«I was never paid, I in fact ruined myself economically by going to Ukraine. I couldn’t imagine doing that for any value.»
Em resumo, mais ainda que uma guerra, uma confusão. Ucranianos contra ucranianos, nacionalistas (segundo este) pouco natofilos, o proxy gang, e por aí adiante.
Agora, quando a nossa esquerda woke e a nossa direitinha toina torcerem os narizinhos sensíveis a estes companheiros de esquina, sempre podem capacitar-se que, ao menos estes, em compensação, sempre deram o coiro à causa. Não é só saliva e eloquência monga de monta-sofás e mata-gambuzinos.
E o segundo capítulo, em tandem com o primeiro:
The Monaco Battalion
While Ukraine has undergone a general mobilisation affecting all men under the age of 60, many former and current high-ranking officials, politicians, businessmen, and oligarchs have moved to safety abroad – mainly to the EU.
(...)“There is little to prevent a field commander from diverting some of the equipment to buyers, aka the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians or whomever while claiming the equipment and weapons were destroyed…”
(...)«Medical supplies are also being stolen. The Telegraph reports that “some of the donated supplies later made their way onto the hospitals’ pharmacy shelves: priced, and listed for sale.” Health workers appropriate medicine, bandages, and medical equipment, and resell them to patients for whom they were intended to be free, the article says.»
(...)«War for some, Gucci for others
Enormous cash flows from Western countries are continuously used by corrupt Ukrainian officials for personal enrichment and to acquire luxury goods.
In a recently busted corruption scheme, Odessa customs smuggled shirts, backpacks, sports shoes, belts, and other luxury items by Givenchy, Gucci, Polo, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Armani under the guise of army equipment.
«To take another example, in May 2022, Western countries abolished customs duties for Ukraine. Within a week, over 14,000 passenger cars were imported into the country.»
Em resumo, um mimo. Coisa edificante de se ler.
