WATCH: Biden Admin Sends Billions To Ukraine, But Wont Help Detained American

No story better highlights the Biden administration’s priorities and commitments than this story.

Gonzalo Lira is an American writer, journalist, and YouTuber who made headlines and gained notoriety due to his criticisms of U.S. foreign policy regarding the U.S. proxy conflict in Ukraine.

Lira was an outspoken critic of what many see as U.S. bullying and a war that was ultimately engineered and exacerbated by the deep state and the military-industrial complex.

For this sin, he was imprisoned in Ukraine—the same country that the Biden administration is bankrupting our own country for. …

The same country that receives billions in U.S. financial aid and military equipment.

To make matters worse, sources claim that Lira has not been heard from since his arrest, prompting many to wonder if he is even still alive at this point.

Independent journalist Liam Cosgrove shared the State Department’s response, as well as several conversations with U.S. policymakers on this issue:

Trending Politics highlights the State Department’s recent response to securing Lira’s release:

At the briefing, a reporter described Lira’s arrest from several weeks ago and asked Miller, “Are you guys aware of this?

How do we feel about our allies detaining US citizens for free speech abroad?”

“I will say in general that we’re aware of the report. We obviously support the exercise of freedom of speech anywhere in the world and I’ll leave it at that,” said Miller.

Various outlets and individuals attempted to spread awareness about Lira’s situation, as it appears that the State Department is doing nothing to secure his release.

Here is just one example of Lira’s very vocal opinions about the current conflict—this is why Lira was jailed in one of the most corrupt countries on Earth:

One month ago, Yahoo News posted this article on Lira, which was originally written by “The New Voice of Ukraine”—a state propaganda outlet:

In spring 2022, he filmed provocative videos, showing the faces of Ukrainian soldiers and insulting the country’s defenders.

He posted the videos on YouTube and Twitter, where he has nearly 300,000 subscribers.

The SBU has also accused him of denying the facts of Russian missile strikes on Ukrainian cities and the mass killings of civilians by the invading forces.

During a search of his possessions, law enforcement officials found mobile phones and a computer that contained evidence of his illegal activity.
