Did somebody say Ukrainian beach break? And on the American taxpayer’s dime?
Ukraine first, America last.
That’s the motto for Joe Biden, Democrats, and Rino Republicans.
While Americans’ pockets continue hurting due to record-high gas prices and soaring inflation, Ukrainians, amid a war with Russia, are flocking to the beaches of Kiev to work on their tan.
And the Ukrainian beach break is happening weeks after Biden sent another $40 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds to the country.
Nice to see someone enjoying our $40 billion while Americans can’t afford to go on their summer vacations or buy food. Most Ukrainian didn’t take clotshots either while Americans had them mandated by government as a condition of employment.https://t.co/AWEy2kZX7T

While Americans cannot find baby formula and struggle to buy gas and groceries, it appears the $40 billion check cleared in Ukraine.
Residents of Ukraine’s capital city flocked to the beaches in droves over the weekend to enjoy the balmy summer temperatures.
Photos show the city’s central beach packed with Ukrainians basking in the sunshine.
Daily Mail reported:
Residents of Kyiv were out in their droves on Saturday to make the most of 34 degree temperatures, with hundreds enjoying the sunshine on the city’s central beach – just weeks after Ukraine’s capital came under siege from Russia’s invading armies and rocket strikes levelled buildings and killed civilians.
Pictures from the banks of the Dnieper river that courses through Kyiv showed people lounging in the sun, swimming in the water and playing games of volleyball, with the city’s skyline seen across the river.
Earlier this year, the same view of the city would have featured smoke rising above the skyline as Russian shells bombarded Kyiv and Ukrainian defenders fought to keep their would-be conquerors from reaching its centre.
Back then, snow covered much of the city. Now, the summer weather has coincided with relative peace after Vladimir Putin’s armies were pushed back from the capital and redeployed in eastern Ukraine.
But there is also a sense of anxiousness as men from the capital continue to be called to the front lines – where as many as 100 Ukrainian soldiers are dying in fighting each day – and the threat of attack still looms large, with Kyiv being struck by Russian missiles as recently as last Sunday.
After Russia’s initial assault on Kyiv was repelled in the invasion’s opening month, leaving death and destruction, the capital has found itself in the position of becoming largely a bystander in the war.
While Kyiv’s civilians enjoy a period of calmness, fighting continues to rage in Ukraine’s east and south, where Putin has redirected his forces and military resources.
The burned-out hulks of Russian tanks are still being hauled away from the capital’s outskirts, even as Western-supplied weapons turn more Russian armour into junk on battlefields barely 300 miles away.
