Janet Yellen: US Taxpayers Have 'Moral Duty' to aid Ukraine

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said American taxpayers have a “moral duty” to help Ukraine defend its borders by giving aid to the nation.

As The Daily Fetched reported on Monday, Yellen arrived in Kyiv for a surprise visit to announce a further $1.25 Billion in aid to Ukraine.

In a New York Times op-ed, Yellen wrote that U.S support “is motivated, first and foremost, by a moral duty to come to the aid of a people under attack.”

So far, more than $110 billion of taxpayer funds have been earmarked for Ukraine.

“Our work is not over. In fact, it is more vital than ever that we continue supporting the Ukrainians,” Yellen said.

“Ukraine’s military resistance depends on a government that can function effectively, as well as a stable economy that can help finance defense efforts over the long term,” Yellen added.

“By fortifying the ‘home front,’ our economic assistance is helping make possible Ukraine’s stalwart frontline defense against Russia,” she continued.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has imposed 1,500 new and 750 amended sanctions against Russia.

According to Yellen, the sanctions have “systematically degraded Russia’s military-industrial complex and reduced revenues that the Kremlin is relying on to fund its war. As demonstrated by our new actions last week, we will not rest until the war is over.”

But critics say the harsh measures have caused the conflict to escalate, preventing Russian President Vladimir Putin from an off-ramp to end the conflict without damaging his domestic political standing.

Unsurprisingly, Yellen’s op-ed failed to mention the U.S. southern border invasion. Instead, the Treasury Secretary proclaimed the money sent to Ukraine would match “our commitment to our ideals — and our capacity to see in others the same desires that animated our own struggles for freedom and justice.”

Since president Donald Trump left office, the Southern border has become an all-out invasion, with approximately 300,000 illegal migrants slipping through border patrol and into the interior this year alone.

Yellen isn’t the only high-profile politician to offer taxpayer funds to defend Ukraine.

Sen. Mitch McConnell claimed Ukraine’s border security from the Russian invasion was a priority.

“As my fellow leading Republicans and I have explained, it is not an act of charity for the United States and our NATO allies to help supply the Ukrainian people’s self-defense,” McConnell said.

“It is a direct investment in our own core national interests. America is a world power with worldwide interests. Our security and prosperity are deeply intertwined with a secure and stable Europe.”

President Joe Biden also declared his support for Ukraine in a speech in Poland.

“We will hold those accountable for those responsible for this war and will seek justice for the war crimes and crimes against humanity continuing to be committed by the Russians,” he said, announcing additional sanctions.

“And we are going to announce more sanctions this week together with our partners,” he added.

The total US economic and military aid sent to Ukraine has surpassed $115 billion to $200 billion.

From the same woman who believes we have a “moral obligation” to murder unborn children and castrate born ones.
