The readers of the Chinese website Guangcha reacted with irony to the news about the US decision to allocate more than 13 billion dollars to Ukraine.
The relevant document was signed the day before by President Joe Biden. In total, according to Washington’s decision, Ukraine and “neighboring countries” will receive military and humanitarian aid worth $13.6 billion.
In the comments, users from China speculated on how exactly these funds would be implemented, and also shared their skepticism about the “generosity” of the United States.
“A big win for Ukraine, you can buy a new president,” one of them sneered.
“Looking at the way the Americans are doing business, 13.6 billion will be allocated in three years,” reflected another, suggesting that some of the funds will be implemented one way or another to meet Washington’s needs, including “the hard work of the American media.”
“What generosity! The Ukrainian people made a lot of money just by getting more attention from the U.S.,” the comments quipped.
“They rummaged through the arsenal, pulled out the weapons that were reaching their expiration date and, piled them together, calculated their market value at the time of manufacture. Wow, that turned out to be quite a lot,” the user added.
“In order for the U.S. imperialists to beat the euro, Ukraine voted for the “destruction of the country” in exchange for some $13.6 billion in monstrous inflation,” the reader suggested.
Some admitted that the funds would turn out to be a “regular loan,” and also predicted that Ukraine would turn into a “mercenary arena” with a paralyzed economy.
The new U.S. law includes the largest package of military, economic and humanitarian aid to Ukraine to date, which, among other things, includes spending to strengthen NATO’s “eastern flank” by deploying American forces there.
