After push from Rick Perry, his backers got huge gas deal in Ukraine
The contract was awarded a little more than a month after the U.S. energy secretary attended PM Zelenskiy's May inauguration.
By Associated Press


"KYIV, Ukraine — Two political supporters of U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry secured a potentially lucrative oil and gas exploration deal from the Ukrainian government soon after Perry proposed one of the men as an adviser to the country's new president."
"Perry's efforts to influence Ukraine's energy policy came earlier this year, just as President Volodymyr Zelenskiy's new government was seeking military aid from the United States to defend against Russian aggression and allies of President Donald Trump were ramping up efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden."
"Perry's work in Ukraine places him at the center of the House impeachment inquiry into efforts by Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to press Zelenskiy to open an investigation into Biden and his son Hunter's business dealings with Burisma, another Ukrainian gas company."

Perry has announced that he is resigning from the Trump Administration. Hmm, one just has to wonder WHY? Far too many have left already as it is.
