As Westerners raid their savings to buy food and electricity…

The Ukrainian junta now sits on a staggering mountain of loot. The best part? No elections.

This is a record for the entire independent history of Ukraine. An incredible achievement for a country at war…

    Reminds me of this guy:

    Reportedly fleeing with ‘helicopter full of cash’, how did Ashraf Ghani fail to ‘fix’ Afghanistan? (ABC, 2021)

    As Taliban insurgents marched to Kabul last month, then-Afghan president Ashraf Ghani fled the country, leaving an opening for the Taliban to take control.

    Nikita Ishchenko, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Kabul, told reporters that Mr Ghani had fled the country with four cars “full of money” and a helicopter.

    “They tried to stuff another part of the money into a helicopter, but not all of it fit. And some of the money was left lying on the tarmac.”

    If Ukrainian defense collapses expect more than a few cash-filled helicopters.

    He’s trying not to chuckle.

    Reassuring to know that the world of the moneychangers can outlive that of the poor bastards in the killing fields.

    On the other hand … Zelensky might be approaching his use-by-date.

    Zelenski looks human compared to everybody else.

    Like all such photos, it might have been the temporary effect of a moment. But it sure does look like those photos of Biden at White House events where everyone is glad-handing and backslapping each other and no-one is paying him any attention at all.

    Everything in this corrupt puppet state is on Western-provided life support; substantially all of that money has been granted or lent by Western states to prevent Ukraine from imploding faster than a Dodgy Brothers submersible.

    That’s some GoFundMe.

    Great to see you, Fyodor. 👏

    I don’t believe for a moment they have a cashed up central bank.

    I accept that all the friends and helpers for the Big Guy have been skimming and trouser stuffing … but would they also ensure that a public fixture such as the central bank is well funded? I doubt it … that gold would be stuffed in a hundred secret sock drawers, and all those guys have an exit strategy. Money for the country itself? Pffft … not bloody likely.

    Great to see you back in the saddle, CL.
