Ukraine’s leadership is highly stressed by Speaker McCarthy’s removal from office. They claim McCarthy, Jeffries and Biden made a secret deal last week to send more money to Ukraine. Supposedly, McCarthy confirmed yesterday the secret deal for Ukraine was true. Now, this money will be delayed, or could be rejected completely with a new speaker.
About two weeks ago, Ukraine set-up a temporary “humanitarian corridor” for cargo vessels, and several ships have departed since then from Ukraine’s Black Sea ports.
Yesterday morning, the rumor was that the Ukraine grain corridor deal will be renewed today. Last evening, Ukraine’s navy spokesperson, Dmytro Pletenchuk, said 12 more cargo vessels were ready to enter a new Black Sea shipping corridor on their way to Ukrainian ports as Ukraine defies a de facto Russian blockade on its vital sea exports.
