Ukraine aid, also known as the Slava Slush Fund was formally introduced into the Senate as S. 3522, the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022 on January 19, 2022, more than 5 weeks before the Russian intervention in the 8-year ongoing Donbas war.[1]

These 57 House members -- all Republican -- voted against the $40 Billion aid to perpetuate war in Ukraine bill, HR 7691.[2]

In the first year, the Congress provided about $116 billion.

The bill pays the salaries and pensions of Ukrainian government officials, effectively making Ukraine a U.S. colony. The United States would have to borrow the $40 billion from the Peoples Republic of China in order to fund the bill.[3] The amount of funding was enough to guarantee, even after the demilitarization of Ukraine, defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the battlefield, capture of the capital city of Kyiv and fall of the Kyiv regime, to continue a terrorist partisan insurgency in Russian held areas and a hybrid war into the Russian Federation itself for several years into the future.

Only $6 billion will actually make it to Ukraine.[4] Within a week after the bill was passed, Alexei Arestovich, press spokesman for Ukrainian strongman Volodymyr Zelensky said, "The West is now passing the test of adequacy – and is gradually failing it by not supplying us with the necessary weapons."[5]

One of the first actions of the Ukrainian parliament after receiving the aid was to vote themselves a 70% payraise.[6] In addition to corruption at all levels in the government and military, raking off funds for personal enrichment, US aid has been used to build soccer stadiums. A CBS News documentary found that only 30% of U.S. aid sent to Ukraine ever made it to the front lines.[7][8]

Initial tranche

In addition to paying the salaries of the civil service system of the corrupt Ukrainian government which terminated social security retirement benefits for Ukrainian citizens of Russian origin,[11] the U.S. Congress supplied:

  • 6500 anti-tank complexes;
  • 1500 MANPADS Stinger;
  • 20,000 anti-tank grenade launchers;
  • 7,500 small arms;
  • 108 M777 howitzers;
  • 220,000 155 mm shells;
  • 121 Phoenix Ghost drone;
  • 700 Kamikaze drones Switchblade;
  • 200 M113 armored personnel carriers;
  • Hundreds of Humvees;
  • 4 HIMARS systems;
  • 20 Mi-17 helicopters.

Voting against

Kiel Institute

Ukraine aid, October 2022.

The Kiel Institute, a German think tank, was the only organization attempting to track the blank check Congress wrote to Ukraine in 2022. Their numbers include all aid from January 24, 2022 to October 3, 2022. According to Kiel, in that time period the U.S. transferred military and non-military aid worth $54.43 billion to the Zelensky regime.[12]

FTX scandal

Tens of billions of dollars in American Military Aid to Ukraine, which was allegedly to be used to fight Russia, was cash that Ukraine did not use to fight Russia, but instead invested into FTX cryptocurrency exchange. Ukraine was receiving money from the US, Ukraine sent it to FTX, and FTX sent it to Democrats, who originally voted to send it to Ukraine. It appears to be pure criminal money-laundering, and a criminal conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws.

The CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, was the #2 donor to the Democrats in the 2022 Midterm elections, second only to George Soros.[14]

FTX's bankruptcy filing on November 12, 2022 revealed that FTX suffered from $10-$50 billion in liabilities with almost zero assets.

Among those liabilities are “investments” made by the Zelensky regime.

Up until its bankruptcy filing, FTX was a 'partner' with the World Economic Forum (WEF).[15] The FTX CEO's aunt, Linda Fried, is on the board of the WEF.[16] Sam Bankman-Fried's mother, Barbara Fried, is the founder and president of a left-wing Super PAC called ‘Mind the Gap’ (MTG), "dedicated to helping Democratic political candidates win elections. The PAC earns millions of dollars in donations primarily from Silicon Valley executives 'who are keen on quietly funneling massive political donations into the Democratic Party'. The mission of MTG is to “empower private political donors to strengthen our democracy by providing them with evidence-based guidance on the electoral strategies, tactics, and programs that are likely to achieve the greatest impact in a given election”, according to Influence Watch.[17] Bankman-Fried’s brother, Gabe runs an organization called Guarding Against Pandemics, which is financed by Sam Bankman-Fried.[18]

Lame duck slush fund

Tens of billions of dollars were transferred to Ukraine then laundered back to Democrats in advance of the 2022 Midterm elections.[19]

On October 20, 2022, nineteen days before the 2022 Midterm elections it was reported that amid concerns that a new Congress could take a more skeptical view of aid to Ukraine, members from both parties were looking to lock in billions of dollars in military assistance to the neo-fascist Kyiv regime before newly elected members were sworn in in January 2023.[20]

The bipartisan idea under consideration would use an omnibus spending bill during the lame duck session to secure a much higher level of military and other assistance than prior aid packages for Ukraine.

The amount would be enough “to make sure [Ukraine] can get through the year,” a Republican senator with knowledge of the matter told NBC News. “It’ll make the $12 billion look like pocket change.”

The new aid package could be within the range of roughly $50 billion, congressional aides and a source close to the Zelensky regime said.[21]

The bill was passed in the House in December 2022 by a vote of 350 to 80, bringing the total aid scam to over $100 billion for the 2022. The funds will prop up salaries and pension for the near defunct Kiev puppet regime until April 2023, should the regime last that long.

FY 2024

Writing in Newsweek, Lt. Col. Daniel Davis said in September 2023,

"US leadership would be wise to adjust its policies to reflect the reality of Ukraine’s slim chances against Russia’s fortified lines...Washington has spent nearly $113 billion over the course of this war, provided Ukraine with an astounding volume of modern arms and ammunition, and delivered an impressive array of training and intelligence support...After almost a year of preparation, it hardly dented the Russian lines...Rather than repeating over the next year and a half what has already not worked—potentially costing Ukraine yet additional hundreds of thousands of losses—it’s time to try something that has a chance to succeed...In other words, it’s time to acknowledge objective reality and employ policies that can work”.[22]
