Anti-Trump former U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman sought to earn millions of dollars in profits by negotiating arms deals between NATO and the Ukrainian military during the Ukraine-Russia conflict.
Vindman is the CEO of a company called Trident Support.
Documents show the organization has been reaching out to the Ukrainian government for a contract in exchange for assisting with the “readiness, repair, and maintenance” of weapons being delivered to the Eastern European nation.
According to a new report from Human Events, Vindman proposed that for $12 million in initial funding, his company Trident Support would bring support closer to the front lines by providing a logistical midpoint from which equipment could be distributed.
Essentially, the retired United States Army lieutenant colonel would charge a massive fee to teach Ukraine’s military how to use and maintain the NATO equipment.
Vindman’s twin brother Yevgeny, who is an Army colonel and was a deputy legal advisor for the U.S. National Security Council (NSC) under Biden, is the president of Trident Support.
Yevgeny is actually the person who reported the call between his brother Alex and then-President Donald Trump to senior White House lawyers.
The report led to the sham impeachment trials against Trump.
The phone call was between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
During the call, Trump asked about Joe Biden’s threats to withhold funding to Ukraine unless they fired a prosecutor who was investigating a company linked to his son Hunter Biden.
Biden was filmed boasting that he told Ukraine they wouldn’t get the $1 billion in U.S. taxpayer-funded aid until the prosecutor was fired.
Biden infamously said of the Ukrainian prosecutor, “well, son of a b*tch! He got fired.”
So in 2018,Joe Biden was boasting about using a billion-dollar loan agreement with Ukraine as leverage to get a prosecutor fired as he was investigating corruption at Burisma.

Alexander Vindman claimed Trump’s inquiry was “improper” since he was suggesting the foreign nation investigate Biden’s blatant wrongdoings.
What really triggered the Vindman brothers was when Trump put a hold on the almost $400 million Congress had approved for Ukraine.
While Biden had threatened to hold the money unless the search dogs were called off the trail of his son’s company Burisma, the Trump admin held the funding as part of a standard procedure.
Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec talked about the story on Real America’s Voice this week.
“Alexander Vindman has been pitching the government of Ukraine to obtain lucrative defense contracts,” Posobiec said.
Posobiec also discussed the news during an appearance at this week’s 2023 CPAC.
“Vindman and his brother have been going to the government of Ukraine, shaking them down for up to 12 million dollars in defense contracts because he started the war and now he’s trying to profit off of the very same war that he started…” he told attendees.
GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) commented about the Vindman news on Twitter.
“Now we know why this loser was so quick to lie about our anti-foreign war President Trump,” Greene said.
“He enjoys fattening his wallet with blood money, and we should stop the flow.”
In response to the viral Human Events article, Alexander Vindman on Twitter asked, “Attorneys, is there a defamation suit here?”
He also admitted he’s trying to secure funds to “help Ukraine win the war.”
“Can’t wait to read all your communications with the Ukraine govt over the last 5 years. Discovery.”
