Kiev Journalist: Poroshenko Uses the War in Donbass to Embezzle State Defence Money

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


The illegitimate president and oligarch Petro Poroshenko doesn’t want to stop the war in Donbass, which brings to him a huge income that can’t be received by selling candy.

Aleksandr Dubinsky, the Kiev journalist and editor of the “Groshi” program on the “1 + 1” channel, belonging to the Dnepropetrovsk oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, wrote about this on his page on Facebook.

“Of course, Petro Poroshenko isn’t going to fight against Russia. But he also isn’t going to stop this war [in Donbass – ed]. Because it isn’t profitable for him,” noted Dubinsky. “The defense budget exceeds a record 167 billion hryvnia, from which his people – the curator of Ukroboronprom Gladkovsky-Svynarchuk and the head of the concern Romanov – on average divide up 30% for themselves. 50 billion hryvnia or nearly $2 billion per year. What kind of peace are we speaking about here?”.


Capital is said by a Quarterly Reviewer to fly turbulence and strife, and to be timid, which is very true; but this is very incompletely stating the question. Capital eschews no profit, or very small profit, just as Nature was formerly said to abhor a vacuum. With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 per cent. will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 per cent. certain will produce eagerness; 50 per cent., positive audacity; 100 per cent. will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 per cent., and there is not a crime at which it will scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged. If turbulence and strife will bring a profit, it will freely encourage both. Smuggling and the slave-trade have amply proved all that is here stated.”

Thomas Dunning, as quoted by Karl Marx in “Das Kapital”
