Skip to comments.Dozens Of CIA, FBI Agents "Advising Ukraine Government", German Press Reports

Now that the situation in Ukraine has officially been upgraded to "war", what really happens on the ground will remain largely wrapped by the fog of war on either side, with just one thing assured: a war it may be but more than anything it is a proxy war - one in which both western and Russian interests are manifest in the fighting, and killing, of mostly innocent civilians in Ukraine - a carbon copy replica of what happened last year in Syria.
The latest reminder of just this comes from AFP which reports, citing Germany's Bild, that "dozens of specialists from the US Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation are advising the Ukrainian government."
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.
The FBI agents are also helping the Kiev government fight organised crime, it added.
A group specialised in financial matters is to help trace the wealth of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, according to the report.
On the surface, this report is hardly surprising: we reported a month ago, subsequently confirmed by the White House, that CIA director Brennan had "secretly" visited Kiev in early April. It stands to logic that he was hardly alone and continuing the proud tradition of Libya, Egypt and Syria, the CIA was merely getting started unfolding the agency's core competency: regional destabilization.
What is very surprising is that Germany's press is finally stepping away from the western media propaganda umbrella and starting to report the side of the narrative that is in direct opposition to US interests in either Ukraine, or Germany.
So just who, and why, is pulling the strings on Germany's media outlets in a way that goes against the official Merkel fiction, if in agreement with Germany's commercial and industrial interests (as well as those of Europe's commission himself)?
And how soon before Germany's position, one clearly against the imposition of further sanctions on Russia and the additional alienation of the Kremlin, puts Germany on direct collision course with Obama and the US state department? And what then: will Germany, shunned by the US, have no choice but to reallign with the ascendent Eurasian axis of China and Russia. Stay tuned.
They should send the BLM while they are at it, Federalizing Ukraine...
Hmmmm, I wonder what the end game is for the CIA/FBI in setting up a "functioning security structure" for the Ukrainians? Did the government in Kiev ask for the CIA/FBI help? Maybe it did.
We'll never know the truth anyway, so why bother to wonder?
“that “dozens of specialists from the US Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation are advising the Ukrainian government.”
The FBI,,working Ukraine, nice. Remember back in the old days, when the FBI fought gangs in Chicago USA?
Not surprised by this, since we did help to overthrow the elected government.
The Russians have been claiming there are “English speakers” in Kiev, and in the field for several weeks.
100 Days of Being a Laughingstock in Paris (Obama versus the CIA)
They’re probably giving details about how to most effectively arrest plumbers, rodeo clowns, arrowhead collectors and ranchers.

Don’t they understand that not reporting the Obama line is racist, or homophobic, or sumpin’?
You are criticizing Obamas line in Kiev. You must be Spetsnaz/
Thanks for posting. Most interesting. As of right now 406 comments to the article on zh.
Might as well send in some IRS agents too, maybe sell some health insurance at gunpoint.
How embarrassing. The USA is the “go to” source if you are solidifying a National socialist coup. Guess they are the experts.

DailyKos,ObamaForAmerica,Seiu, MSNBC, Open Society, Omidyar Network, etc,etc,adn..
We have a lot of recent practice with this.
if the great FBI folks had still be fighting criminal gangs in Chicago... maybe we wouldn’t have had 2008 or 2012
In a sign of just how radically the order has shifted in the political and media world, neither the Times nor Schumer had a clue about the identity of the pseudonymous author behind Zero Hedge. As it happens, the founder is a 30-year-old Bulgarian immigrant banned from working in the brokerage business for insider trading. A former hedge-fund analyst, he’s also a zealous believer in a sweeping conspiracy that casts the alumni of Goldman Sachs as a powerful cabal at the helm of U.S. policy, with the Treasury and the Federal Reserve colluding to preserve the status quo. His antidote? A purifying market crash that leads to the elimination of the big banks altogether and the reinstatement of genuine free-market capitalism.
Never mind Dow 10,000. Dan Ivandjiiski is all about Dow Zero.
That's the nice thing about setting up a financial blog to cater to fellow anti-American conspiracy-mongers. It's not results-oriented, and he might even get funding from the Russian government, given its interest in advancing the cause of a pan-Slavic empire under Russian tutelage.
“A purifying market crash that leads to the elimination of the big banks altogether and the reinstatement of genuine free-market capitalism.”
Is that a bad thing? Zerohedge is not the only site with those predictions.
It was my understanding that “Tyler Durden” was more than one blogger. Thanks for the info.
Despite speculation that “Tyler Durden” is a pseudonym of Daniel Ivandjiiski, who was penalized for insider trading in New York in September 2008, Ivandjiiski denies being a founder of Zero Hedge. Rather, he says he is one of several writers contributing to the site under the pseudonym. In an interview, “Durden” said there were four editors at Zero Hedge but another editor says there are up to 40.
I had no idea we wanted the Ukraine to fail that bad? Well, at least the helpers will drain their ponds, reassemble blown up stuff in warehouses, impregnate the locals under the age of 20, and shoot a lot of dogs and pregnant women holding babies.
