Skip to comments.Victoria Nuland [Obama Administration] Accused of Meeting With Neofascists in Washington
Posted on 05/19/2014 12:02:00 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
In an interview with Bloomberg News [URL at link], Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov asserted that Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland had meetings with the Ukrainian neofascist group Right Sector in Washington DC. The Right Sector has been involved in numerous killings including the burning of pro-Russian supporters in Odessa.
Whether Nuland met with Artyomenko or any other representative of the Right Sector to help with fundraising and support is unknown. What is known is that the US is supporting the gang in Kiev's "interim government" which includes Svoboda an openly neofascist party which aligns itself historically and currently with the principles of Hitler's Nazi party.

They would never meet with neofascists. I mean, Obama is against all forms of socialism, which fascists espouse.
The left has turned on Victoria Nuland. Under the bus she goes!!!
Must protect Obama. He didn’t know anything about this. /s
Pssssst... they’re called “Nazi’s”
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’d pay good money to slap that perpetually cocked eyebrow off of Miss Vickie’s smug, smirking mug....
Anyone that Obama’s gang is for I’m against.
This rule has always placed me on the good (or least worst) side so far...I see no reason to differ from this policy.
Those choosing the same side as Obama in this mess will eventually be found to be in error.
Obama has never aligned himself with anyone worthwhile.
This must be triple-top-secret, need-to-know information.
The conversations and meetings of State Department employees are all top national-security secrets.
The sheeple can’t know what the State Department is doing with foreign leaders; the secrecy is for the sheeple’s own good.
We’ll have to see if another video of her bragging makes it to the internet.
Then the news media and the administration will simply go silent on it anyway.
Of course our Marxists are happy to meet with fascist Nazis. They are really both exactly the same. Both want absolute power and control. All the other claptrap is just idiot bait window dressing.
And they will happily work together to maintain power in their own zones. Germans and Soviets did it. Now our communists and Ukrainian Nazis have found common needs.
I have a feeling certain spy agencies would know...
Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administrations messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland
Spouse: Robert Kagan
Robert Kagan is an adviser to Senator John McCain and his idea that the United States should continue to take a strong, and possibly a confrontational, role in world affairs accords with McCains own views.
Kagans brother Frederick was instrumental in persuading President Bush to reinforce US forces in Iraq with last years surge, against the advice of the Iraq Study Group of wise men at the time. The surge was and is a policy supported by John McCain and one of the reasons for his political success.
Obama taps Victoria Nuland for assistant secretary
Friday, May 24, 201
Following the announcement, Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which is tasked with confirming her nomination, remained mum on her nomination, though a committee source speaking to The Cable said there is very little chance the nomination wont trigger a fight.
Nuland, however, is something of an awkward target for Republicans. From 2003 to 2005, she served as principal deputy national security advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney. Her husband is prominent neoconservative writer Robert Kagan, co-founder of the Project for the New American Century and an advisor to Mitt Romneys failed presidential bid.
There are many RINOs that don’t care if Obama is involved in this or not.
To me, if he is, or his administration is, then why should anyone post anything here at FR that would help the Obama administration either directly or indirectly.
You are either for or against Obama’s policies.
Birds of a feather, flock together....
The Russian government has been lying since day one about Ukraine being run by Nazis, and there have been many articles on FR exposing these lies already. Why would one willingly take the word of the Russian FM in the first place when these people are confirmed liars? There is also an additional fact which makes the accusation even more stupid. It is already clear from the overwhelming public opinion polls from all over Ukraine, that the next president will not be from Svoboda or Right Sector, who poll in the single digits. It's going to be a moderate Pro-westerner and business man with, unfortunately, ties to other business men who are known to be in bed with Moscow in keeping Ukraine under an energy stranglehold (we shall see how this develops). Right Sector by the way only has membership in the country somewhere between 2000 to 10,000 people, depending on whose numbers you want to believe (RS boasts the latter number). I'll also add that RS is anti-EU and anti-American, and they do not even hide this.
So not only do the Putinistas want us to believe that Nuland is meeting with an insignificant group that has no political power, they want us to believe she is meeting with an insignificant group that would actively sabotage the alleged Soros-Obama conspiracy to bring the world under the EU!
Check this out.
This hack Nuland lied to the American public when she was at the State Department. She promoted the Benghiza Video lies.
I have yet to see Obama choose the right side in anything.
I forgot to respond to one more thing, the little insertion in the article about Right Sector “burning” civilians in Odessa. First of all, the “civilians” were armed with machine guns and pistols and were lobbing molotov cocktails themselves. They were pushed back into the building by soccer fans (who is dumb enough to mess with soccer fans?) AFTER they had already attacked the Unity march with bullet-fire, killing a man (or men?) and wounding others.
The article loses even more credibility the moment it takes the spin-view of the events in Odessa, as if innocent civilians, and not terrorists and Russian GRU, were marched into a chamber all peace in our time singing kum-by-ya as they roasted.
“The left has turned on Victoria Nuland. Under the bus she goes!!!”
I wouldn’t go that far...
FDL is persona-non-grata within the Daily Kos/U.S. Media leftist community, because they don’t always swallow the GroupThink fed to them by the Lefty Orgs/OFA.
They sometimes think for themselves, which is no longer allowed.
Don’t look at this as Left-vs-Left, but more like a few leftists waking up to reality.
So, since the next president won’t be Svoboda or Right Sector, we shouldn’t care about this?
What you say kinda Sounds like Hillary on Benghazi: What difference now does it make?
The Russkies are liars? Uh, Yeah. And the Obama administration isn’t corrupt? You know that the Obama administration is rotten.
Putinistas? Puhleeze. That is nothing but Ad Hominem to deflect from Obama and his rotten administration/cronies. Period.
