Clinton Foundation’s Deep Financial Ties to Ukrainian Oligarch Who Pushed for Closer Ties to EU Revealed



Between 2009 and 2013, including when Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, according to that foundation, which is based in Kiev, Ukraine. It was created by Mr. Pinchuk, whose fortune stems from a pipe-making company. He served two terms as an elected member of the Ukrainian Parliament and is a proponent of closer ties between Ukraine and the European Union.

In 2008, Mr. Pinchuk made a five-year, $29 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, a wing of the foundation that coordinates charitable projects and funding for them but doesn’t handle the money. The pledge was to fund a program to train future Ukrainian leaders and professionals “to modernize Ukraine,” according to the Clinton Foundation. Several alumni are current members of the Ukrainian Parliament. Actual donations so far amount to only $1.8 million, a Pinchuk foundation spokesman said, citing the impact of the 2008 financial crisis.

It makes you wonder about what we don`t know, because we probably only now just the tip of the iceberg.

So we have not only the US government, son of Biden and Soros being involved in the Ukraine, but the Clintons also.

And then there are still people who try to dismiss the US involvement in the Ukrainian mess.

A fortune from a pipe making company?

Lots of ugly stuff being perpetrated by the clintons, as always, just like the Obama administration. Way too easy to fool the masses obssessed with sports and entertainment stars. The USA has become a Rod Serling twilight zone!


“[A] review of public event listings for the Clinton Global Initiative’s Annual Meeting found partnerships with at least six banks that were under investigation, involved in litigation or had been fined by government agencies and regulators at the time of the meeting. In every case, the bank in question was listed as a sponsor of the event even after the investigations were widely reported in the media.”

It’s not unusual for large banks and corporations to be investigated and fined from time to time, but to accept funds from and partner with banks actively under investigation raises a few eyebrows. More disconcerting is the connection the Wall Street Journal found between donors and companies Clinton championed during her tenure as Secretary of State."

Hillary Clinton just can’t catch a break. As her self-inflicted imbroglio over erasing 30,000 emails involving her time as Secretary of State continues to command press attention, the April issue of Harper’s Magazine is focusing gasp-worthy attention on the “loan-sharking” business that Bill Clinton, as President, assisted in transforming into the too-big-to-fail Citigroup that played a leading role in bringing the country to the brink of financial collapse in 2008.

This the kind of crap with politicians that just screams that they All need to be investigated and if necessary charged criminally or with treason. I don't just mean the US either, every country and colony, pretty much ALL the career politicians are corrupt and new ones will be soon enough.

She has had a huge spiral downward in the last 2 weeks or so. Can't think of anyone who deserves it more...except for Obama.

Think we can thank Valerie Jarrett for this.I have heard that the Obama's can't stand the Clintons and vise versa.The pentagon doesn't like Hillary,and Valerie Jarrett is on the Obama's side and she can't stand her either. They are purposely letting this all out just before she announces her run for president to slam her into either,not running,or if she does,she will lose because the people now know what all she has been up to.

Indeed, we do live on a money planet. Sad thing about that is that it doesn't have to be this way. Things could be a lot better for everyone without money.

You do understand that the Clinton Global Initiative (aka Clinton Foundation) is a non-profit charity and a completely separate entity from Bill or Hillary Clinton, right?

Victor Pinchuk is a Ukrainian Jew, and was awarded the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Medal of Honor by the Jewish Confederation for his role in saving Ukrainian Jews during WW2.


Philanthropy

Pinchuk has supported philanthropic projects in Ukraine. In 2006, he consolidated these activities under the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, which is now considered the largest private Ukrainian philanthropic foundation.

Its projects include the creation of a network of modern neonatal centres throughout Ukraine, cooperation programs with the Clinton Global Initiative, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the ANTIAIDS Foundation of his wife Olena Pinchuk, the creation of the Kyiv School of Economics, a cooperation with the Aspen Institute, the opening of the first large scale contemporary art centre in Ukraine PinchukArtCentre, the creation and development of the only Ukrainian private chamber orchestra, the production and promotion of a film with Steven Spielberg on the Holocaust in Ukraine, human rights projects with George Soros and support of local Jewish communities.

In June 2009, Pinchuk organized the Paul McCartney free concert on Independence Square in Kyiv in front of 500,000 people. As an initiative of the Pinchuk Art Center,[8] in December 2009 Pinchuk announced a new $100,000 prize for artists under the age of 35. The Future Generation Art Prize is awarded every two years and is open to any young artist who applies online. The jury includes Elton John, Eli Broad, Richard Armstrong, Glenn D. Lowry and/or Miuccia Prada. Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, Andreas Gursky and Jeff Koons, artists whose work Pinchuk collects, serve as mentors who support to the finalists and the winner.[8] In December 2010, the main prize was awarded to Brazilian artist Cinthia Marcelle.

In February 2013, Pinchuk committed to giving half or more of his fortune during his lifetime and beyond to philanthropic causes, joining the Giving Pledge, a philanthropic initiative founded in 2010 by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. source


He's also fiercely anti-Communist and resisted Russian incursions into Crimea and Ukraine - probably why all the Russian sock puppets on this site will be targeting him and any association to US politicians, even if the connection is only through donations to a charitable cause.

She could be trying the "poor me" strategy.
The big bad media is picking on her.
We had a man with African blood, now we should have a woman.
She has my stupid vote.

Ain't that well spent money then?

I guess, if Clintons organised today a collection for donations to whack Mr Putin off from office - they'd get more than the 8.6 million USD.

Giving still my 5 cents though...

Clinton biographer Ben Stein corroborated all of your evidence above and added "Bill is FURIOUS!!!!"

"Charitable cause"?

The Clinton Foundation is a pay-to-pay influence peddling scam so I would ask for your donation returned when this 2016 campaign fissiles-out in April 2015.

The requirement for getting a high end job in US government is to be completely corrupt

If you are not corrupt then in the end when they want to dump you they have to kill you

So corruption is useful to them

That is not entirely accurate. I have friends who work for Clinton Global Initiative, particularly in global commitments, stakeholder engagement, and fund-raising.

The Clinton's are VERY involved with Clinton Foundation and CGI. For example, their yearly main conference is usually headlined by the Clintons, including their daughter who works there.

www.clintonfoundation.org...

"Located in uptown Manhattan, the Harlem office is the personal office of President Bill Clinton, and typically has 5-8 interns each semester."

www.clintonfoundation.org...

"After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation with the mission to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for women and girls, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change. In 2013, to recognize the contributions of Secretary Clinton and Chelsea to the Foundation and to acknowledge their role in shaping the Foundation's future, the Foundation was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation."

However, having said all of that, I do NOT have the same negative views of CF nor CGI. For example, the entire goal of CGI is to get all kinds of powerful stakeholders (corporations, NGOs, wealthy individuals, etc) to sign onboard to various issues. Those issues can be anything from energy efficiency to early childhood education. My good friend did exactly this regarding sustainability, architecture, and energy I believe.
