The United States government has bankrolled the corrupt Ukrainian regime with over $100 billion.

Much of that U.S. taxpayer money has gone towards military aid.

However, Ukraine has received more than weapons to fight its losing war against Russia.

A “60 Minutes” report summarized what the United States is funding in Ukraine.

“60 Minutes discovered the U.S. is financing more than weapons in Ukraine. The government is buying seeds/fertilizer for farmers, paying the salaries of 57,000 first responders and subsidizing small businesses,” 60 Minutes said.


60 Minutes transcript from CBS News:

In total, America’s pumped nearly $25 billion of non-military aid into Ukraine’s economy since the invasion began – and you can see it working at the bustling farmers market on John McCain Street in central Kyiv.

The late senator is revered in Ukraine because he pushed the U.S. government to start sending arms to the country after Russia first invaded – back in 2014.

While in Kyiv, we learned that three of McCain’s former colleagues were also in town: Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Richard Blumenthal and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham. They don’t normally agree on much – together, though, they’re some of the staunchest supporters of U.S. funding for Ukraine’s resistance.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: They’re on track to break the Russian army, and the only way they could possibly lose is if we pull the plug on them.

The wreckage of Russia’s war machine was on display for Ukraine’s independence day celebrations – even as almost a fifth of the country remains under occupation.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: People ask me, “Is it worth it?” Here’s what we’ve gotten for our investment. We haven’t lost one soldier. We reduced the combat power of the Russian army by 50%, and not one of us has died in that endeavor. This is a great deal for America.

Holly Williams: You’ve previously said that it’s the best money we’ve ever spent. That still true?

Sen. Lindsey Graham: Since we helped Churchill stand up to the Nazis.


60 Minutes broke down its propaganda piece in other segments on Twitter.


CNN writes:

The US government is about to run out of funding and a government shutdown is on the horizon.

In August, as part of a larger request that included domestic disaster relief funding, the White House asked Congress to approve another $24 billion for Ukraine. This money would go to a variety of things, including replenishing the Pentagon’s arsenal with equipment sent to Ukraine.

The most recent short-term funding bill pushed by Republicans included neither the disaster funding nor the Ukraine funding. But negotiations continue.

The existing Ukraine aid was all approved before Republicans took control of the House in a series of spending bills over the course of 2022. It has been spent in multiple disbursements by the Biden administration across the intervening months.

As 100 Percent Fed Up reported, the Pentagon said not even a government shutdown would stop American taxpayer money from flowing to Ukraine.
