GOP Rep. Victoria Spartz emigrated to the US from Ukraine in 2000.
While hostile to Russia’s liberating SMO, she sharply criticized how the puppet Zelensky regime tracks US/NATO supplied weapons, munitions and equipment.
By letter to the fake Biden on July 8, she said the following:
“As part of a congressional oversight inquiry, I request your (regime) to brief Congress on the performed due diligence and oversight procedures related to (puppet) Zelensky’s chief of staff, Andrey Yermak, at the scheduled classified congressional oversight briefing on July 12, 2022,”
“Based on a variety of intelligence and actions by Mr. Yermak in Ukraine, Congress needs to obtain this information urgently.”
US/NATO regimes supply billions of dollars worth of military aid to Kiev with virtually no oversight.
Unaccounted for amounts of weapons and munitions end up for resale on the black market.
Most anything supplied by the US/West to Ukraine is available for resale this way — to terrorists, extremists and other dark forces, virtually anyone able to pay the going price.
There’s no ambiguity about deep-seated Ukrainian corruption.
While precisely how much of what’s supplied by the US/West in military aid is resold to eager buyers of every shape and kind, some of most all types of weapons and munitions ends up in unintended hands, including MANPADS.
They’re shoulder-launched, man-portable, surface-to-air missiles used to down aircraft, helicopters and UAVs.
Instead of exercising oversight on the disposition of these and other weapons — once delivered cross-border into Ukraine, anything goes.
Separately, Spartz criticized Yermak’s appointment of Oleg Tatarov “as his deputy for law enforcement to combat corruption.”
Instead of doing his job, he “delay(ed) the appointment of an independent anti-corruption prosecutor for over a year…”
He thus render(ed) the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) dysfunctional.”
“Tatarov was under investigation by the NABU in 2020 before his appointment where his case was inappropriately transferred to a regular prosecutor and closed.”
He and Yermak raised “many concerns with a variety of people in the US and internationally.”
Yet the Biden regime’s so-called national security advisor Sullivan regards them “highly.”
In response to Spartz’s legitimate criticism, Kiev’s so-called foreign ministry responded as follows, saying:
“We advise Ms. Spartz to stop trying to earn extra political capital on baseless speculation (sic) around the topic of war in our country and the grief of Ukrainians (sic).”
“Especially cynical (sic) are manipulations about Ukraine and its leadership from congresswomen of Ukrainian origin (sic).”
Defying reality, the so-called ministry also accused Spartz of “Russian propaganda” type accusations, adding:
“Stop undermining existing mechanisms of providing US military assistance to Ukraine (sic).”
“(B)ureaucratization and delaying the process” aids Russia (sic).
Separately, Russian Defense Minister, Sergey Shoigu, stressed that US/Western weapons supplied to Kiev “end up on the black market” for resale.
Interpol head, Jurgen Stock, raised the same concern.
In response to Spartz’s criticism, so-called Ukrainian lawmaker, Vladimir Ariev, tweeted the following:
“This is all very serious because such letters don’t come out of Congress without thorough suspicions.”
Former Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada (its so-called parliament) member, Borislav Berenza, said the following:
Expressions of “loyalty to Yermak and Tatarov (by Kiev’s so-called foreign ministry) lick their asses.”
The ministry defied reality by falsely claiming that Ukraine’s military provides the Biden regime (and its Western counterparts with) “comprehensive information about the use of” what’s supplied.
Separately, in response to the ministry’s coverup and denial of her criticism, Spartz said the following:
“I encourage the ministry to consider my statement with the kind of seriousness these questions about Mr. Yermak demand, instead of launching ad hominem attacks as they have thus far.”
“Ukrainians and Americans will be better served (if our ruling regimes respond) with due diligence — not defensive platitudes.”
Politico reported the following days earlier, saying:
“Tatarov, appointed by Zelensky in August 2020, was charged that December with bribery by Ukrainian authorities in a case concerning state-provided housing for National Guard members.”
“Tatarov denied the charges against him.”
“Anti-corruption activists gathered more than 25,000 signatures in an online petition, calling for Tatarov’s dismissal last year, but Zelensky refused to fire him.”
In January, Kiev’s Shevchenkivsky district court dropped (bribery and corruption related) charges against Tatarov.
Puppet Zelensky dismissed the petition as ordered by his US master.
Separately in response to Spartz’s criticism, an unnamed GOP House Foreign Affairs Committee member said the following:
“Her naiveness is hurting our own people (sic).”
“It is not helpful to what we’re trying to do and I’m not sure her facts are accurate (sic).”
“We vetted (the) guys” she criticized (sic).
Hardline GOP Senator Lindsey Graham also criticized Spartz, saying:
“I don’t share her criticisms.”
“(T)he Zelensky (regime) and Ukrainian people have risen to the moment (sic).”
And this rubbish by Ukraine’s so-called Verkhovna Rada majority leader, David Arakhamia:
Dubiously saying that the puppet Zelensky regime never opposed US oversight to monitor the disposition of military aid supplied (sic), he added:
“We actually welcomed this (sic).”
