CIA And FBI ‘Advising’ Ukrainian Government

PIC: Mstyslav Chernov

German media reports that American intelligence and law enforcement assets are “advising” (make air quotes when you read that) the Ukrainian government. Advising. For freedom.

Berlin (AFP) – Dozens of specialists from the US Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation are advising the Ukrainian government, a German newspaper reported Sunday.

Citing unnamed German security sources, Bild am Sonntag said the CIA and FBI agents were helping Kiev end the rebellion in the east of Ukraine and set up a functioning security structure.

It said the agents were not directly involved in fighting with pro-Russian militants. “Their activity is limited to the capital Kiev,” the paper said.

    Oh good. I was afraid the collapse of this country was going to drag on forever. But now I can rest assured, since America is bringing its expertise from Afghanistan and Iraq to bear.

      can’t sponsor a coup without getting your hooks into the result

        I really feel bad for Ukrainians. From what I understand of Ukrainian history, they drew the short straw for the last couple thousand years–every time. Occupied by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, overrun by Cossacks, turned into serfs under the Czars, dehumanized along with the rest of the region by USSR, exploited and then abandoned by the Nazis during WWII–where does this horror end?

        I can understand them trying to play one bad guy overseas against the bad guy next door. It’s just a shame that it descended into the typical state-as-privatizing-money-funnel that east European states usually do.

          they are too weak to stand on their own and stuck between 2 rivals, they are screwed. no matter what they are going to be a vassal state, they just have to hope the kindest master wins the fight over them, I seriously doubt they will fare that much better under the EU.

            So . . . can I infer from this that you accept the ethnic nation state and the concomitant genocides and political corruption as permanent realities? I find that idea too horrible to contemplate. Not saying that it isn’t so, but it’s just too depressing for me right now.

            self determination is a commodity that must be bought, either with blood or money, it doesn’t appear that Ukraine has the strength for either

          • Liam_McGonagle

            Well, that calls into question the definition of self-determination. An ethnic mob goaded by a failing oligarch? A multi-ethnic mob cowed by a careerist bureaucrat? Where is the the ‘self’ in all of this? I’m sure it’s not the self of either the Russian or Ukrainian speaking proles of the region.

    I would bet they have been “advising” it before it was the Ukrainian government

      Pretty sure it’s your basic shock doctrine bullshit. Install pro western government, open the country up to western corporate exploitation; resources, labor, financial, with the added bonus of potentially cutting europe of from russian gas thus opening a market for us shale gas.

    The Ukraine has the incredible misfortune of being the junction for several routes between Europe and Asia. Its like being seated next to the restroom at a really bad Mexican Restaurant (Happy Stinko de Mayo btw!).
