FACT CHECK: No, Robert Kiyosaki Did Not Say Financial Aid To Ukraine Is Pointless

Elias Atienza | Senior Reporter

A video shared on X claims economist Robert Kiyosaki said financial aid to Ukraine is pointless.

Verdict: False

There is no evidence Kiyosaki said this.

Fact Check:

Ukraine has withdrawn from Avdiivka amid an ammunition shortage and a Russian offensive, according to Reuters. The city, which has been in Ukrainian hands since 2014, is the first major battlefield gain for Russia since Bakhmut fell in May 2023, the outlet reported.

Social media users are sharing a video claiming to show Bloomberg reporting that Kiyosaki said that further aid to Ukraine is pointless.

“Investing in Ukraine is the dumbest thing I’ve seen in my entire practice, no matter what the real goal is,” Kiyosaki allegedly said.

However, there is no evidence that Kiyosaki said or that Bloomberg reported this. If Kiyosaki had said this, media outlets would have covered it, yet none have. A wider internet search and a search of Kiyosaki’s social media accounts did not yield any results for this alleged remark.

A search of Bloomberg’s website did not yield any results, either. A search of Bloomberg’s social media accounts did not yield any results for the video in the original X post.

Stopfake also debunked this claim. (RELATED: Claim That U.S. Navy JAG Allegedly Hanged Tanya Skeen Is Satire)
