The web of Hunter Biden’s unethical behavior disguised as “business” continues to be unraveled in the public eye; if only the mainstream media would actually report it. Most recently to be discovered, Just the News reports:
“In the shadows of Russia’s first invasion of Ukraine in 2014, Hunter Biden and his business partners embarked on an aggressive campaign to score millions of dollars in ‘life changing’ business with oligarchs in both countries who had an interest in his father’s policymaking business, according to emails and court records.”
Specifically, Hunter and his associates targeted Russian oligarch Yelena Baturina and her husband, even arranging for them to meet with then-Vice president Joe Biden at “an intimate diner in Washington in 2015.”
Baturina was sanctioned by the U.S. in 2018 for approximately $200 million, just a few years after Hunter helped her secure a bank account in America, emails show. While courting Baturina, Hunter was also working the Ukrainian side.
Hunter received the high paying position and consulting deals with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky and his company, the famous Burisma Holdings. The U.S. and Great Britain already wanted Burisma Holdings investigated for corruption at that time.
One of Hunter’s business associates John Galanis, who has been convicted for their unethical work, declared in a sworn affidavit to a federal court that Hunter Biden was promising oligarchs “quid pro quo” access to his father in Washington and the U.S. government:
“Jason Galanis gave his interest in Burnham/Wealth Assurance to Archer on the prospect that Archer and Hunter Biden would continue to attract foreign oligarchs on the promise of high level political contacts,” John Galanis swore in a January 2020 affidavit that unequivocally referred to the scheme as “political influence peddling.”
Within Just the News’ incredibly detailed expose of the matter, the outlet reports:
Ever since Just the News and a Senate committee first revealed in 2020 that Baturina sent $3.5 million to a firm inside Hunter Biden’s business circle, Democrats and their defenders have tried to distance the family from the Russian oligarch. The Senate report, citing a media story, said Hunter Biden cofounded the firm that received that Baturina payment; Hunter Biden’s lawyer has said he didn’t have an ownership stake in the firm and wasn’t a cofounder.
But the memos make clear Hunter Biden had direct dealings and was on a first-name basis with Baturina as they pitched her deals, which included a $40 million real estate venture in New York through the Burnham investment firm where Hunter Biden was listed as a vice chairman in the firm’s promotional materials. Hunter Biden’s team also tried to get her an American bank account, the records show…
…By mid-February 2014, the Russian oligarch planned to visit with Biden’s associates when she came to the U.S. for the official opening of her American account. On Feb. 14, 2014, Baturina wired $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, LLC (an entity linked to Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca empire), according to a U.S. Senate report. One week later, Yanukovych fled Ukraine and the country plunged further into chaos.
The same month that Baturina got U.S. bank account approval and wired the $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, then-Vice President Joe Biden was named Obama’s “point man” to deal with the chaos in Ukraine.
Hunter’s entanglement with the wealthy oligarchs coincided with Russia invading Ukraine:
With Joe Biden handling U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine, Hunter Biden and his business partners exploited the opportunity. “With Yelena in my now [sic],” Archer wrote to Hunter Biden on March 13, 2014. At that very moment, Russia — having already fully invaded Crimea — was amassing troops and armored vehicles in at least three more regions in eastern Ukraine: Belgorod, Kursk, and Rostov. And while the Ukrainian government was requesting lethal assistance from the U.S., the Obama-Biden administration “deferred” the request.
As Russia was invading Ukraine, Hunter Biden was in direct contact with the Russian oligarch while visiting in Italy, according to an email exchange between his associates. Hunter Biden had booked Archer a room and was “At [Villa] d’Este,” emails show.
It was all fun and games for Hunter Biden until January 2018, when the Trump administration “sanctioned more than 100 Russian state-run company CEOS and Russian oligarchs for having close ties to Putin.”
Among them was Elena Baturina, who “was number 12 on the list of oligarchs, just behind Alfa Bank founder Petr Aven.” And finally, most telling of all, Just the News emphasizes “And when President Trump tried to get to the bottom of the Biden Burisma scheme, the Democrats impeached him.”

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago
The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.
The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57% the preceding quarter.
The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.
592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:
They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.
Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.
Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
