At least one country has the stones to say no to the establishment’s favorite country, Ukraine, and it’s not the U.S. The U.S., under the direction of President Joe Biden’s regime, has outspent the entire European continent in aid to Ukraine, and it’s not even close.

Even with that said, the country of Hungary is telling the European Union to kick rocks when it comes to giving more aid — or money for those playing the home game — to a country they say has become “increasingly belligerent” in Ukraine.

According to Bloomberg:

Hungary will block a further €500 million-euro ($542 million) tranche of EU financial assistance to Ukraine for now and would be reluctant to back further sanctions against Russia, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday.[…]

He also said that Ukraine was limiting the educational rights of the country’s ethnic Hungarian citizens. He lastly pointed to a report from the Washington Post suggesting that President Volodymyr Zelenskiy had at one point talked about blowing up the pipeline delivering oil from Russia to Hungary via Ukraine.

As of January 5, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB) reported that the U.S. “Congress has approved more than $113 billion of aid and military assistance to support the Ukraine government and allied nations.”

Also in January, the European Union Commission the “first installment” of three billion euros of the “up to” 18 billion euros of the “Macro-financial Assistance+ (MFA+) “package for Ukraine.”

Even with the entire European Union giving a fraction of the aid the U.S. has given so far, Hungary was wise to stand up and say, ‘No.’

Ukraine seems more and more like a pit for an endless amount of money to be sent to a country that has a vast history of corruption — just ask Joe Biden.

“I looked at [the Ukrainians] and said: 'I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money [$1 billion],” Biden said during comments he made about a Ukrainian prosecutor wanting to look into Hunter Biden’s Burisma dealings while at the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018. “Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”
