Zelensky Complains $45 Billion For Ukraine In Omnibus Bill Is ‘Not Enough’

Fact checked

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has told Congress that the eye-watering $45 billion worth of aid designated for Ukraine in the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill is “not enough.”

Congress is weighing whether to pass the massive $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that designates $45 billion in military and economic aid for Ukraine. The $45 billion is in addition to the $66 billion lawmakers have already approved of taxpayers’ money for Ukraine.

On Tuesday, Zelensky released a video complaining that $45 billion of US taxpayers’ money is not enough.

“We are not in an easy situation. The enemy is increasing its army. Our people are braver and need more powerful weapons,” he said about the Ukrainian war. “We will pass it on from the boys to the Congress, to the president of the United States. We are grateful for their support, but it is not enough. It is a hint — it is not enough.”

Breitbart report: Zelensky’s claim that $45 billion is not enough aid – on top of the already approved $66 billion – comes as the omnibus bill is expected to approve a military budget of about $858 billion, $45 billion more than Biden had requested from taxpayers.

Critics of Ukrainian aid say much of the funds have ended up in the hands of American defense contractors. Others have demanded the previous sums of money approved by Congress should be audited before aid more is given. Still others are concerned the sheer amount of money spent defending Ukraine’s borders is too much.

American taxpayers have given more aid to Ukraine than is sent in 2020 to Afghanistan, Israel, and Egypt combined. In just a few short months since the Ukrainian war, the amount of U.S. aid to Ukraine also surpassed three of the largest recipients of U.S. military aid in history.

The New York Times reported Sunday the “[m]ilitary spending next year is on track to reach its highest level in inflation-adjusted terms since the peaks in the costs of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars between 2008 and 2011, and the second highest in inflation-adjusted terms since World War II — a level that is more than the budgets for the next 10 largest cabinet agencies combined.”

  1. The Catholics have put Zelensky in and they’re finding him against the Orthodox. It’s that simple Theyre using him to be the mask.

  2. Yet Z’s wife went on a $40,000 shopping spree in Paris on our dime, and this fool wants more of our money. I hope the new GOP House cuts these funds post haste.

    • Foooooooool ?

      Why would HE be a fool ?
      It’s the Average American Taxpayers who are the FOOLS to finance this Fascist !

  3. The IMF Jews are in bed with the Turks, Saudis, and NATO, they were worried about a Trump audit of the Federal Reserve and about Trump and Putin teaming up to destroy them once and for all . . . Trump was a vote for peace, and peace does not make money for the weapon industry. Trump wouldn’t give the deep state the shadow wars they wanted in Syria and Ukraine, so they rigged two US elections . . . and the first thing they did afterwards was send troops to Syria.
