The Swamp Bet on Ukraine
Source: National File
‘Progressive’ billionaire donor George Soros, born in Hungary, has been advocating for years for the world community to provide more than $50 billion to Ukraine to form a military bulwark against oil exporter Russia.
The Obama administration agreed with Soros’ policy, though Vice President Joe Biden held up a billion dollar U.S. loan guarantee to Ukraine until the nation fired the prosecutor-general looking into the gas company Burisma Holdings, which featured his son Hunter on its board.
Former White House national security adviser John Bolton also agreed with Soros, assuring his internationalist audience at a speech funded by Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk’s foundation that President Trump would not be able to radically transform U.S. foreign policy against the wishes of the neoconservative/neoliberal policy class.
