US to offer financial assistance to Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia


The United States pledged millions of dollars in additional aid to Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia on Saturday, deepening American support to the Western-leaning countries on Russia's border.

Vice-president Joe Biden announced the extra aid, which must be approved by Congress, during a visit to Kiev for the inauguration of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

Washington pledged $48m to Ukraine, $8m to Moldova and $5m to Georgia after Biden met the presidents of the three countries.

Secretary of state John Kerry, meanwhile, said on Saturday he was hoping for steps to ease tensions in Ukraine now that the new president has been sworn in.

Both Moldova and Georgia are pursuing association agreements with the European Union amid a regional crisis over Russia's actions in Ukraine.

"Why don`t they spend that money on new Veterans Hospitals?" Because, in its final analysis, money is a figment of the imagination, just like the national debt is a figment of the imagination.

If THEY were to focus their efforts on helping veterans, it just might come out about how the whole money system is pulling the wool over the eyes of the whole unit known as the public of the world. Better that they let the veterans die than having their money schemes found out by the public.
