Victoria Nuland Was Key Figure in Plotting 2014 Ukrainian Coup (Transcripts)
She's a menace to Ukraine
Victoria Nuland screwed up.
She was lobbed a softball question by Deep State Senator Marco Rubio while testifying to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and she whiffed. Worse. She seemed to verify the existence of bioweapon research labs in Ukraine—reportedly funded and operated by the United States Department of Defense. (We have the receipts.)
While reading RealClear Investigations bombshell of Clinton-Obama-Ukraine collusion in the 2016 election, I noticed a reference to a 2014 leaked phone call that implicates the United States government in the Ukrainian coup which led to Russia’s invasion.
Considering the current situation in Europe, the transcript is devastating. Victoria Nuland, Jake Sullivan, and Joe Biden should be in jail.
The Obama Administration wanted President Yanukovych gone. They felt he was too cozy with Putin. Victoria Nuland, then and now Undersecretary of State, seemed to plan the coup, and Jake Sullivan, then and now National Security Adviser to Joe Biden, got the “big guy’s” help.
On February 7, 2014, BBC published a leaked transcript of a call between Nuland and former Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. The two discussed who would replace Yanukovych.
What’s intriguing is the BBC reporter Jonathan Marcus’s color. For example:
Jonathan Marcus: The US says that it is working with all sides in the crisis to reach a peaceful solution, noting that "ultimately it is up to the Ukrainian people to decide their future". However this transcript suggests that the US has very clear ideas about what the outcome should be and is striving to achieve these goals. Russian spokesmen have insisted that the US is meddling in Ukraine's affairs - no more than Moscow, the cynic might say - but Washington clearly has its own game-plan. The clear purpose in leaking this conversation is to embarrass Washington and for audiences susceptible to Moscow's message to portray the US as interfering in Ukraine's domestic affairs.
But it gets better. We hear Nuland and Pyatt discussing who should replace the sitting President of Ukraine:
Nuland: Good. I don't think Klitsch should go into the government. I don't think it's necessary, I don't think it's a good idea.
Pyatt: Yeah. I guess... in terms of him not going into the government, just let him stay out and do his political homework and stuff. I'm just thinking in terms of sort of the process moving ahead we want to keep the moderate democrats together. The problem is going to be Tyahnybok [Oleh Tyahnybok, the other opposition leader] and his guys and I'm sure that's part of what [President Viktor] Yanukovych is calculating on all this.
Nuland: [Breaks in] I think Yats is the guy who's got the economic experience, the governing experience. He's the... what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside. He needs to be talking to them four times a week, you know. I just think Klitsch going in... he's going to be at that level working for Yatseniuk, it's just not going to work.
Pyatt: Yeah, no, I think that's right. OK. Good. Do you want us to set up a call with him as the next step?
Nuland expressed frustration with European Union’s patience with the Yunokovych administration and pushed to bypass the EU by having UN operatives do America’s bidding:
Nuland: OK. He's now gotten both Serry and [UN Secretary General] Ban Ki-moon to agree that Serry could come in Monday or Tuesday. So that would be great, I think, to help glue this thing and to have the UN help glue it and, you know, Fuck the EU.
And, again, Jonathan Marcus’s insightful commentary:
Jonathan Marcus: Not for the first time in an international crisis, the US expresses frustration at the EU's efforts. Washington and Brussels have not been completely in step during the Ukraine crisis. The EU is divided and to some extent hesitant about picking a fight with Moscow. It certainly cannot win a short-term battle for Ukraine's affections with Moscow - it just does not have the cash inducements available. The EU has sought to play a longer game; banking on its attraction over time. But the US clearly is determined to take a much more activist role.
And, now, we get into Jake Sullivan and “the big guy.”
Pyatt: No, exactly. And I think we've got to do something to make it stick together because you can be pretty sure that if it does start to gain altitude, that the Russians will be working behind the scenes to try to torpedo it. And again the fact that this is out there right now, I'm still trying to figure out in my mind why Yanukovych (garbled) that. In the meantime there's a Party of Regions faction meeting going on right now and I'm sure there's a lively argument going on in that group at this point. But anyway we could land jelly side up on this one if we move fast. So let me work on Klitschko and if you can just keep... we want to try to get somebody with an international personality to come out here and help to midwife this thing. The other issue is some kind of outreach to Yanukovych but we probably regroup on that tomorrow as we see how things start to fall into place.
Nuland: So on that piece Geoff, when I wrote the note [US vice-president's national security adviser Jake] Sullivan's come back to me VFR [direct to me], saying you need [US Vice-President Joe] Biden and I said probably tomorrow for an atta-boy and to get the deets [details] to stick. So Biden's willing.
Pyatt: OK. Great. Thanks.
Now, let’s see how Vox reported what happened next:
Since then, several big things have happened. In February, anti-government protests toppled the government and ran Yanukovych out of the country. Russia, trying to salvage its lost influence in Ukraine, invaded and annexed Crimea the next month. In April, pro-Russia separatist rebels began seizing territory in eastern Ukraine. The rebels shot down Malaysian Airlines flight 17 on July 17, killing 298 people, probably accidentally. Fighting between the rebels and the Ukrainian military intensified, the rebels started losing, and, in August, the Russian army overtly invaded eastern Ukraine to support the rebels. This has all brought the relationship between Russia and the West to its lowest point since the Cold War. Sanctions are pushing the Russian economy to the brink of recession, and more than 2,500 Ukrainians have been killed.
Vox, of course, didn’t report that the US State Department (Nuland, Pyatt, Sullivan), Vice-President Biden, President Obama, and the CIA orchestrated the coup that triggered Russia’s 2014 incursion and the annexation of Crimea. Nor did the Obama-controlled press report on the leaked Nuland-Pyatt transcript. Americans who don’t follow the BBC had no idea their government caused that episode, which was a prelude to the present war.
What’s fascinating is how these half-wit Democrats keep making the same mistakes that get other people killed. How they are never held to account. How they can lead the world into World War III and escape to their cozy million-dollar Doomsday Bunkers.
Ukraine’s misery is a result of US meddling. Zelenskyy was smart, he’d ask the US to stay the hell out of the situation instead of asking for more US assistance. The Obama and Biden administrations, with the joyful assistance of the CIA, have brought a curse upon Ukraine by trying to control the world.
As I wrote earlier, there are no good guys in the Ukraine-Russia war. The fact that the World Economic Forum has turned against Putin and Russia proves that.
And a leaked transcript from 2014 proves the US government is the worst friend a country can have.
