Hunter Biden picked up bags of Ukrainian cash and all Ukraine got was another Russian invasion.
We haven't forgotten when you bragged about
withholding $ in order to fire a Ukrainian prosecutor
who was investigating Burisma, where Hunter Biden — your son — was a board member.
So...about Russia's Ukrainian puppet government
"All four of the other Ukrainians named in the communiqué once held senior positions in the Ukrainian government and worked in proximity to Paul Manafort, former President Donald J. Trump’s campaign manager"
US ORDERS ALL UKRAINIAN BADDIES, MODELS, 10/10S AND EVEN CUTIES TO BE EVACUATED TO AMERICA IMMEDIATELY
Your daily reminder that Ukraine is our ally, Russia is our enemy, and nothing makes Putin happier than hearing what countries will do “if he invades Ukraine,” because he already invaded it in 2014 when he annexed Crimea in violation of international law and Ukrainian sovereignty
People are discussing whether Russia colonised Ukraine. My advice: read Ukrainian authors, all will become clear! Shevchenko, Lesya Ukrainka, Khvyl'ovyi, Dziuba, Andrukhovych, Zabuzhko, & many more have been writing about this forever. 🧵 1/8

There’s also the fact that every single one of the pro-Kremlin politicians named by the UK as being under consideration by Russia to install as the new leader of a pro-Russia Ukrainian govt worked with Trump’s former campaign manager… https://t.co/y5CeghhmwV
Russia has deployed 75% of its combat power to the Ukrainian border, even redeploying units 4,000 miles from #UlanUde near the Chinese border to Gomel, Belarus. Do not be in any doubts about how incredibly serious this is. Why it’s not on every front page, is beyond me.
Breaking! #Ukraine's president Zelensky speaking to Ukrainian Foreign Intelligence Service:
“We have learned to contain external threats. It is time to launch an offensive to secure our national interests. We are united in wanting our territory returned immediately”. https://t.co/B2ymQA8c5A
of course i don't want war with russia. do you know how many tv appearances i'd have to make? how many op-eds i'd have to write? expert panels i'd have to sit on? can you imagine how much funding my think tank would get? it would be a terrible thing for the ukrainian people.
🇨🇿 Czech Republic MoD Jana Černochová: "Let me be clear, Ukraine is our ally. If there is war, we are ready to offer a refuge to their woman and children. No Ukrainian request for sending military yet, but if they do so, we will discuss it."
The Soviet Union's legacy, and collapse, hangs over today's crisis in Ukraine and Vladimir Putin.

The “medium to long-term” is a curious choice of timeframe with more Russian tanks arriving at the Ukrainian border and diplomats evacuating. And - I’m afraid - Biden’s decisions on Afghanistan and his recent statements on Ukraine have made not helped in anyway https://t.co/3Vslzc1xAx
Russian cyberattacks on Ukrainian government and businesses have escalated dramatically -- it's not 1,2,3-- it's 1000s. And every one of them has the potential of leaking into computer systems worldwide. Update your security software daily.

Attacks on & capture of large cities much less likely, these Ukrainian experts say. "But special attention should be paid to strengthening the capacity to defend Kyiv."
"The country must prepare for war. This is the main thing. Readiness is absolutely and critically important."
Be very cautious of any politician who is more concerned with the Ukrainian border than with the U.S. border.
From a Ukrainian post by Lena Samojlenko, about war:
If you want to prepare, prepare to lose everything. When my town was occupied, the banks collapsed first. Then medicine disappeared from pharmacies, then doctors were gone. Then water. A packed suitcase didn’t save anybody.
Far too many of these "The US/West is at fault for Ukraine" takes are wildly overblown.
But when it comes to creating the kinds of financial secrecy networks Russian/Ukrainian elites spent years using to loot the countries and hide their finances? That's absolutely on the West.
According to new findings shared with The Daily Beast, the cyberattacks against Ukrainian government networks have been lying in wait for months and appear to have links to the Russian military
The actions of the German government last week have been downright shameful. By deliberately hindering Estonia and the U.K from supplying Ukraine, Germany is no longer just being pacifist, it is outright sabotaging the Ukrainian defense.
"No need to dramatize the situation" Basically the EU just told the Biden admin to calm tf down.
Real shame Americans might die because of Joe and Hunters payoffs with the corrupt Ukrainian govt. Too bad that was never legitimately investigated. https://t.co/S2TGw9P9l8

I see lots of this junk and next to zero compassion for the Ukrainian sons who will die at the hands of Vladimir Putin.
You can pretend these people don’t exist because they’re far away as much as you want. You can do everything to deflect the blame from Putin all you want. https://t.co/QPGXz5TY8y
Not even exaggerating, here's some posts from 2015 with the NC Ukrainian Association sending drones and other gear to Donbass and Right Sector Batallions, whose flags are included for reference. https://t.co/bGfNxz7el2 https://t.co/0iI3C9PMfY
There's London welcoming billions in illicit Russian wealth. There's Wyoming housing shell companies tied to a crooked Ukrainian PM. There's the entire legal and lobbying industry—hi, Paul Manafort!—still servicing any of these figures.
There's *decades* of Western culpability.
