In a conversation leaked online and posted to YouTube on Feb. 4, voices closely resembling those of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland discuss loosely the roles of Ukrainian opposition leaders and the United Nations, and frustration over inaction and indecision by the European Union in solving Ukraine’s political crisis.

The woman, who sounds like Nuland, can be heard on the recording saying “fuck the EU,” while the man, who sounds like  Pyatt, refers to Vitali Klitschko as the “top dog” among opposition leaders but implies that Klitschko is too inexperienced to hold a top government post.

The Kyiv Post cannot verify the authenticity of the conversation. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv had no comment today, but said that Nuland might address the issue during a press conference in Kyiv on Feb. 7. If true, however, the disclosure represents a potentially big breach in security, which had been tightened by at U.S. embassies following the WikiLeaks disclosures of several years ago.

    Why would an assistant Sec of State say something like that over the phone to an embassy in what used to be the USSR? She had to have known the potential for being bugged was HIGH. This shit seems like a setup.

      typical Homeland hubris
      they never assume that
      a super secure, checked by the NWA room phone
      could be buggered
      butt it turns out Uncle Homey isn’t as secure as he thought
      my o my
      what will the Wizard of Oz do?

      They are not very smart at the State Department. I doubt if she even knows what the Cold War was and where the USSR ruled before she was born.

    Ha, ha. I love that things have become so comical.
    You’ve got countries tapping each other’s phone lines and mocking each other over homophobia, for propaganda purposes, obviously, but still, I think the absurdity of it all suggests that things may not be so dire.
