Ukraine Rocked By Corruption Scandal, Wave Of Top Officials Resign: Sports Cars, Mansions & Luxury Vacations As People Suffered

Source: ZeroHedge.

Some liken the resignations of top officials to rats leaving a sinking ship. Others claim that Zelensky ordered the resignations as part of a pure-hearted anti-corruption effort. Another possibility is that the shakeup is preparation for a new phase of the war.

I am somewhat inclined toward the last of those speculations, given Germany’s sudden decision to provide tanks to Ukraine.

      Horse Hockey!!!

      We have discussed the corruption repeatedly and that Zelensky was attempting to address and fix it. He got a little sidetracked by being invaded. But good for him to, even in the middle of an invasion of his country, to root out the corrupt members of government.

      No, there aren’t. For there to be good guys in Ukraine, the U.S. will have to send them.

      1. I’m with you, but I think the administration has already made the decision. We’ll be throwing away the tanks we send unless we provide the operators and mechanics that go with them.

          Bull Puckey!!! Training is being provided to the Ukrainian Army. They have been trained on American armaments previously and are much more adept at war fighting than the rapists, murderers, thieves and child molesters Putin is throwing at them.

          Naysayers like you and Don seem to hate freedom, unless it is your own.

          1. RE: “The training is taking place in OKLAHOMA, jack ass.”

            Yes, I know. And in Poland and Romania.

            “Just last week, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl told reporters that the Abrams is a complicated, expensive, difficult to maintain and hard to train on piece of equipment. One thing Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has been very focused on, he said, ‘is that we should not be providing the Ukrainians systems they can’t repair, they can’t sustain, and that they, over the long term, can’t afford, because it’s not helpful.’

            “For the Abrams to be effective in Ukraine, its forces will require extensive training on combined arms manuevuer — how the tanks operate together on the battlefield, and on how to maintain and support the complex, 70-ton weapon. The Abrams tanks use a turbine jet engine to propel themselves that burns through at least two gallons a mile regardless of whether they are moving or idling, which means that a network of fuel trucks is needed to keep the line moving.”

            Up until yesterday U.S. policy was to NOT send Abrams tanks to Ukraine, for the reasons stated by the Under Secretary. Because of the policy change, and the condition of the Ukrainian army at present, I believe U.S. personnel will be needed to operate and maintain the tanks we send.

            Furhter proof hat you only ay attention to what Putin’s spokepersons and sycopants tell you to beleive.

            The Ukrainian Army has soemthing to fight for. THe dregs of Russia being sent to the meatgrinder in Ukraine don’t even wnat to be htere.

            Then there is this breakdown from Jonathan V Last @ The Bulwark:

            “Will the tank matter for Ukraine? Early in the war we talked about how cheap, man-portable anti-tank weapons had revolutionized the war and possibly made the tank obsolete.

            And Russian tanks have been rendered essentially toothless in Ukraine, with some 1,450 Russian tanks killed, captured, or abandoned.

            These failures will be the subject of deep study in the coming years, but the main problems seem to be:

            Design flaws in Russian armor

            Technological superiority of Western anti-tank platforms

            A significant Ukrainian intelligence advantage

            A failure of Russian armor tactics”

            You must think the U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Policy is a Putin spokesperson or sychophant.

            Discussion with you is useless because you are so poorly informed.

    Never thought we’d have a recent president who was one either.
