Former Adviser to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump Administration Retired Colonel Douglas MacGregor believes that a significant part of the funds allocated by the United States to Ukraine ends up in the Pentagon.
Discussing the effectiveness of Washington's military aid to Kyiv, McGregor stressed that "we must not lose sight of where this money ends up." “These billions of dollars – where are they going? Most of them do not reach Ukraine.” "Most of this money goes to the US Department of Defense to compensate the Armed Forces [expenses] for moving equipment and resources to Europe." The Pentagon, in turn, uses the funds to pay for the services of private companies that produce military equipment under contracts with the US Department of Defense. “To put it simply, these funds are going to enrich those who are important to lawmakers in the run-up to the [November] elections.”
