Kerry Promises Ukraine $1 Billion Bailout (Detroit, Not So Much)

Tyler Durden's picture

Having threatened Russia that "any military move would be a grave mistake" and sounding awefully like a "line" to be crossed, US Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters that the US is ready to bail out Ukraine...


One has to wonder how many US jobs this will create (or save)? Or will Ukraine offer unlimited vodka to citizens of Detroit (or Puerto Rico for that matter)?


As Reuters headlines show:


Via AP,

Secretary of State John Kerry says the United States is planning to provide Ukraine with $1 billion in loan guarantees and will consider additional direct assistance to the former Soviet republic.


Speaking to reporters at the State Department on Wednesday, Kerry said it was "urgent to move forward" in assisting Ukraine following the ouster of its Russian-backed president. But he said it was also urgent for Ukraine's interim authorities to enact reforms, curb corruption, and prepare free and fair elections.


The U.S. aid would be part of a planned massive international assistance package that was expected to include European contributions as well as loans from global financial institutions.

Where is he going to that all that worthless USD from? His chin?

And yet, there is an argument could be made that spending USG money over there is better spent than over here.  Think about that...

How long before Ukraine gets a central Bank with a GS blessing?

National Bank of Ukraine, established in 1917/18 some time in that December. I think Kerry just officially welcomed them to the IMF and the major players union.

What a sick joke - both he and his offer.


$1-billion isn't going to do squat for Urraine.


Dear Ukraine:

If yesterday were Tuesday Feb 25, 2014, that would be a grave mistake.

Toothless wonder.  Russia's already in, you idiot.

So obvious this is an energy war, Ukraine just the unfortunate country that Putin needs to export through.  Does Detroit have oil under it?

It's OK if you lie to a war with Syria though:

The American media has blacked out an account by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh demonstrating that President Barack Obama and the US government lied when they claimed to have proof that the Syrian government carried out a sarin gas attack last August on areas near Damascus held by US-backed “rebels.”

Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, US ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power and other top officials declared categorically that the August 21 attack on Eastern Ghouta, which reportedly killed hundreds of people, had been carried out by the Syrian military. They, along with the leaders of Britain and France, sought to use the gas attack to stampede public opinion behind their plans to attack Syria, cripple the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, and install a puppet government.

When we lie it is for democracy or some shit.

(idk, I get tired at the end of the day and cannot come up with anything good. ) 

We are almost always behind these attacks. Oh, and Israel.

I have to find a way to tell the brain dead folks out on Main street that they should hold their disgust seeing dead babies and properly blame who is responsible.

Cause you can damn well be sure our government has a hand in 95% of them.

Fuckers in Langley probably get a hard on planning these things.

Not only could that argument be made, it is made by those who intend to use that USG money as chains to bind the Ukrainian people.

Think about that...

Get real.  Detroit is fucked because it's 95% black. Were it 95% white it'd be like Portland.  All black cities are like Detroit.

$1 billion dollars?  That's it?    LOL!  Will he thrown in a few bottles of Heinz (ADM Corn syrup) catsup with this deal? 

Maybe the people in the Ukraine will wake up and realize they have been played by the USSA/EU/IMF/NWO.

Putin should write a letter to them like he did to the USA.  His letter to Americans was very good.  He sounded more like George Washington and Reagan then an Indonesian/Kenyan race hustler from Chicago.

There is bad blood mainly from Stalin and the same NWO banksters Zios.  Putin and the Russia Eastern Orthodox Church should reach out to teh Ukraine especially after this pathetic $1 billion bailout.

The people of the Ukraine can be serfs for the NWO like the Greeks, endlessly spied on like the Americuns or have a shot with Russia and hopefully some autonomy.

Maybe the people in Ukraine know the Russians are better at sticking to deals than the NWO.

Ukrainians - ask the Greeks how those loans from global financial institutions work out.

Ask Kerry why he is so cheap that he parks his yacht in RI to avoid paiying higher yacht taxes in MassHole.

Is the former prime minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko, a jew?

President of the All-Ukrainian Jewish Congress Vadim Rabinovich


"Especially because the mother Yulia Tymoshenko - a Jew..."

Campaign gets dirty: Leaflets smear Tymoshenko as ‘Jew’

"Unattributed leaflets referring to Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko as 'a Jew' and calling not to vote for her appeared in mail boxes in western Ukraine in the last week before the Feb. 7 runoff vote."

"It reprints an alleged facsimile by the prime minister’s father documenting his supposed Russian and Jewish background and asks why Tymoshenko is hiding her Jewish ancestry. The leaflet also features purported quotes by four individuals, including former presidential candidate Arseniy Yatseniuk, who claim Tymoshenko is Jewish."

"In an interview late last year, presidential candidate Arseniy Yatseniuk blamed the dramatic fall in his ratings in western Ukraine before the first round of voting on a national smear campaign that also alleged he was of Jewish ancestry. 'This country has latent anti-Semitism,' he said at the time."

The lesson from Ukraine: Bezplatno does not exist

"How many of those demonstrating in Kiev and cheering that Timoshenko female (why does she wear that stupid wig? and what's with the wheelchair?) remember why she was thrown into jail?"

"It would come as no surprise if that Timoshenko female miraculously rose from her wheelchair, allowing that blonde wig to fall to the ground and reveal a head bedecked with unkempt black hair (rather a different spectacle and a somewhat sinister one), proclaiming to all and sundry that the Euro Show is the way to go."

"As I write, President Yanukovich is still the democratically elected President of the Ukraine and there exists something called law and order. Not all Ukrainians are in Kiev, not all Ukrainians side with the starry-eyed youth on Euro-Maidan and the monsters hiding in their midst."

Is Tymoshenko simulating her disease?

"Against the backdrop of the reports of a hunger strike by former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko, a scandalous video that may be indicative of the simulation of her serious illness has emerged. The video is dated December 15, 2011, when Tymoshenko was still in Lukyanovka jail in Kiev, 'Vesti' reported. Even then, she complained of severe pain in her back and stayed in bed."

"A video posted on YouTube displays a woman resembling the former premier, who is moving around the cell with ease in high heel shoes and looking into the mirror. Suddenly she seems afraid of some noise and dives under the covers. The camera then shows a person resembling Tymoshenko's lawyer Sergei Vlasenko. The man helps her up - now a woman moves with difficulty."

"On Tuesday, Ukrainian prosecutors acknowledged that Tymoshenko was taken to the medical institution by force, but the prosecutor Gennady Tyurin said that the former prime minister was not beaten."

Please.  His "wound" was literally treated with bacitracin (aka neosporin) and a BAND AID.  It was not reported by the Navy corpsman who treated him as a combat wound.  It was reported as a combat wound by LT Kerry himself.  The guy has ALWAYS been a fraud.
