Zelensky Courts Wall Street Titans Amid Ukraine Crisis



Clear Facts

  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is engaging with Wall Street leaders at the World Economic Forum’s conference in Davos, aiming to boost financial support for Ukraine’s ongoing war with Russia.
  • Zelensky had discussions with JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman, and Bridgewater Associates Founder Ray Dalio.
  • The Ukrainian president is seeking investor support to aid Ukraine’s economy, as over $100 billion in aid from the U.S. and Europe is currently uncertain.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is making connections with Wall Street elites at the World Economic Forum’s conference in Davos, as reported by Bloomberg on Tuesday. The Ukrainian leader is seeking to increase financial backing to address his country’s ongoing conflict with Russia.

Zelensky was involved in discussions with prominent figures such as JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman, and Bridgewater Associates Founder Ray Dalio. These discussions took place on Tuesday, as per Bloomberg’s report. The Ukrainian president’s aim at the conference in Europe is to rally support for his country’s fight against Russia.

“I’m Jamie Dimon from JPMorgan Chase,” Dimon said when introducing himself to Zelensky, according to Bloomberg. “God bless you.” This quote illustrates the cordial nature of the interactions between Zelensky and the Wall Street leaders.

Zelensky is seeking investor backing to help Ukraine’s struggling economy. Over $100 billion in aid from the U.S. and Europe is currently in a state of uncertainty. Zelensky’s last appearance at Davos was in 2020, marking this as his first attendance at the World Economic Forum since Russia invaded his country.

The White House is pushing Congress to allocate more funds to Ukraine. White House budget chief Shalanda Young sent a letter in December to House Speaker Mike Johnson and Senate leaders. The letter warned that without congressional action, the United States will deplete its resources to continue supporting Ukraine in its war against Russia, as reported by Politico. President Joe Biden proposed a $106 billion supplemental spending package in October following the attack by Hamas on Israel, which includes over $61 billion in emergency funding for Ukraine.

Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dimon, Blackstone, and the Daily Caller News Foundation did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Bridgewater Associates was also unreachable for comment.

Clear Thoughts (op-ed)

While Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky seeks financial support from Wall Street elites at Davos, it’s essential to remember that the real solution to Ukraine’s ongoing conflict with Russia lies not in the halls of the World Economic Forum but in the policies enacted by governments.

Engaging with figures like Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase, Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone, and Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates showcases Zelensky’s attempts to secure financial backing.

However, it’s worth noting that the $100 billion in aid from the U.S. and Europe hangs in the balance. This uncertainty underscores the need for our leaders to prioritize policies that encourage stability and deter aggression, rather than merely throwing money at the problem.


While Zelensky’s engagement with Wall Street is understandable given his country’s desperate situation, we should be wary of the potential influence these financial elites may gain over Ukraine’s future.

Ultimately, the solution to Ukraine’s conflict lies in principled leadership, not just deep pockets.

    If we had a strong President Russia would not have invaded Ukraine. President Obama drew a line in the sand and threatened stern repercussions if Russia invaded Crimea, but when Russia did seize Crimea, Obama did nothing. Biden isn’t even half as decisive as Obama failed to be. The tragedy in Afghanistan showed all of our enemies that they could pursue their aggressive foreign agenda’s without any real repercussions from the Biden administration.

    If President Trump was in charge, none of this would have happened, all of the Biden family and his Administration are a bunch of self serving Communists.

    It’s not just Biden & his administration. The first 2 years of Trump’s admin, republicans controlled both the house & senate. They did nothing to back Trump in his attempts because he was not part of the DC culture. Lindsay & Mitch might as well be Dumbocrats.

    And how many billions have U.S. taxpayers already given to Zelensky’s corrupt regime? And what does his “military” have to show for it? You’ll have to search the pockets and bank accounts of the Biden Crime Family & Co. (and Zelensky’s wife’s personal shopping account) to see exactly where that money has gone. As for Russia being the villain, the UN made a big mistake in probing its long, militant fingers in Russia’s border states (Ukraine). That was provocation of the highest degree. Also remember that it was the Obama regime that installed Zelensky (former comedian and exotic dancer)—another mess Obama/Biden left for Trump to ‘attempt’ to clean up.

    No, let the Russian-speaking people of south and east Ukraine re-unite with the Motherland. The rest of Ukraine can come along if they want. I bet Russia would be more than willing to fund the cleanup.

      And we’re paying for their pension plan all the while our pension plans are being depleted. This guy has big ones and knows just where to go with his hand out. BLM all over again. I believe Joe Biden is still making a killing off this fiasco. Biden and family are the biggest grifters and know how to get there 10% of the grift!
