Ukraine – the country that America has given more than $113 billion in taxpayer funds since February of 2022– has no respect for the hand that feeds them. The Zelensky regime has reportedly been throwing American journalists who write negatively about them in prison. Worse yet, President Biden doesn’t care! He argued just yesterday that nations need to give Ukraine MORE money.
Gonzalo Lira, an American citizen journalist is rotting behind bars in a Ukrainian prison for spreading supposed “Russian propaganda” according to a Ukrainian “Democracy” that doesn’t seem to believe in free speech.
Lira, is a dual citizen of the United States and Chile who was living in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv when the conflict broke out between Russia and Ukraine.
He was arrested in May of this year for producing what Ukraine branded as “pro-Russian propaganda” on his YouTube channel, where he questioned the narratives around the war presented in by the mainstream media and Zelensky’s blatantly corrupt government.
The American journalist is now reportedly facing five to eight years in prison under Ukraine’s wartime propaganda laws.
The Ukrainian government alleges that Lira “had a criminal intent aimed at the manufacture, distribution materials containing justification, recognition as legitimate, denial of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, which began in 2014, as well as justification, recognition as legitimate of the temporary occupation of part of Ukraine territory.”
Zelensky and co. are trying to label this American journalist as a Russian propagandist for simply discussing a narrative that doesn’t fall in line with the one they’re pushing.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has promised to “hunt down” all Russian propagandists and make them pay.
Sarah Ashton-Cirillo, a U.S. transgender soldier serving as an English-speaking spokesperson for Ukraine, recently issued a threat to any “Russian propagandist” who dares criticize the Ukrainian government.
The spokesperson said, “the teeth of the Russian devils will gnash ever harder, and their rabid mouths will foam in uncontrollable frenzy as the world will see a favorite Kremlin propagandist pay for their crimes… Propagandists will all be hunted down, and justice will be served.”
The U.S. State Department has confirmed that they’re well aware of the American citizen being detained in Ukraine and with all of that going on, Joe Biden has the nerve to ask Congress to send Ukraine ANOTHER $24 billion from now through the end of the year.
President Biden on Tuesday at the United Nations argued that investment in Ukraine was an investment in “the future of every country that seeks a world governed by basic rules.”
Apparently “basic rules” don’t include free speech as long as the Biden regime is concerned!
Lira for his part said that he feels the American government has no interest in saving him from the Ukrainian prison because he’s not “a black lesbian druggie, or a transgender grifter.”
