You don't have to believe it, but be aware of this.
Soon, #SquidProJoe #Biden will go back to retirement where he can reminisce with himself about how many world leaders he's beaten like a drum.

#Biden admitted exerting a BILLION $ of pressure getting #Shokin fired.
After the decree dismissing Shokin was published on April 3, 2016, the governments of the United States and Ukraine signed a loan guarantee agreement worth $1 billion, on June 3.

The #ObamaBiden administration refused to provide weapons to Ukraine, and help in fighting pro-Russian rebels.
The administration feared that lethal aid would provoke Moscow.

So what did the #ObamaBiden administration give him?
Instead of RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades), we provided MREs (meals ready to eat) — food rations.
A Pentagon official put it at the time, “We are sending MREs while they are being invaded by an aggressor.”

"It was on #Biden’s watch that the United States refused to deliver military aid at all [to #Ukraine]. Yet the same vice president who sat there impassively while Ukraine’s president begged for weapons now dares to cite the Russian threat to Ukraine in castigating #tRump?"
"President #BarackObama stuck to his refusal to provide weapons or other lethal military gear to Ukraine, despite a passionate appeal for help in fighting pro-Russia rebels by Ukraine's president."

Democrat senators #Menendez #Durbin & #Leahy wrote to Ukraine prosecutor general #Lutsenko expressing concern at the closing of four investigations they said were critical to the #Mueller probe, implying support for U.S. assistance to Ukraine was at stake.
washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/…
Remember when Democrat senators threatened reducing support for Ukraine if they didn’t reopen several “frozen” cases that would help #Mueller investigate interference in the 2016 presidential campaign? cnn.com/2018/05/04/pol… #JoeBiden #AdamSchiff #FlamingHypocrites
Apparently all corruption in Ukraine was #Shokin’s fault because he wasn’t prosecuting it. As soon as “solid at the time” #Lutsenko took over, everything became #supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, allowing release of the BILLION $ #ObamaBiden withheld.

Any time you hear the #BidenProtectionMedia wailing that #tRump denied (delayed) U.S. military aid to fight off Russia’s proxy mercenaries (not Russian soldiers) remember #Biden’s deaf ears when #Poroshenko begged for military aid.
wsj.com/articles/ukrai… #FlamingHypocrites #DNC
Ukrainian President #Poroshenko heads home with a $53 million package of additional economic & military aid from Washington.
What he didn't get from #BarackObama was a sought-for pledge of weapons for his forces fighting Russian-backed separatists.

Directed by the Kremlin at times while also allowed to pursue its mercenary greed, Wagner’s muddled identity is one of its strengths. “They can do extraterritorial work for Russia but not have it attributable directly to the Kremlin.”

Russia denied its role in the war in eastern Ukraine from the start. Russia claimed any Russian soldiers were simply volunteering in Ukraine, while on holiday.
#Wagner (#PutinsChef) gave #Putin deniability for sensitive missions, not only in #Ukraine.
As the war dragged on, eastern #Ukraine became a recruiting ground for #Wagner as the group extended its operations to other countries.
Rapid expansion saw a rising demand not for specialists, but for grunts whom critical Russian journalists sometimes refer to as “cannon fodder".
Do you believe that Ukraine is fighting for it’s survival against an invasion of Russian soldiers with thousands of casualties?
It’s nothing like that. And wasn't back when #ObamaBiden denied all military aid to #Poroshenko.

"Volker & I could see the armed & hostile Russian-led [not Russian] forces on the other side of the damaged bridge across the line of contact. Over 13,000 Ukrainians [inaccurate] had been killed in the war [over six years], ONE or TWO a WEEK."

Eventually, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry stated that the numbers recorded by the National Museum of Military History were the official ones, although still incomplete, with 4,266 deaths (4,125 identified and 141 unidentified) cataloged by 7 May 2019.

Read this for a good history of the conflicts in Ukraine.
Following months of protests as part of the #Euromaidan movement, on 22 February 2014, protesters ousted the government of #ViktorYanukovych, who had been democratically elected in 2010.
