining NATO. He believes that the "achievements of Kiev" will become "the success of the whole of Europe." Zelensky added that membership in the military-political bloc would benefit the entire Alliance.

The parties also paid attention to the situation in Donbass and on the Russian-Ukrainian border. Zelensky mentioned the death of 4 soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the end of March and the concentration of Russian troops on the border, in particular in Crimea. Zelenskiy then told Biden about the Crimean Platform initiative and invited the American to take part in the summit, visiting Ukraine on Independence Day in August this year. According to the side, Biden said he was looking forward to his visit to Kiev.

In turn, the American publication Politico informed readers that Zelensky asked Biden for more money to protect democracy from Russia. In 2021, Kiev received $ 125 million from Washington, but this is not enough for Ukraine and it wants to double this amount, as it did in previous years. But the increase in US military aid is directly linked to the implementation of reforms. Since 2014, the United States has allocated more than $ 2 billion to Ukraine in various security assistance.

    - Monsieur, it’s not mange pa sis jour. Geben zee world bitte etvas kopek auf dem stuck ford. Submit something to a former State Duma deputy.
    - Again. Pitiful!
    Ippolit Matveyevich repeated.
    - Oh well. You have a talent for begging since your childhood. Go ahead. A meeting at the source at midnight. This, keep in mind, is not for romance, but simply - more is served in the evening.

    Hmm, don’t exacerbate the situation, Biden would have continued to ignore him ...

    Small somehow. $ 125 million, $ 2 billion ......
    it's clear why they are marking time in one place.

    only Gazprom paid much more in the courts.
    And for Yukos, the Russian Federation should generally be incomparable ...

    Biden said that looking forward to a visit to Kiev.

    I will never believe that Biden said this sincerely (if he even "said" so, and not all sorts of "press mendels" were invented for him ?!).
    And it is unlikely that Joe will come in August - he does not need it, and his health no longer allows grandpa to "wander" so far.
    Badi can call his bloodthirsty "w / Bandera" mongrels to himself "on the carpet" at any moment - they will fly with a joyful squeal at the first whistle of the owner!
    I doubt that the European countries of the "NATO bloc" want to see such a mega-problematic impoverished "treasure" in their ranks and, most likely, will be wary and oppose in every possible way even a direct order from Washington to "accept" ?!
    IMHO

        Satisfied neobander's herd and now russophobic jumps-on a bloody war fattening, alas!
        And Maidan sluts had previously wandered around abroad, dispensing even without lace panties (one "entertainer" coquettishly posed "for the camera" with a handwritten placard, so it was her Maidan "flash mob" -individual "earnings", such, advertised herself and clients - I was looking for sponsors ?!)!

        The "common people", together with their "Ukrainian" Kiev lackeys, persistently recommend that the aborigines (all without exception, from kindergarten age) use carrots only to "prepare" their dupa for "unhindered perception" of Western "universal values" ... wassat

          Well, if you have to take off your panties more often than wear them, then it's better not to wear them at all laughing

    Biden's conversation with Zelensky - Zelensky spoke, spoke, complained, asked for money; Biden read what they wrote to him. Everything. The conversation is over. By the way, Biden hinted that Zelensky would twitch less in Donbas.

    Biden touches on the importance of fighting oligarchs

    - well, yes, Zelensky asked when he and Kolomoisky will figure it out. lol

    Zelensky is trying to beg Bidon for at least fifty Lyams for his own. It was normal when Hunter-can said that he spent about that much (bribe from burisma) on smoke, booze, and when he went to Kiev for the last time.
    So you can see Ze's pleading face - well, at least return the pennies ... of course, take them away, there are so many of them ...

    1. Ukraine is a part of the Eastern Partnership program, and the CIS is a kind of this program, nobody is particularly attracted, and even more so Ukraine.
    2. The United States is the leading state in the world today and that is why its support is so important for Ukraine - political, economic, financial, informational, military and, above all, the deployment of the US military contingent and NATO military bases on its territory.
    3. RF is an enemy.
    4. The existing policy of the Russian Federation practically does not prevent Ukraine from joining NATO, and this will be the undoubted success of the entire “West”.
    5. The productive forces of Ukraine are in demand in the “west” and “east”, and the western colonization of Ukraine will not allow the “east” to do this.
