The man just keeps on losing and lying…lying and losing.
Not even a week has gone by since Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko came back from the UAE (gloating about his victorious trip which closed up to 20 contracts on the supply of weaponry to Ukraine) when the UAE finally spoke up and set the record straight…because Porky obviously was not going to tell the truth.
UAE Assistant Foreign Minister for Security and Military Affairs, Faris Mazrouei told Emarat Al Youm web portal…
“The UAE and Ukraine signed an agreement on military and security cooperation…The agreement does not foresee any deals on weapon deliveries between the countries.”
OUCH! That hurts….especially after comments like this from an advisor to Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, Anton Gerashchenko…
“Unlike Europeans and Americans, the Arabs aren’t afraid of Putin’s threats of a third world war starting in case of arms and ammunition supplies to Ukraine.”
Gerashchenko declared that weapons supplies to Ukraine will be UAE’s “little revenge” to Moscow, which, he alleged, Abu Dhabi blames for the recent drop in oil prices.
Did the real rulers of Ukraine, Vicky Nuland and Ambassador Pyatt, know of the UAE’s about face on the laundering of US weapons to Kiev? Better yet, maybe they ordered the UAE to halt the shipment, setting up Porky for another embarrassing defeat, and a Maidan moment in his future.
Or maybe its just another wake up call to Ukraine, so that the putsch government can finally understand that the end game is near, and no one wants to touch the insolvent, debt ridden country with a ten foot pole.
Poroshenko’s “big arm’s deal” was all over the news last week.

Ukraine to Buy ‘Defensive’ Weapons in U.A.E., President Says
This week, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a deal at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) to buy weapons from the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Ukraine is in dire need of weapons due to Russia’s invasion and minimal support from the West.
Today we get this from RT (and every other news channel)…
The United Arab Emirates is not selling military equipment to Ukraine, despite earlier statements by Kiev officials, the UAE Foreign Ministry said.
“An agreement on cooperation in defense technologies the UAE and Ukraine signed recently does not stipulate any contracts for deliveries of weaponry to the Ukrainian side,” said Faraj Faris al-Mazrouei, adviser to UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The deal was only one element in a future system of cooperation between the two countries in the field of defense technologies, RIA Novosti reported al-Mazrouei as saying, citing the Emarat Al-Yawm news portal.
