While Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was donning his best “I’m too cool to dress appropriately” sweatshirt in Washington, D.C., Russia warned that an increase in U.S. military aid to Ukraine would only make a bad, 10-month-long situation worse for the citizens of the embattled nation.
Speaking before the press in Moscow prior to Zelenskyy’s address before Congress, Kremin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stated that more Western weapons in Ukraine “leads to an aggravation of the conflict and, in fact, does not bode well for Ukraine.”
Pressed on whether Zelenskyy’s visit to the States would potentially lead to peace talks with Moscow, Pescov replied, “I don’t think so.”
As BizPac Review reported, Zelenskyy met with President Joe Biden in the White House before standing before Congress and demanding that struggling American taxpayers do more for his corrupt country.
Americans, don’t worry if you can’t afford presents under the tree this year, you’ll be happy to know you’re making an “investment” in protecting global democracy.
“I would like to thank you, thank you very much, thank you for both financial packages you have already provided us with and the ones you may be willing to decide on,” Zelenskyy said. “Your money is not charity. It’s an investment in the global security and democracy that we handle in the most responsible way.”

This, at a time when American cities such as El Paso, Texas, are being overwhelmed by thousands of illegal migrants crossing our open border with Mexico each and every day.
“We were reminded of [the border crisis] today when the president of Ukraine arrived at the White House dressed like the manager of a strip club and started to demand money,” said Fox News’ Tucker Carlson following Zelenskyy’s speech. “Amazingly, no one threw him out and instead they did whatever he wanted. ‘American taxpayers,’ declared Joe Biden, ‘will continue to give Zelenskyy whatever he demands for as long as it takes.'”
Included for the first time in the $1.8 billion Ukrainian Christmas stocking is “a Patriot missile battery and precision-guided bombs for fighter jets,” Fox News reported.
Meanwhile, while speaking with his top military brass, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow will “develop our armed forces and strengthen the capability of our troops” in response to lessons learned during its war with Ukraine, which began on February 24 when Russia invaded its neighbor.
Nuclear forces, Putin stated, are “the main guarantee of Russia’s sovereignty” and will be developed.
The controversial leader also noted that his nation’s new Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile will soon be ready to enter service. According to Fox News, it is intended to “form the core of Russia’s nuclear forces.”
And Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu touted an increase in volunteer contract soldiers to the Russian military, saying Russia would, in response to NATO ambitions from Finland and Sweden, form new military units in the western part of its country.
By the end of 2023, Shoigu expects 521,000 volunteer contract soldiers will be recruited, bringing the total to 695,000, a dramatic increase from the 400,000 contract soldiers the nation’s military boasted as part of its 1-million-member military prior to the start of the Ukraine conflict.
