'Pro-Western Ukraine' Today: 100 Richest Persons Control Assets Equal To Half Of National Debt

One of the largest newspapers in Germany, Süddeutsche Zeitung, released an article providing a critical look the current economic situation and level of corruption in Ukraine. The article goes contrary to the current trend of praising the pro-western Poroshenko government in the mainstream media.

The article points out a critical economic situation in the country, which urgently needs foreign investments to solve at least part of its problems. However, this kind of investments appears to  be unlikely because of a high level of corrpution and dysfunctional justice.

Süddeutsche Zeitung cited economist Olexander Honcharov, who says that the wealth of 100 richest Ukrainians grew 12 times faster than the economy. The 100 richest Ukrainians, some of whom have built their wealth with often dubious maneuvers, control assets of USD37.5 billion –  a half of Ukraine’s national debt.

At the same time, the income of ordinary Ukrainians decreased dramatically. Currently, the minimal wage in the counry, according to official data, is 130 EUR. In fact, this wave is even lower.

Despite this, no oligarch or high-ranking official has ended up in prison in Poroshenko’s presidency for corruption or dubious business. There is nothing strange in this. Poroshenko is one of the oligarchs.

    It’s the Jewish U.S. financial democracy that wants to dominate the world, no? Very few ultra-rich and millions of starvation deaths. They made a coup in the perspective of the permanent export of the financial-technocratic-Nazism created by the Jews Rumsfield, Wolfowitz, Kristol supported by (AIPAC), the largest and most influential US Jewish lobby that Brzezinsky himself criticized. In Ukraine, to suppress the starving people who should make a French revolution, they even have martial law, imprison and kill opposition journalists and invent non-existent Russian aggressions. This is the US export of their technocratic-nazi-democracy after the September 11th, Dick Cheney new Pearl Harbor attack. Wolfowitz and Rumsfield have betrayed Saddam their intimate friend. Today Mattis resigns not because they betrayed the Kurds who evidently consider sub-human, but the ally Israel that is the one who decides at the Pentagon.

      And Brzezinsky was originally Jewish!

      Tell me why you think Rumsfeld is Jewish. It was said he has Norwegian heritage. I know that there are some Norwegian Jews but what makes you think Rumsfeld is Jewish?

        Their all crypto Jews. The infestation is through and through in the west. They are traitors to their host countries. Always have been. Here’s what one serious, very intelligent statesman of Rome said about them :

        “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through…all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

        For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” –

        – Marcus Tullius Cicero

          Nice. I like it.

        He worked side by side with Wolfowitz, Feith, Libby, the Kristol, Shulsky and I always thought he was one of them. Together they determined 10 years of American foreign policy of war.

      • Brother Ma

        Yes but that itself does not conclusively tell us he is Jewish or his family was originally Jewish. The heretic Christian Zionists also help Jews but they are not Jewish.
