Janet Yellen Joins Zelensky In Saying US Would Be "Responsible For Ukraine's Defeat"

•, by Tyler Durden

Yellen made the remarks Tuesday to reporters while on a trip to Mexico City, calling the funding "utterly essential" and as a pre-condition for the International Monetary Fund to keep funds flowing uninterrupted into Ukraine, according to Reuters.

"I've talked to members of Congress, my colleagues have. I think they understand this, that this is a dire situation and we can hold ourselves responsible for Ukraine's defeat if we don't manage to get this funding to Ukraine that's needed, and I'm including direct budget support here because that's utterly essential," Yellen said.

She issued the rebuke the same day that President Zelensky's chief of staff said something very similar before a security conference in D.C.

Ukraine aid will stop flowing in a matter of three weeks. Zelensky's chief of staff Andriy Yermak said the following words Tuesday

If the United States postpones military aid to Ukraine, there is a "big risk" the country could lose its war with Russia, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's chief of staff Andriy Yermak said Tuesday. 

Speaking at the U.S. Institute for Peace during a visit to Washington, Yermak said failure by Congress to approve more aid to Ukraine could make it "impossible" to liberate more territory captured by Russia and "give the big risk to lose this war."
