The United States warns Ukraine

against any corruption scandals in

the country in 45 days after the interim budget agreement


  • Ukrainian MP Jaroslav Geleznyak revealed that
  • Kiev received a warning from Washington that corruption scandals
  • should not occur in the country in 45 days, on the back of

the passage of the US Provisional Budget Law.


Following the approval of :

the United States budget without allocating funds to Kiev

the Ukrainian Deputy Parliament wrote in its channel on

"Telegram":

  • We received a serious warning from Washington.
  • wished in the West that there would be no high-level
  • corruption scandals in Ukraine for at least 45 days .



He added :

It's very exaggerated :

not very fair. 

However :

this should have been discussed before the problem reached this scope.

Therefore, 45 days are needed without a major corruption scandal. 



For many :

years Ukraine had been rocked :

  • by corruption scandals and had become particularly
  • acute during the Russian military operation
  • with funds not only deducted from the country's own budget

but also from funds sent by Western States to support Ukrainian forces.


In the United States

  • grumbling about the billions of dollars that appear to
  • but where specifically it has evaporated -- it is often unclear.



The auditors are also unable to

handle these operations, and Ukraine's Defence Minister

has been caught up in an outright corruption scandal.


Against this backdrop

the United States is reducing spending on its needs.

The American press noted that what is happening is like global money laundering.


Washington :

has sent Ukraine a list of reforms that require it

to continue military support


The list also included the enlargement of

the observer boards of Oker Inirgo and Naftogaz to

include an additional person, without reference to that person's nationality.


The document also

calls for the strengthening of the National Anti-Corruption Office

which must have the right to wiretap

and exceptional powers to investigate resounding corruption cases.


At the same time

Ukraine's security apparatus must be reformed

which will continue to embrace the tasks of

fighting espionage

terrorism and cybercrime, according to the document.



The document calls on :

the Ukrainian leadership to adopt legislation that

will re-oblige all State officials

and judges to disclose their assets


as well as establish a monitoring board with the Ukrainian Defence

Industry Corporation and bring arms purchases in line with NATO

standards :

while ensuring transparency

accountability and competition in defence procurement .


The United States'

demands in the letter also include the reform of

the Ukrainian Customs and Border Guard

as well as the reforms of the police


the Department of Defense

the Office of Economic Security

the Supreme Court to fight corruption and others.


The document calls on

the Ukrainian authorities to achieve reforms within 18 months.


US expert :

Putin runs a long-term game and we have to do like him


Richard Nelson wrote in The Washington Post that the United States and its allies should launch a "long-term game" in Ukraine, as Russian President Vladimir Putin does.


The conflict in Ukraine had recall the importance of long-term competitive strategies during the cold war, the main point of which was to match your strengths with those of the enemy.


Russian President Vladimir Putin

  • has an idea of such a long-term thinking
  • and the Russians know the right to know
  • that impatience may be a shortcoming

for democracies that prefer simpler and shorter choices.


He noted that :

"Ukraine's support in the United States was beginning to suffer from cracks"

and that Vietnam and Afghanistan had taught

the United States

that political will might be more decisive than military balance.


He continued:

"Mr. Putin is playing a long-term game. We should also do so. "


The Ukrainian forces began their counter-offensive last June 4 with NATO

trained brigades armed with western materiel


but so far this attack

  • has not yielded any tangible results on the ground
  • and the world has seen Western military mechanisms
  • burned in battlefields, causing a wide resonance in the West.


US expert:

Fighting in Ukraine exposed deadly US vulnerability

  • The inability of Western armies to adapt their military tactics to
  • a changing world was particularly evident in the use of
  • outdated methods of penetrating minefields

which did not produce results for Ukraine's military in its counter-attack.


He continued :

The West is preparing for the wrong war

drawing on the experience of its armies in two decades of

fighting against rebels and terrorists.


The Pentagon has recently realized that its focus on counter-insurgency

has undermined the skills needed to fight a large-scale automatic war. 


In his view :

if the United States :

and its allies entered into a battle with Russia and China

which possessed similar or superior technology, including drones

field artillery, surface-to-air missiles and hypersonic missiles

all that could bring serious consequences for Western countries.


The Ukrainian :

forces began their counter-offensive

last June 4 with NATO-trained brigades armed with western materiel

but so far this attack :

has not yielded any tangible results on the ground

and the world has seen Western military mechanisms burned in battlefields

causing a wide resonance in the West.
