Chairman of the Russian State Duma : Ukraine will receive only 15% of $40 billion US aid

24.05.2022, Moscow.

Only 15 percent of the $40 billion aid promised by the White House will go to Ukraine itself, Chairman of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin wrote on his Telegram page on May 24.

Volodin said that 35% of the $40 billion will be allocated to the US Armed Forces, 45.2% to other countries, and another 4.8% of the $40 billion will go to fund assistance to Ukrainian refugees, reopening of the US Permanent Mission in Ukraine and funding other diplomatic support.

The rest will go to Kiev, but Kiev will have to return the entire amount to Washington, which justified this decision to allocate these funds referring to additional supplemental appropriations.

Volodin reminded that in the United States there was an understanding that Kiev was not even capable of servicing the debt on its own, let alone paying it back.

Therefore, according to the chairman of the State Duma, “the last resources, in particular grain, are being taken from Ukraine.”

Volodin wrote that “Washington and Brussels are not going to really help Ukraine, to solve its economic and social problems. They need it to fight to the last Ukrainian against our country.”

Earlier, even before US President Joe Biden signed the “emergency” aid package for Ukraine, the minority leader in the US Senate, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, had said that the aid package for Ukraine would help open the port of Odessa. He said that if this fails, the absence of Ukrainian food is going to resonate throughout the Middle East and Africa as well.
