This DC party invite shows all the money to be made off the Ukraine war• https://www.vox.com, By Jonathan Guyer
Events like this are part of the social calendar of Washington's smart set, with hobnobbing diplomats, think tankers, journalists, and US officials. Guests took photos with the Ukrainian ambassador. Even Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley showed up.
But there was something so overt it led some observers to laugh out loud at the gathering's invitation.
The logos of military contractors Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Pratt & Whitney, and Lockheed Martin were emblazoned on the invitation as the event's sponsors, below the official Ukrainian emblems and elegant blue script that said the Ukrainian ambassador and defense attaché "request the pleasure of your company."
