Yesterday’s important news is that Italy will give another 6 billion to Ukraine. Of the 50 billion announced to the EU today for Zelensky, Italy’s share is in fact around 12-13%. So if the EU is worth 50 billion, 6 billion will come to us
So far the EU has given a total of 84 billion, as you can read on his website in the section dedicated to Ukraine and of these 34 billion were military aid and the rest financial. Given that Italy’s share is between 12 and 13% (based on the weight of its GDP on the EU total), so far we have paid around 10 billion euros. With this new “package” approved today in Brussels we are then at 10+6 which makes 16 billion.
We continue to give money to a government that since 2014 has attacked Russian minorities in the east and south of Ukraine and that for two years has wanted to “reconquer” provinces that voted 90% to be with Russia, because they are made up of Russians, who speak Russian and feel Russian. “Be with whoever you want and be with whoever you want”, and the Russians from Donbass who have been mistreated for years have decided to be with the Russians. Point.
With 16 billion in Italy you can support births and not having to go and fetch the “missing workers” all the way to Central Africa to exploit them on starvation wages. However, all the media, even those supporting the “centre-right”, carefully avoid mentioning how many billions Italy has given and continues to give to the Zelensky regime which sends young Ukrainians to the massacre who are unable to pay the bribes to avoid the ‘enlistment. Even US media reports talk about how money is being stolen and the unofficial media is full of stories and images of the Ukrainian elite holidaying in France and buying villas around the world.
