Busy Volodymyr Zelensky Stops By Washington For Money and Arms

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has been super-d-duper busy. He was at the Cop28 Climate Summit in Dubai and then he was in Argentina for Inauguration of Javier Milei. While there, he held the first ever discussions with the Prime Minister of Cape Verde (who knew?) and took a phone call from French President Emmanuel Macron where they discussed how much the French Defense Package will increase Ukraine’s firepower. Now, Volodymyr is in Washington D.C. for meetings to shake the money tree to discuss aid to his country.

I have in the past been accused of being sympathetic to Vladimir Putin. There is nothing I can write to convince those people that I long for the day the Putin assumes room temperature. Hopefully, it will be in a fashion similar to how he has removed troublesome people from the scene himself. I also would like to acknowledge, again, that Joe Biden allowed Putin a “minor incursion”. None of that matters. Ukraine has been in this grinding war for close to two years. We either have to help Ukraine or prepare for the consequences. Shit or get off the pot.

Thanks to nasty, old man Biden we have been generous with cash to Ukraine and stingy with the weapons systems. For instance, Ukraine will finally get needed F16s by the end of this year with eight more in 2024 and five in 2025. The grind of this war has go on for defense contractors. $75 billion and counting in aid to Ukraine, just from the U.S.

Zelensky was at the National Defense University to discuss the war with the “students”. There, he was introduced by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

Here is part of the write-up from the Washington Examiner:

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin welcomed Zelensky with a prefatory pledge that “America’s commitment to supporting Ukraine against Russian aggression is unshakeable.” The applause that followed the line couldn’t silence Zelensky’s apparent recognition that this support has been shaken and might fail, a prospect that has stirred an array of anxious appeals to the West.

Zelensky argued more broadly that the war in Ukraine has high-stakes implications for Western security as he cast the conflict as the beginning of a Kremlin effort to re-litigate the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

“Since 1989, freedom’s enemies got stronger, trying to turn their annoyance at freedom’s success into a comeback,” Zelensky said. “Russia’s war on Ukraine isn’t just about some old-fashioned dictatorship trying to settle scores, real or imagined. It’s not just Moscow trying to split Europe again. It’s Putin attacking that big shift that happened back in 1989.”


Zelensky, whom Biden invited to Washington with the apparent goal of tipping the balance in that debate, tried to strike a rhetorical note congenial to the Republicans.

“People like Putin shouldn’t even hope to conquer freedom,” he said. “And we can show our children and grandchildren what real confidence is, as was shown to us … when in Berlin the great words were spoken: ‘Tear down this wall.’ We need no less confidence now than President [Ronald] Reagan had then.”

That was a smooth move by Zelensky, mentioning Ronald Reagan. No wonder the Ukraine President got a standing ovation from the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon. On his way out to the National Defense University at Fort Leslie McNair, a Daily Wire Reporter tried to ask Zelensky about “OUR BORDER WALL” and money for Ukraine:

It’s good that Republicans will be involved but they are feckless. As much as the idea of Joe and Zelensky scares me:

This alone is enough to put me off my kibble:

We are so screwed.

    Nothing says freedom quite like delayed or canceled elections…

    Can we be honest here? Republicans want to cut off aid because Biden. I have seen this movie before when the Democrats banned aid to South Vietnam in 1974 because Nixon. In an interview General Giap admitted that he had no plans to restart the war until Congress cut off aid and Nixon’s ability to respond. He knew that Nixon was provide the support to the South to defeat him again.

    Republicans want another Kabul moment for 2024. Repblicans are also stupid because unlike 1975, they don’t control the press to create this narrative, the Democrats do. The narrative will be “Republicans helped Putin defeat Ukraine.”

    Many countries will delay or cancel elections when their country is under attack and/or partially occupied. Parliamentary elections were cancelled in the UK were cancel until after VE day. I guess that makes Churchill a dictator, right? The 1864 Presidential elections were held because the Civil War was fought entirely in the South.

      Interesting points, John.

      I would add that Zelensky was following Ukrainian law and its constitution in postponing elections. From Foreign Policy:

      Both constitutionally and legally speaking, the Ukrainian government is simply following Ukrainian law. The Ukrainian constitution and martial law legislation clearly prohibit presidential, parliamentary, and local elections from taking place under martial law, and Zelensky’s comments last week were merely a repetition of what other Ukrainian government officials have said on this topic in recent months.
