US President Requests BILLIONS to “counter disinformation”

Hidden in the details of US President Biden’s $33 billion supplemental budget allocation to aid Ukraine is a clause dedicating 8.8 billion dollars to

“the Department of State for economic support and assistance to the people of Ukraine and other affected countries, including direct budgetary support, as well as support for food security, democracy, anticorruption, cybersecurity, counter-disinformation, human rights, atrocity documentation, energy, and emergency infrastructure needs.” {pdf page 41} The request specifically authorizes the transfer of these funds globally, outside of Ukraine.”

To put this in perspective, $8.8 billion is greater than the annual budgets of several US states. It is greater than annual spending on border security. It is greater than the total spending on US election campaigns.
