“Fuck the EU” – US State Department blasts Europe..revealed as alleged mastermind behind Ukraine unrest

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-02-06/fuck-eu-us-state-department-blasts-europe-revealed-alleged-mastermind-behind-ukraine

A leaked recording of a telephone conversation allegedly between US assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland and the US envoy to the Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt discussing who should be in Ukraine’s next government has, according to The FT, threatened to fuel east-west tensions over the troubled nation’s future. In apparent frustration with the EU – which has failed to join the US in threatening sanctions against Ukraine’s leaders if they violently crush the protests – the voice resembling Ms Nuland at one point exclaims “Fuck the EU”.

As the two US diplomats decide whether “Klitsch” or “Yats” should be ‘in’ or ‘out’, listeners will be reminded (uncomfortably) that the governments of Ukraine and Russia previously alleged that the protests are being funded and orchestrated by the US. The authenticity of the recording has not been confirmed (though comparisons to Nuland’s recent media appearances provide some confidence) – the FT reported that the US embassy in Kiev declined to comment, which is a tacit admission: if the clip was a fake, the US would immediately make it clear.  Needless to say, as the FT adds, “[this clip] could also bolster a propaganda campaign by the governments of Ukraine and Russia alleging that the protests that erupted against Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovich last November are being funded and orchestrated by the US.

Its release ahead of the day the Sochi Olympics start is also somewhat disturbing. An excerpt on the US meddling… “I think Yats [Yatsenyuk] is the guy who’s got the economic experience, the governing experience,” Nuland says. “What he needs is Klitsch [Klitschko] and [Oleh] 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 Yatsenyuk, it’s just not going to work.” Pyatt agrees. “Let me work on Klitschko,” he can be heard saying, “and I think we should get a Western personality to come out here (to Ukraine) and midwife this thing.”

The controversial alleged Nuland “Fuck The EU” clip… (the discussion of the EU and UN involvement begins around 2:50)Via The FT, In a clip posted on YouTube, voices resembling those of Victoria Nuland, a US assistant secretary of state, and Geoffrey Pyatt, ambassador to Ukraine, are heard talking by telephone about how to resolve the stand-off in Kiev after two months of anti-government protests. In apparent frustration with the EU – which has failed to join the US in threatening sanctions against Ukraine’s leaders if they violently crush the protests – the voice resembling Ms Nuland at one point exclaims “F**k the EU”.

The two voices suggest Arseny Yatseniuk, the opposition leader and a former foreign minister, should be in a new government in Kiev. But Vitali Klitschko, a former heavyweight boxer and identified as “top dog” among opposition leaders, is also described as inexperienced and needing to “do his political homework”. The voice resembling Ms Nuland refers to the two men as “Yats” and “Klitsch”. It could also bolster a propaganda campaign by the governments of Ukraine and Russia alleging that the protests that erupted against Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovich last November are being funded and orchestrated by the US.

If there was any doubt whether the intercepted “Fuck the EU” phone call between Assistant Secretary of State Nuland and the US Ambassador to the Ukraine Pyatt was authentic, it can now be laid to rest: in an earlier response to questions from reporters, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did not dispute authenticity of recording and essentially confirmed it was real “I didn’t say it was inauthentic.” However, in the tried and true fashion of assigning blame elsewhere, the world learned that it was really all Russia’s fault and the released intercept was a “new low of Russian tradecraft.”

Psaki added that there are moments “in every diplomatic relationship” when you disagree, Psaki says. But the absolute punchline: “It’s concerning that private conversation was recorded.” Perhaps maybe the NSA can opine on the concernability of a private conversation being recorded. Then again in a world in which only the NSA is allowed to record every single private conversation, one can easily see why the State Dept thought it was safe to discuss its state subordination strategy over what appears to have been an unencrypted landline. At least the CIA used to communicate by encrypted redlines. Finally, while Russian “tradecraft” may have hit a new low, so did US reputation and standing abroad, however offset by the humiliation and embarrassment of US foreign policymakers which has never been higher.

  1. Angela Merkel Furious At Nuland’s “Fuck The EU” Comments

  2. Someone is about the be looking for a new job. LoL.

  3. There’s a spot open at CFTC

  4. I doubt she goes anywhere. She’s Kagan’s wife: I’m not sure she wasn’t instructed to make an incident, she is a long time insider, having worked for both Cheney and H. Clinton. & After all, she said “fuck the EU”, not “fuck Israel”.

  5. G20 to Coordinate to Hunt Down Taxes Worldwide

    Government is simply brain-dead. They fail to grasp that government is indeed a PUBLIC SERVANT and by no means are they the inherent nation themselves. They do not ADD to the national wealth since they produce nothing – they are the consumers of all wealth. Yet governments worldwide see ALWAYS the people as the problem and they are always the solution that must survive at all costs. There is no hope of reform. These people are out to destroy the world economy hunting down money everywhere. If you have $10,000 in cash in your pocket and PAID all your taxes, they can still confiscate it and you have the BURDEN or proof to establish it is even your money. The right to possession has been flipped on its head.

    The G20 is now looking to a global database to hunt down every hidden dime everywhere. The world’s leading economies are now coordinating together to trace every movement of money pooling such information on offshore and onshore bank accounts worldwide. At meetings this month in Australia, the finance ministers and central bankers of the G20 will agree on such an arrangement to coordinate all financial information everywhere. The problem is, you cannot even make a legitimate transfer of money without explanations and even then bankers may refuse to accept it. I personally tried to send $15,000 by wire to a friend in Asia to rent me an apartment for one month. HSBC refused to accept the wire because they could not guarantee I had no interest in his personal account. I had to write a check for expenses.

    These people are destroying the world economy on a grand scale. This is contributing to rise in unemployment for small business cannot expand into a major business and in Europe, the costs are just insane. These people have promised themselves lavish pensions and it will be your future they deem is their’s for the taking.

  7. Victoria Nuland is master of vulgarity and impertinent.Shamelessly she was promoted by Mr.Obama not long ago.

  8. Nom probably is that
    know Max is not YOUR cup of tea but this lady on 2 half is pretty good

    • ty, I will check it out. :)
      I used to love Keiser. Now I put Keiser in the mostly-truthful camp in that he is nearly always on the mark for diagnosing the problems of the financial system. But then there’s the not-truthful part: his ideas for solutions show him to be controlled opposition.

    • Ty again; that was a very good vid. The opener about the chinese all wanting to come here was horrible. The US is already set to double its already overly generous (legal) immigration allowance from 1 to 2 million/ yr. The last thing we need is more rich people who don’t think the rules apply to them. I would honestly prefer the illegal immigrants to them. I have heard other reasons for the chinese wanting to come here, especially less pollution and better educational opportunities; I do think those are probably more important factors than ease of corruption.
      The second part was quite interesting; I hadn’t been following the TTIP very closely. Kaucher’s take on “regulatory harmonization” was quite chilling. She does seem to be honest as well. I thought Keiser’s question, “Why do they set benchmarks against american disasters?” was quite good as well. Horrible that any government would want to repeat our disasters, but then of course 99 people’s disaster is 1 person’s dream. :(
