    Agents Provocateurs and the Shadow War in Eastern Ukraine

    For weeks, Washington and Moscow have waged a bitter war of words over the
    fragile situation in Ukraine. But on Tuesday, the tenor of the discussion
    turned tantalizingly conspiratorial.
    On the Russian side, Moscow accused the U.S. of plotting a fascist crackdown in
    eastern Ukraine with the help of an obscure American contractor and a far-right
    nationalist party.
    On the American side, Secretary of State John Kerry accused Russian special
    agents of orchestrating riots in eastern Ukrainian as a pretext to war.
    With no way to substantiate either claim, the press was left collecting denials from
    the various cast of characters ensnared in the two conspiracy theories -- an effort
    that raised more questions than answers.
    The verbal food fight began with Kerry's fiery testimony at the Senate Foreign
    Relations Committee Tuesday, which reflected the Obama administration's
    growing concern that the unrest raging in the eastern Ukrainian cities of Kharkiv,
    Luhansk and Donetsk could offer Russian President Vladimir Putin an excuse for
    an armed incursion there.

    Pro-Russian demonstrators seized an array of government buildings in recent days and demanded the right to secede from Ukraine,
    leading Kiev to send troops to retake the compounds. On Tuesday, Kiev forces reclaimed a regional administration building in Kharkiv
    from pro-Russian forces while armed men retained control of a security-service building in Luhansk. U.S. officials worry that Putin is
    trying to force Ukraine into a clash with the protesters so Moscow would be able to justify an invasion on humanitarian grounds.
    That was the same playbook the Russian strongman used before invading and annexing Ukraine's Crimean peninsula earlier this year.

    "No one is fooled by what could potentially be a contrived pretext for military intervention just as we saw in Crimea," Kerry said.
    "These efforts are as ham-handed as they are transparent, and quite simply what we see from Russia is illegal and illegitimate effor
    t to destabilize a sovereign state and create a contrived crisis with paid operatives across an international boundary."

    The State Department did not offer evidence to back up Kerry's claim. And Kerry's counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, didn't take the accusations sitting down.

    In a retaliatory press conference, the Russian Foreign Minister dismissed claims that Russia played a role in the disturbances in southeastern Ukraine.
    "One shouldn't lay one's own fault at somebody else's door," he said at a press conference in Moscow.
    The Kremlin proceeded to propagate a separate conspiracy of its own: That the private American security contractor Greystone had joined forces
    with the far-right Ukrainian group Right Sector to neutralize pro-Russian residents in eastern Ukraine. The allegation came in the form of a statement
    from the Russian Foreign Ministry, but "experts" in Russian media quickly began amplifying the allegation. "We are talking about the continuation of the
    U.S. policy of military intervention in Ukraine and a preparatory stage for a massacre in southeastern Ukraine," said Igor Korotchenko, the
    editor-in-chief of Russian National Defense Magazine, in an interview.

    I understand that the source is a bit murky, but Ukrainians need to worry about Chetnik's. They specialize in the martial arts of slaughtering the innocent.

    Evidently fopreign Russians have deposed and possibly arrested local seperatists in Dontesk and Slovayansk (sp). If so, that would mean that the leaders of the largest seperatist factions are both foreigners. Likewise, the seperatist leader who murdered the Ukrainian hostages is also a foreign Russian. Is there a pattern here?

    We likely have mercenaries all over the place. I wouldn't doubt we have them in Ukraine, though Russia is not a reliable source in the least.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Bingo.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    US Refuses To Take Back 13 Dead CIA Spies Killed In Ukraine

    By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

    A stunning Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the United States has refused to repatriate the bodies of 13 Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) military operatives killed when their helicopters were shot down by pro-federalist forces on the outskirts of Slavyansk, eastern Ukraine this past Friday.

    According to this report, on 2 May the Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion of the 25th Separate Dnipropetrovsk Airborne Brigade of the Ukrainian Army, which had defected to the side of the pro-federalists in April, fired upon and downed two Russian made Mil Mi-17 transport helicopters belonging to the Ukrainian Air Force that had been attempting to land CIA military “command and control” operatives into the battle zone of Slavyansk.

    Of the 14 CIA military operatives aboard the two Mil Mi-17’s, this report continues, only one survived, who was initially identified as Captain Savuilov [photo 2nd left], but whose subsequent questioning revealed him to be an employee of the American mercenary company named Greystone Ltd.
