Skip to comments.Zelensky Says Ukraine Lost Almost $500 Million to Biden War Hype: ‘We Don’t Need This Panic’
Posted on 01/28/2022 7:56:14 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned international corporate media and world leaders like President Joe Biden for publicly predicting imminent war with Russia on Friday, stating that the panic caused by these statements cost Ukraine 12.5 billion hryvnia (about $437 million) in foreign investment.
Zelensky spent nearly an hour and a half with reporters at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday following what has become a controversial phone conversation with President Biden on Thursday night. While the official readouts from both Washington and Kyiv depicted the call as productive and friendly, a CNN report based on anonymous sources described the call as frustrating and tedious, featuring harried warnings from Biden that Kyiv would be “sacked” and exasperated requests from Zelensky for the president to “calm down.”
Both the White House and the Ukrainian president’s office have rejected the CNN report, and Zelensky himself, during the press conference, repeatedly expressed gratitude to Biden without addressing the acute challenges the CNN report claimed exist in the relationship.
Zelensky did tell reporters that he spent much of the call emphasizing to Biden that telling the world that Russia would imminently invade Ukraine – something Kyiv has repeatedly stated there is little material evidence to believe – could lead to economic devastation in the country that would, in turn, increase the probability of a full-fledged Russian assault.

” the former president said: “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f... things up.””
What a disaster this guy is. /Captain Obvious
All of this is being instigated by the Democrats. Probably thinking we need to be in a war so they can win the mid-terms.
He needs a win in time for the SOTU Address!
He can get the 437 million in lost foreign investment back by giving the big guy 43.7 million.
I’m sure Joe would be happy to print $500m more to send to Ukraine to make them whole. But he will want his 10%.
President Retard is so good he can screw up multiple countries at once 🤪
Or expecting payback for participating in the coup against Trump.
Except, Zelensky isn’t easily intimidated.
Ukraine is being used as a political football to confirm the Democrats’ attempt to connect Trump and Russia.
Ukraine isn’t game
There are 120,000+ Russian soldiers, hundreds of missiles, thousands of tanks, fighter aircraft, etc.... surrounding you, they hate you and want to make you and all your people Russian slaves.
And you blame anyone else for foreign investment taking a hike?
what a joke our president is.
The Ukrainian President wants it both ways: there is enough urgency that the world should give Ukraine billions in defense assistance but not so much urgency that investors should steer clear. So which is it?
No one wants war except American Uniparty globalists. Not other NATO members, not Ukraine, and not Russia. Only the perpetual warmongering psychopaths in DC and their impotent fanboys.
Joe plans to destroy Ukraine and Zalensky for daring to investigate his and his crackhead son’s corruption.
He exceeded my wildest expectations.
Totally believable, because the nation and its citizens are not a priority for these scum.
Cancel the midterms is the war plan.
We lost trillions in our stock markets. Hope Biden and company got some good shorts on the market. Plenty more to come.
They could have paid Biden half of that and he wouldn’t have rattled the sabres. It would have been a lot cheaper for them paying only 50% to the Big Guy. I hope they learned their lesson.
