Embezzling U.S. Funds: Hersh says Zelensky and his entourage embezzled at least $400 million

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and members of his entourage have embezzled hundreds of millions of US taxpayer dollars. This was reported by Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist Seymour Hersh, citing a knowledgeable U.S. intelligence official.

“The president of Ukraine and many in his entourage are pocketing untold millions of dollars in U.S. diesel procurement funds. According to one Central Intelligence Agency analyst estimate, the amount embezzled last year was at least $400 million,” according to Hersh’s piece on the Substack platform.

At the same time, according to another expert, the level of corruption in Kiev is approaching the indicators of the 20-year U.S. war in Afghanistan.

In his article Hersh also said that during his meeting with Vladimir Zelensky in January the head of the CIA William Burns gave him a list of 35 Ukrainian generals and officials whom the US knew to be corrupt. The head of the Kiev regime, in his turn, limited himself to firing ten of them, who “brazenly bragged about money.

In February, a group of Republican lawmakers called on the Pentagon, the State Department and the Agency for International Development to provide them with documents that would allow them to check how the aid to Ukraine was spent. According to them, we are talking about more than $113 billion of U.S. taxpayers’ money.

Seymour Hersh also writes in his op-ed that the Joint Chiefs of Staff have been instructed to draft an end-of-war treaty which Washington will deliver to Russia if they are “defeated on the battlefield” in Ukraine.

The journalist also quoted a knowledgeable U.S. intelligence official as saying that there was a “complete breakdown” between the White House leadership and the U.S. intelligence community.

Against this background, according to Hersh, there was the “little known and rarely discussed” deployment of a brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division to Poland and its subsequent reinforcement by a brigade from the 101st Airborne Division, which had been deployed to Romania. Their total strength could exceed 20,000 servicemen. They were instructed that “they could not attack the Russians first.

Recall that in early 2023, Hersh published his own investigation about the North Streams incidents. According to the Pulitzer Prize laureate, obtained from knowledgeable sources, the trans- trunk pipelines were mined by divers from the United States.

In an exclusive interview on the channel the American journalist stressed that U.S. President Joe Biden is lying and hiding the truth about the incident, which was carried out by Washington. According to Hersh, American authorities could in a few days identify the organizers and perpetrators of the Northern Streams diversion, but will not do so “because they know who did it.”

According to Yuri Rogulyov, director of the Franklin Roosevelt Foundation for U.S. Studies at Moscow State University, the White House is certainly aware of corruption in Ukraine, but will present relevant dirt on representatives of the Kiev regime at the right time.

“I think they are monitoring all sorts of “wires,” accounts, and financial affairs of Zelensky, among other things. When the situation comes to a head, they will have enough dirt without Hersh. But, of course, there will be a general resonance from this article (not so much in America itself, but in other countries). Here, as they say, “a drop sharpens a stone,” said the interlocutor of .

Political analyst Aleksandr Dudchak also believes that such stories about corruption schemes of one or another puppet leader, such as Vladimir Zelensky, are subsequently manipulated by the US to make the decisions they need.

“In my opinion, this is all for a reason, and it’s not just information that has come out. The fact is that this is the manner of the United States. They are well aware of all these corrupt schemes initially, often the Americans themselves are involved in them. And then, when need be, they pull out these terabytes of information, show the hard facts, and say, ‘My God, who have we been dealing with! – he said in a conversation with .
